Through a successful 12-year international ski racing career (highlighted by a World Cup hometown win in 1989), Rob’s travels have taken him to some of the more illustrious ski resorts around the world, experienced various mountain cultures first hand, built connections in a variety of communities and developed a far-reaching network of friends and colleagues. His international perspectives are tied together with the essential elite-level athletic principles that drove him throughout his youth: dedication, commitment, goal setting and a well-honed work ethic to achieve them.
And he’s not afraid to share these values with others. Over the last decade, the former champion has inspired athletes and fellow coaches to strive for ever-higher levels of performance... whether on the World Cup circuit where he worked with the Canadian women's Olympic speed team from 2004-10 or with local kids competing for the Whistler Mountain Ski Club where he’s been a Head Coach and Program Manager since 2010.
“Communication, reflection and an openness to constructive feedback” he says, “are keys to building solid foundations and lasting relationships”. He knows only too well the importance of taking enough time to understand his pupils and their needs in order to better unlock their potential.
Still active today and with a young outgoing family to raise, the long-time Whistlerite can’t imagine living elsewhere. His 11 and 12-year-old boys are avid adrenaline seekers who may well be following in their parent’s footsteps toward competitive success – whether they’re skiing, playing hockey, mountain biking or participating in any of the other gravity sports they enjoy. The whole family is in love with the many sports activities, the culture and the great sense of community that Whistler embodies.
With roots that run deep, not only in the Sea to Sky corridor, but the Okanagan Valley, South Chilcotins, Sunshine coast and all points in between… Rob Boyd has the knowledge and networks to help make your Real Estate dreams come true.
He has the amazing ability to balance the fun in life with being a true professional. Let Rob be your dream-maker as you consider buying a home or recreational property in Whistler.

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Rob since he moved to Whistler more than 30 years ago. The world knows him because of his efforts and accomplishments as a world class skier but people should also know that he brings the same level of commitment and hard work to all aspects of life both on and off the mountain. His knowledge of - and love for - the Whistler community is obvious and I have no doubt he will be successful in this new chapter.
