Whistler or Blackcomb: Both! I spend more time on the dark side (Blackcomb) these days but Whistler is the mountain I learned to ski on.

Whistler Blackcomb Wonder: Being inspired daily by the natural world outside my door.

First time skiing at Whistler Blackcomb: I had a seasons pass to WB in 1988 (the year I was born) and I've had one every season since. One of my earliest memories is skiing out to the Stu Inn (Khyber's cabin) on a warm spring day with my dad Bart - a pro patroller on Whistler for over 30 years.
