Having lived in Whistler since the answer to the question of “Where do you live?” elicited a puzzled “Where!?”, Ken Achenbach, through a long career as a Hall of Fame pro snowboarder, world famous photographer, writer, filmmaker and entrepreneur, has helped make Whistler what it is today; the heart and soul of mountain culture.
While traveling to 40 countries, Ken always kept a keen eye on real estate in Whistler as he continuously comparison-shopped the world with Whistler. He knows from experience how Whistler compares in price, value and vibe to pretty much every other ski town that matters, because chances are, he’s been there.
Ken is not scared of imagining a future and then doing everything it takes to make it happen. Called the “Godfather of Snowboarding in Canada”, he started the first exclusive snowboard store in the world when he was 15, expanding it to a chain of seven shops worldwide. Then co-inventing the Twintip snowboard when he was 22 and founding the first action sports summer camp when he was 24.
Having done all that, with his almost 40 years of sales and marketing experience, Ken knows that first and foremost; it’s all about you. Rabid dedication to other people’s success in life and in real estate is what drives him. Ken combines his boundless enthusiasm for Whistler with his accumulated skills and creativity to create a successful, stress free, real estate buying or selling experience for you that no one else can deliver.
