Dawn Titus – Defining The Envelope

But it wasn't just about home ownership. "When I reflect back on those years - when I try to understand why I'm still living here after all this time - it always comes down to one thing. People. People. People. Sure, the lifestyle is wonderful and the geography is totally amazing. But the friends I made along the way have been instrumental in making me stay here. I wouldn't be who I am without them..."

By the winter of 1984-'85, Dawn was working on Whistler Mountain as a member of the Guest Relations team. "Jan Halderman had decided that I was going to be the information lady at the Roundhouse," she says. And laughs. "I was totally intimidated. I hardly knew the mountain yet. What if somebody asked me something I didn't know the answer to?"

No problem. She had strong backup. "What a team we had in those years," she says, with a happy gleam in her eye. "Cate Webster, Heather Lynskey, Jacqui Reck, Susie Anderson - with Cathy Dixon running the show! It was a wonderful opportunity for me. I wasn't ready to go back to full-time teaching, so working on the mountain three days a week was absolutely great."

Next week: Dawn flexes her sporting muscles, deals with big changes in her life and flirts with leaving Whistler.
