Outpost

We started Outpost with humble beginnings in 2018. Husband and wife duo, new baby and no employees. Now, two years later we've added another baby to our family and our Outpost family has grown too. Outpost is still a relatively small 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

Guest Services Agent

Our very own 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 invaluable experience in hospitality management across ski resorts in Switzerland, France & Austria. A relatively new Whistler local; arriving in 2019, although he has quickly embraced the Canadian Rockies with all the biking and poutines that come along with it and is thrilled to call this adventure playground home. In the Winter, Emlyn can be found in Whistler’s snow park or backcountry on his board. In the Summer, he enjoys plunging into the Ocean to explore dive sites. He is finding Canadian water to be a little colder than Indonesia’s though… Emlyn is excited to be part of the Outpost family and utilise his skills to help us achieve all our goals.

Marlee Corra

Owner Relations Manager

Marlee is passionate about keeping the standards of our homes high and enjoys building relationships with our home owners to give them the best experience possible. Marlee is originally from Comox on “The Island” and studied Hospitality Management at Vancouver Island University. Marlee brings 17 years of Hospitality experience with her to Outpost, most of which she has spent working in Real Estate/Property Management. Outside of work, Marlee is an avid traveller and leads a very healthy and active lifestyle. Having lived in Whistler for 13+ years she now considers the surrounding mountains an extension of her backyard. She is a great resource if you want advice on which hiking or biking trails to tackle and, if your lucky, she might even give you the inside scoop on some of her favourite powder stashes on the ski hill… no promises on this one though.

Russell Bruyns

Maintenance Manager

My name is Russell. I’ve lived in Whistler for over 7 years. I was drawn here for the mountain biking, spending time in the outdoors, fishing, camping, and exploring the mountains. In the winter I’m an avid snowboarder. I love to enjoy a day on the hill followed by a cozy night by the fire with family and friends. I love helping people enjoy the magic of Whistler and thrilled to be a part of the Outpost team. I have a wide range of skills and enjoy being a part of an expert team.
