A: I am originally from Bragg Creek, Alberta. I came out to visit a friend for New Year’s 1993 and could not believe the amount of snow and these incredible mountains. I made a couple more visits and was living here by August of that year.
A: I worked as a surveyor for a forestry company. Within a couple of years, I got back into mountain operations working for the snowmaking and grooming departments for Whistler/Blackcomb so I could take full advantage of the ski days.
A: I became a realtor in 2012. I bought my first home here in 2001 and had a keen interest in the market from there. This is always something I wanted to do and thought it would allow some flexibility to spend time with my family.
A: There is so much to enjoy here. The climate allows for year round outdoor activities, the food is incredible, and there is a really good mix of people that have come to call this place home. It is truly one of a kind.
A: Keep an open mind. There are so many great spaces here. You are bound to find more than you initially expected.
A: You get to meet people from all over the world and show them what makes this place so special.
A: Honestly, I love the work I am doing today. If I had to make a change, I might like to be doing something where I could help/work with animals.
A: Getting out with the kids for a bike ride or day on the hill.
A: We are incredibly lucky to have so many options for the kids here: ski school, bike camps, nature camps, dance… How many Kindergarten classes can say “Monday is for ski school”!?
A: Being able to raise a family in such a great place.
A: Everything you need is here, and it keeps getting better.
