Outpost

We started Outpost with humble beginnings in 2018. Husband and wife duo, new baby, and no employees. Now, three years later we've added another baby to our family and our Outpost family has grown too. Outpost is a boutique property management company but our people are HUGE. Outpost is dedicated to ensuring that our guests have the best possible Whistler vacation and our owners feel at ease knowing their property is being well maintained and in good hands until they return to their home away from home.

Emlyn Grubb

Owner Relations Manager

Our in-house Welshman. Emlyn is proud of his heritage, but the inexcusably constant rain and his love of snowboarding drove him to the mountains years ago. Over time he has gained years of invaluable experience in property management across ski resorts in France, Austria & Switzerland. Emlyn is dedicated to developing great relationships with home owners and being able to showcase the phenomenal level of care that Outpost provides to their homes. Although a relatively new local; he has quickly embraced Canada, with all the biking and poutines that come along with it and is thrilled to call Whistler home. In the Winter, Emlyn can be found snowboarding in Whistler’s snow park or the backcountry. In Summer, he enjoys mountain biking and plunging into the Ocean to explore dive sites. He is finding BC’s water a little chilly though… Emlyn is excited to be part of the Outpost family and utilise his skills to help us achieve all our goals.
