It is by following in his footsteps that we can keep his spirit alive and help others experience the same joy and happiness that he brought to all of us.
Looking ahead, we are filled with anticipation for the upcoming ski season here at Sun Peaks.
We are excited to welcome old friends and new faces alike as we gather around the shop, sharing stories, laughter, and the thrill of conquering the mountain together. Ian’s presence may be missed, but his legacy will forever guide us forward.
