Spicy Sports is an independent company, locally owned and operated right here in BC! We have a strong Japanese influence, and that commitment to friendly service really comes direct from our owners. Here at Spicy we try to create a unique and positive atmosphere in store, and are proud to offer a genuine British Columbia experience.

He enjoys all aspects of the sport, from sledding in the back-country to lapping the resort with his family. If you have any questions about the various resorts in BC… Mark is the man to ask!
