Sno Limo heads to Japan 

By Andrew Mitchell

Whistler-based Sno-Limo Mountain Ecotouring, an on-mountain company that gives non-skiers a chance to tour the alpine in specially designed chairs, wrapped up its second winter in operation with an expansion to Grouse Mountain, Sun Peaks and Big White. Next winter the company will go international, with Sno-Limo partnering with Prince Hotels to offer services at three Japanese resorts — Myoko, Akakura and Naeba.

The service is getting a lot of use in Whistler. In addition to tourists, Sno-Limo has been used to film television shows and movies, and to transport media around the mountains.

The company was founded in Whistler by Paul Auger, a ski instructor for 20 years. The chair was also designed locally to allow guides to easily steer and guide guests, and to be loaded onto lifts.
