Why Snow? Why Seasons? Why Snowboarding?

The answer is simple. Snow friends and adventure. Adventure and the mountains go hand in hand but snow friends aren't just friends they become your family. They share your passion for adventure, learning new skills, improving oneself and are there for you when you fail - just like family. These are the people who teach you and your children confidence & belief in yourself whilst in a lesson. These are the people that fit your equipment so you are set for success. These are the people that wake up at the crack of dawn and shovel snow to ensure the lift is running smoothly and ready for you to get maximum enjoyment from your day. They come from all corners of the globe and from a multitude of different backgrounds. Collectively they share the same objective. It doesn't matter if you ski or board when the snow starts falling the energy in the ski town rises. It becomes electric. These are just some of my snow friends who are like family and with whom I've had the absolute pleasure of working with in Whistler, BC, Canada.

Friends are like snowflakes, all different and all beautiful

Everybody has a passion. Something they wish they were doing 24/7.
We’re doing it.
We love playing in the mountains.
We left our desks, corners and unsatisfying duties to give purpose to our lives. To live.
Everybody has a passion. If you’re not doing what you love you need to start right now. I hope everyone is doing what they love.
