Whistler or Blackcomb: Whistler! My all-time favorite run is Whistler's Peak to Creek. I do 3 of these runs usually on a good pow day and then I'm done!

Whistler Blackcomb Wonder: I've been fortunate enough to travel the world over the last 10 years, snowboarding for a living and I still rank Whistler Blackcomb as my #1 favorite place to be. The consistent snowfall coupled with the best terrain for snowboarding and a diverse mountain culture continually inspires me to progress as an athlete.

First time skiing or riding at Whistler Blackcomb: I spent day in and day out snowboarding mainly in Blackcomb Black Park. My nickname then was Punchy Pelosi, because I'd come to work (Earl's at the time) with black eyes. I guess my ability at the time was at a way lower level than what I thought! Ha ha. Thankfully since then things have changed and I no longer get black eyes as much.
