My first site blog

We are fast approaching the end of our first ski season as Treeline Six. It is hard to put into words the roller coaster we have been on since we left the UK and arrived in Canada last year, and embarked upon Operation Inspector Daddy! As with all good plans, it changed almost immediately, and then changed again, and pretty quickly we were ducking and diving through meeting rooms, mortgage consultants, a great realtor who steered us all the way (thank you Dave Beaty!!) and a month later than planned we took possession of Treeline Six with only 4 weeks to the beginning of ski season.

Now this was going to be a season of firsts. I had just given up my dream job, given up the stress and responsibility that went with being a head of department, and assumed full responsibility for a 2 year old, 2 dogs (one royalty and the other awaiting diagnosis for being bi-polar), one wife dropped into the BC medical world, two new homes and a start up security business; but thats another tale.

I have met and spoken to many new people on this journey, which has only just begun. In truth I haven’t skied anywhere near as much as I intended, and that took a bigger nose dive when I took a dive down our stairs and ruptured my ankle ligaments…but what a journey it is shaping up to be. I would love to thank every single one of our guests. It is very clear to us that you have seen the care we have taken in preparing our home to meet your expectations and that you have exercised the same care to look after it for us. I truly hope that we see you all back with us soon.

The snow arrived late, but boy did it arrive. In fact it is still arriving, and we have seen some wonderful spring conditions with 3 feet of snow last week.

I am intending on making this a regular blog, and I have no idea if there is any interest in reading it, but hey it feels good to write something down again that someone somewhere might read. I had thought of a Daddy Blog but there are so many, and then a daddy doggy blog..nope then a daddy doggy doctor daddy blog. In truth in the past year I have gone from a managerial role in the police to running a vacation home, our home, dog walking, full time parent, small business man and now dabbling at a little entrenpenuership…so titles please!!!

Lots of Enquiries

We would like to send out a big thank you for all the supportive messages, and a big hello to our new Facebook family, and to colleagues and friends in Jersey, Channel islands.

Presidents Weekend and Valentines are proving the most popular dates for enquires after Christmas, so if you are thinking of booking those dates, it might be worth getting in there soon.  Remember if you book 7 nights, you get the 7th night free.

 

Live across the world

So, after a few weeks of hard work, and working out a few abbreviations, we are now live on Facebook, VRBO, Home & away, Owners Direct and Trip Advisor…to name the most obvious. I’d just like to say a big thank you to messages of support and enquiries, we have been inundated with requests for New Years Eve, fortunately for Shel Haber and Family they are already booked for the whole week, the lucky group. Snow is looking great and Whistler at New Year is a blast!!
