HISTORY, DEDICATION, EXPERIENCE: A TRUE WHISTLERITE
Bruce grew up in Penticton, first skied Whistler Mountain on a weekend from college in the sixties and became a dedicated Whistlerite when the community was known as Alta Lake way back in 1973. Bruce has seen a lot of change. When the resort was young and so was Bruce, he lived for four years without electricity or even running water in the winter.
He began working on the lifts like most here in those days and quickly attained a position on the professional ski patrol during his second year. Working as a patroller for twelve years he dedicated the last eight to training and validating the first civilian avalanche rescue dog in Canada. Creating and founding the Canadian Avalanche Rescue Dog Association (CARDA) with the help of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Parks Canada, Whistler Mountain Ski Corporation and other dog handlers from B.C., Alberta, and the Yukon was truly a dream come true.
Having a growing family in 1983 with the birth of his daughter made him realize that he needed to expand his career goals. Scaling back on his patrol activities by volunteering his services on both Blackcomb and Whistler allowed Bruce to concentrate on Real Estate. The timing was right when he got his licence in 1987. While living in Pemberton he worked the Pemberton market almost exclusively for years and also listed and sold in Whistler. He worked on several projects in both Whistler and Pemberton including The Marketplace Lodge, The Symphony, and Woodrun, Meadows Lane and Cottonwood Subdivision of Homes . After that Bruce moved back to Whistler and focused primarily on the Whistler market.
After thirty-five years on the mountains, Whistler/Blackcomb recently awarded Bruce with a LIFE TIME PASS. Lucky Guy! In addition to selling real estate Bruce continues his work with CARDA instructing at their annual validation courses. His grown daughter now lives in Vancouver and they recently travelled together in Europe.
Bruce knows Whistler and Pemberton inside and out, he's seen most of the development from the ground up, knows the landscape intimately, where the sun comes up and goes down and where the best locations are. He has nurtured friendships with clients from all over the world.
Bruce is passionate about Whistler and is dedicated to finding the perfect fit and the best deal possible for people who love Whistler.
