Our home

Greetings from Beautiful British Columbia in Western Canada and "Welcome" to our Winter Wonderland.
We are currently inviting enquiries for the 2019/20 Ski Season and also hoping for an exchange to PARIS for August 1 - 31, 2020.
Thank you Very Much to our recent Exchangees from Wanaka and Nelson, New Zealand who All had Amazing Skiing during their visit........and What an Incredible Season it was! - so No Wonder you All went home with Aching Knees and Huge Smiles on your Faces.
Sherry and I have spent the last 10 Canadian Winters in New Zealand while our Exchangees have Enjoyed Exceptional Skiing. at our 2 local Resorts - Red Mountain in Rossland BC and Whitewater Resort near Nelson BC., both of which are Internationally Acclaimed Ski Destinations.
We are Primarily interested in traveling from Early December till the end of March and can offer you some of the very BEST Outdoor Winter Recreation in all of Canada.
If You and Your Family are interested in Experiencing a Canadian White Christmas and a World Class Skiing Experience we look Forward to hearing from You.
This is Absolutely the best kept "Ski Secret in Canada" - away from the crowds of Whistler, Europe and the USA at a fraction of the cost. We are a 30 minute drive from Red Mountain which has an international reputation for exceptional skiing, and was recently judged the #2 Ski Destination in Canada behind Whistler - Blackcomb. Whitewater Ski area is an hour away and is renowned for its incredible Powder!
Sherry and I are retired so we are hoping for longer term exchanges. However, dates are flexible so anything is possible.
Our home is very comfortable with large private, beautifully maintained grounds in lawn and flowers - in Summer - and usually covered by Snow in Winter! You will find lots to see and do locally and we will provide you with reliable transportation to get out and about.
We are experienced exchangers, enjoy sharing our home and area with international travelers, and will gladly provide references.
Most of our Exchangees arrive in Vancouver and then take a 1 hour flight operated by Pacific Coastal Airlines to Trail, BC which is a small airport located less than a 15 minute drive from our home.
Sherry and I are in our early 70's and are both retired. We Skied at Red Mountain and Whitewater - for 25 years with our 3 sons until New Knees, a New Hip, and Too Many Birthdays curtailed our Skiing, which is why we now enjoy exchanging our Snow for Your Sunshine!
We have also skied throughout the BC Interior including Big White, Silver Star, Apex as well as the coastal Mountains in the Vancouver area and Whistler. We feel that we enjoy the Best of all Worlds right here in our own backyard.
We enjoy Walking, Gardening, Sightseeing, Photography, and Exploring New Destinations.
I'm also a keen fly-fisherman so anywhere that there might be a Trout About would be of particular interest.
We look forward to hearing from you.
