Hailing from la Belle Province, Gui brings a classic French Canadian style to Sunwolf. Having traveled to the West in his early 20s in search of big mountains and deep powder, Gui explored, worked and skied hard in the Rockies before planting roots in Squamish eight years ago.
Gui knows the hospitality industry—from being the master inspector of our cabins, to managing pretty much everything operational you could think of around here, he wears many crucial hats at Sunwolf. He’s the guy we call when we need an answer quickly, the problem solver, always thinking outside the box.
It’s rare, but when we can’t find him, Gui’s probably skiing, mountain biking, trail running, paddling or enjoying craft beer at one of the many breweries in town. When you see Gui, pick his brain on on how to fill your time in Squamish—you won’t be disappointed.
Tell us about your most memorable day in the local mountains?
Backcountry skiing on an overnight trip to Journeyman Lodge in the Callaghan Valley. We woke up to a crisp, bluebird day with 30 cm of fresh snow. We skied laps in the trees for hours. It was magical!
A little known spot you take visitors to in Squamish?
Squamish River Estuary. This spot is fairly well-known, but it’s often overlooked. It offers amazing views of the Chief and Howe Sound. It’s a great spot for a walk or run.
Best thing about working at Sunwolf?
The team, obviously, and the active lifestyle it allows us to have. We work hard and play even harder.
Favourite local craft beer?
Any beer brewed by A-Frame Brewing. I’m a big fan of their IPAs.
