Whistler is not merely a resort, it is a community founded by dreams and aspirations. Whistler is a town created by the people who dreamt to live in the mountains and has become a “melting pot” of international diversity. There is a bond in people who share the same interests. At, Tribal we hope you can come to see and feel the awe-inspiring mountains, the warmth of canadians as they greet you in the village, and the calm of nature as you ski the Pacific northwest Coastal mountains.

Whistler was the main venue for all the snow sliding sports at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, and with a prominent presence by the world’s eyes last winter, Whistler’s name has been set in stone, becoming synonimous as one of the top ski resorts in the World.

Tribal Snow Academy’s founding director and family have been one of the pioneers in the development of the resort.  in the late 1970′s , Toshi Hamazaki (director’s father) established the International Heli-Ski School into Whistler as a veteran ski guide/ patrol / and Instructor, and later introduced the Japanese Tourist industry to Whistler.
