Why Whistler
Whistler is the mecca for client growth. Once we take a client into a new phase of their ability, Whistler is able to offer them that next stepping stone for continued growth. Its been my home for 25 years and I love it.
Perfect day?
Blue bird, fresh snow, skiing with friends and my kids, apres at the Dublin with a delicious guiness... Perfect!
Your message to the clients

The thing about skiing and boarding, says PJ, is that you can always be better. People think that they are at the top of their game but then you get to a place like Whistler & you see what is possible with the talent around you. Form, skill and confidence to tackle terrain can take you from a good skier to a great skier. The YES mantra: "powder, steeps, bumps or chutes, where you see obstacles - YES sees opportunity" come ski it with YES!
