We were two ski bums. Well, we weren’t exactly bums–we had good jobs, but we dreamed of a starting our own business that focused on service. We began by booking accommodation, transportation and activities. This led to managing a select group of homes allowing us to control quality and cleanliness. Now we have our own fleet of private ground charters and offer catering. We are grateful to have a fabulous team to make it all happen.

We’re not exactly sure what Karen does. She’s one of the bosses’ wives. When we want someone to wine, dine and ski with clients, she’s pretty hard working. Since she can spell and stuff, we put her to work writing when needed. And if you want to know about the local spas, Karen’s our expert. » contact Karen

Adam the Acadian from New-Brunswick has a strong hospitality and sales background. The scenery, lakes, hiking trails, skiing, festivals, and concerts have kept him in Whistler since 2011.

A sought after bassist, Art can be found in the clubs many evenings and weekends. He has a Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service, a strong background in computer graphics, photography and music, and the biggest smile in Whistler. Art is our maintenance manager and resident photographer.
Ian plays hard and works hard. In fact, sometimes we have to hold him back! He plays basketball, table tennis (2013 Whistler Wired Champion) and is ready to tackle every winter sport there is this season. Except the skeleton. With a baby on the way, he’s not allowed. Ian came to us in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science degree from the Philippines.
Simplicio Malacas is a hard-working family man and handyman. In 2013, he waved goodbye to the typhoons of his coastal town Burgos in the Philippines and joined our housekeeping/maintenance crew. His wife, daughters and grandson joined him a year later and he is one happy guy. Simplicio’s nursing degree will come in handy when his grandson is old enough to be tempted by the high-risk activities in Whistler.
Jason arrived in Whistler in 2003 wanting to take a gap year after graduating with a degree in Communications from Carleton University. Jason is an avid Jeep Club member and enjoys working on his lifted Jeep Wrangler. If he’s not driving our guests, there is a good chance he will be out exploring dirt roads, skiing powder, or swimming in one of the amazing Whistler lakes.
