So I can surf.  But can I snow board? Well, that's the reason that I moved to Whistler, BC. 


Anytime you want learn to ride or shred, look me up.  I also teach fly fishing.  My price?  A beer.


Voted the best resort in North America for the last few years, Whistler offers unrivaled skiing and a sensation numbing nightlife. The two mountains, Blackcomb and Whistler could keep you busy for a lifetime.

Even during summer at Whistler there is plenty to do such as climbing, fishing, mountain biking, kayaking, golfing and so on.  Just remember to take plenty of cash with you as it is not cheap.


Whistler has everything you will ever need to have the time of your life—and so much more.
