About Us


Spicy Sports is an independent company, locally owned and operated right here in BC! Our 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.

Here at Spicy Sports, we are proud of our experienced and certified technicians. Our staff has expertise in Alpine Skiing, Snowboarding, Snowshoeing, and Ski-touring. We all speak fluent English, but some also speak French, German, Spanish, Japanese, and Irish!

We all love to ski and snowboard in Whistler so please ask us to share their knowledge and passion for the mountains. Feel free to visit either store and let us help you with your Ski, Snowboard, and Bike needs.

Village Store Manager

Nico is from France and was only supposed to do 1 season, and that was 5 years ago. He now calls Whistler his permanent home. Before he arrived in Whistler, he travelled all around the world as an outdoor summer camp leader with teenagers at risk, developing life survival skills in the outdoors. He was also a motocross athlete and fell in love with mountain biking and skiing during his first season here. He has a very positive outgoing personality and that is what we appreciate on and off the hill. Pop into the Village shop to say hi!
