Our youngest daughter Marianne, has been very successful in her snowboarding career and is now a member of the Canadian National Snowboard Team. Her ambition is to attend the Olympics representing Canada. To help her achieve this, and as sponsorship is non existent, we started our business – in particular the B&B, to help her fund her dream. She is on the right path to succeed in this dream and at the end of the season of 2012 she is ranked the second fastest Canadian Girl.
Video below is from a mini TV show featuring the Snowboard Team. Marianne is featured in this one.
