Doug is one of our longest-standing employees from his first day when we threw this lamb in with the lions at the 2001 Snow Show.

Mika has backpacked over 30 countries and ‘drifted’ to Yellowknife after hitchhiking across Canada in 2016 (and we couldn’t be happier). She is our buyer of outdoor/camping gear and takes care of canoe rentals, branded items etc. Her personality and positive attitude are infectious and her talk of travel will inspire you. If you are seeking some quality adventure and advice, she is the gal to ask and is always there to help you out.
Ben has been with us since 2018. He has years of experience in the cycling industry and as a bike mechanic. He is also a graduate of the Winterborne Bicycle Institute. When not at work Ben can be found riding the trails on his fat bike, pounding pavement on his road bike, or skiing the lakes.

Sakura has fallen in love with the north and Yellowknife, this amazing and beautiful (if sometimes cold) town. Coming to Canada 8 years ago after forgoing a return ticket to Japan, she became part of our sales team in October 2018 and can be seen on the store floor always willing to answer questions and help customers in need. Sakura loves to live a healthy and active life fueled with good food.
After living here as a small child, Jacqueline bloomed an everlasting love for everything northern and remigrated to the north in May 2019. When she’s not out on our sales floor helping and sharing a laugh or an occasional serenade with the customers (okay more than occasional) Jacqueline is working away, stepping lightly at Anytime Fitness or serving it up at the NWT Brewery. If she’s not working she enjoys rock climbing, running, eating delicious food, camping, and just being outside as much as possible… a true Jack of all trades Master of none.
