About us



We started Outpost with humble beginnings in 2018. Husband and wife duo, new baby, and no employees. Now, four 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.

Meet Our Team


Ben Thornhill

Owner/Operations Manager

Ben is the guy behind it all. A true Whistler local, he was born and raised between Whistler and Vancouver, primarily with 2 skis on his feet. His love for Whistler is infectious and he operates Outpost from a place of true passion for the mountains, lifestyle and community. Ben’s an avid golfer and can be found at Nicklaus North golf course, teeing off bright and early. When he’s not doing it all, he’s enjoying a local craft beer (likely Coast Mountain Brewing!) on a sunny patio.


Sarah Thornhill


Sarah is full of beans... literally! Her love for coffee is second only to her family; her two baby boys, dog and husband. She started Outpost because she is passionate about creating an elevated Whistler experience for our guests.


Emlyn Grubb

Business Development Manager

Emlyn is proud of his Welsh heritage, but the inexcusably constant rain and drive for adventure led him to explore the world.

During his years in European ski resorts, Emlyn's financial acumen shone through as he worked as an Area Accountant, overseeing the finances of multiple ski resorts.

Emlyn is dedicated to being an industry leader in business and takes pride in ensuring Outpost delivers our best in class product to our owners.

She enjoys immersing herself in nature, whether it be skiing, hiking, mountain biking or paddle boarding, and loves to end the day relaxing by a campfire.

Lois Blunt


Lois recently joined us from England, chasing the Canadian mountains after Winter seasons in the French alps. She adores all that mountain life has to offer, specifically the luxury of being able to ski so often. Her perfect Whistler day is skiing with friends in fresh powder, followed by pizza and craft beer at Handlebar and an apres spot with live music.


Kaarina ODea


Our Irish newcomer, Kaarina, joined us last year and is loving Whistler life and the variety of things to do here. It’s no surprise that her favourite bar in town is the Dubh Linn Gate Irish pub - “a home from home!” To her, a perfect day in Whistler is waking up to fresh snow, getting up the mountain with friends nice and early and ending the day with good food and happy hour drinks.
