Scott Roberts

Draw entry answer by Scott Roberts for the Whistler Museum event "Whistler's Mountain Identity [...]". In response to the question "What would you like to say about the past, present, and future of Whistler's Mountain Identity?" Scott responded:

"Let's remember an experience we all share. When riding a chairlift with tourists, when they find out you live here. The awe in their voice when they say "You live here?" That is our identity. These are our mountains + lakes + trails."
