She lived in Whistler until she was 28, during which time she met her husband, a Whistler Mountain Ski School instructor.

Shelley Adams is best known as the author of a series of cookbooks. She put together 70 recipes from the Fresh Tracks Cafe into her debut cookbook, "Whitewater Cooks". Since then, she has released three subsequent cookbooks from the resort kitchen. All four books have been national bestsellers.
