I Would Love to Live...

Howard Rode

Whistler locals will point out Howard Rode – at 89 he still puts in many days on the slopes, the oldest skier on the mountain. Howard has loved the mountains all his life. During the 1940s, he built his own cabin on Mount Seymour, felling trees and trimming logs. Later, he joined Alpine Club members at their cabin on weekends replete with hiking, skiing and social get-togethers – memorable days that he would love to live again.
