I just bought my first pair of DPS skiis and I'm thrilled. I had an awesome experience with Larry/James and all the staff. I started by visiting the store to look at their skiis and after a chat they narrowed down the selection to 2 skiis that would suit my ability and style. Next, I demoed both pairs within the same day. The first ski that they selected for me was the one that I bought, but I wanted to try others to make sure it was the best. Over a 3 day period, they selected the right ski for me, set me up to demo them and then setup my new pair and finally on day 3 applied the Phantom wax (apply once in the lifetime of the ski). Every morning I'd visit the store and they'd happily store my street boots while I skied. During the whole process I never felt pressured to purchase anything. Everything was done as an education which makes you feel like you're getting expertise help and value. Oh, and DPS skiis are the best skiis that I've ever skied on in my 50 years of skiing.

Had an excellent ebike trip 2 days ago with a bunch of my colleagues and it was great fun! The bikes were awesome, they're mountain e-bikes so really helps when doing uphill climbs and allows you to access so much terrain in the 3 hour trip. The guide Larry was absolutely lovely and extremely knowledgeable about the area. We did the trainwreck trip which I would highly recommend!

I was recently in Vancouver for work and had a day off. After checking the snow report, I decided to go to Whistler for the day. Caitlin and the team at the Escape Route Alpine Demo Centre did an outstanding job of getting me on the snow quickly and safely. I had an incredible day and it wouldn’t have happened without their assistance. Thank you very much!
