If you rode a ski lift or walked through the village in the last 15 years, you probably met up with George Huxtable. About to turn 94, George has been a frequent-flyer on the mountain and in the village forever.
Maybe you shared a gondola ride and listened to a few of his Whistler stories, or bumped into him wandering around town, sharing his photos of flying gliders in Pemberton. Always happy. Always moving.
After 85 ski seasons, father hung up the boards a few years ago, but still rode the gondola daily to hold court in one of his favourite spots, the Roundhouse. Still happy and quick with his version of local and world history, George is now residing at the Hilltop House in Squamish.
Many of you have asked about George and I encourage you to stop in and visit him. The Hilltop House is a wonderful facility just off the highway beside the Squamish Hospital. Be prepared to be entertained.
Seasonís Greetings from the Huxtable family.
