Alexander 'Alex' C. Bunbury was a land surveyor and the co-founder, along with his son Paul, of Bunbury Associates. His surveying projects included the Trans Mountain Pipeline, B.C. Rail, Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, Whistler Village, and the Grouse Mountain Gondolas. Alex and his wife Dorothy purchased property up Microwave Road (now Gondola Way) shortly after Whistler Mountain opened and built a ski cabin there. Bunbury was active in the Whistler community, serving as a member of North Shore Rescue, the Ski Patrol, the Fire Department, the Museum and Archives Society, and the Advisory Planning Board. An adventurous skier, he pioneered the Couloir run on Blackcomb Mountain, which was formerly known as Bunbury Chute. He also managed his sons' soccer teams.
