The ambassadors

MARIE

MarieAmbassador2019

Hi, I'm Marie and I was born in Berlin, the busy metropolitan capital of Germany. My parents decided to move to Thuringia when I was 8 years old, a place which has more trees than humans and is also known as “the green heart” of Germany. Living just 500 meters away from the forest and half an hour from a small ski hill I became a little ski racer in my teens before I pursued a carrier in film-production which brought me back to Berlin and later on to the beautiful cities of Lisbon and Edinburgh. In the winters I would leave my film projects for a couple of weeks to teach skiing in the Swiss Alps and of course to have some ski adventures for my own. 

In these recent years, I almost developed a split personality with one half wanting to live in a quiet place in the mountains and the other half craving for an international film, art and music scene. Whistler seemed to be a place where I can have both, so I packed my pack and came here just 3 months ago. Working for Ziptrek as a guide gives me a lot of joy. It combines adventure and education, and I can walk and zip through the trees every day. It is a great job to stay fit for ski touring adventures on my weekends and to spread the word about the importance of sustainability. Who would not like to have this job?

Hey, I’m Andrew, I’m originally from London, Ontario Canada but have been calling western Canada home now for almost five years. 

I have been guiding at Ziptrek since May 2018 and still get a kick out of meeting new friends every day from all over the world with a story to tell and an experience to share. 

When I’m not “working”, I can often be found on the ski slopes, on the golf course or finding a good hiking trail. 

With a background in journalism and media, I look forward to sharing some cool shots from around the Ziptrek course & Whistler as well with everyone!

Hiya, names Amanda, I'm from Australia and Ireland and I have been living in this sweet little town we call Whistler for a couple of years working as a Tour Guide/Guest Services agent and Photographer for Ziptrek Ecotours. 

I love working in the beautiful BC mountains and on my days off you will find me out exploring especially on my snowboard, taking photos whenever I can as I’m still a tourist at heart and enjoying my time here in this winter wonderland.
