Yosuke Henry Hamazaki - President
Has been running daily operations since day 1... "My father always took chances, and also believed in honest hard work.. He took a chance on a young me, as long as I had a clear vision on the path I wanted to chose..." .
TMC was a true revolt on the course of where Skiing was headed...We were "Free"skiing at its purest form. Music, Street culture, and a Uniqueness were true inspirations in the birth of our Shop and Outerwear brand...fast forward close to 30years, my 16year old self is still guiding my decisions... not just selling"whats popular...to the In crowd.." We were never the "jocks" of skiing and never believed in the mass Appeal...each and every Freeskier has his own style, and "Soul Riding" running through our veins ..Our Identity on the snow is everything. Its like the mountains are our Canvas...

Why you like skiing?
There’s no better feeling than messing about on the mountain with your mates. Charging around as a pack and challenging each other to hit features that are way out of our comfort zones. Skiing, to me, is about stepping away from mundane 9 till 5 corporate office hours… to live life and have fun.
Why you want to share your knowledge?
I love the buzz I get from seeing our customers' excitement when they find their dream set up. I want to share my knowledge of skiing to help others enjoy the mountains just as much as I do.
About my life and where I’m from…
I’m from the UK but have always taken any opportunity I get to head out to the French Alps for the winter ski and summer bike seasons. I’ve spent the last 5 years as a web developer sat behind a desk, dreaming of the mountains. I quit my job in 2023, purchased a one way ticket to Whistler and am now making that dream a reality. I could not be happier working at THE coolest ski store in Whistler… TMC!!!
