Originally from Fort McMurray, Sawyer’s passion for music and technology led him to Vancouver BC where he completed an Audio/Visual production program and laid on the beach. While this filled his heart with joy, he knew what would really make him happy would be to have a livable paycheck. This led him back to his lovely hometown to enroll in a 4th class Power Engineering course through BCIT and Syncrude Canada. Combining his varied education and his extensive experience working at hospitality venues in Banff for the last decade has given him all the knowledge required to maintain beautiful vacation properties...which includes solving any of those fun unforeseen issues that come up from time to time. When not on the tools or fulfilling Houseman duties after check-outs, you can find Sawyer BBQ’n with his cats in the sun or riding a motorcycle somewhere nice. Life is good!
Sawyer is the presence felt by all but rarely seen. He takes care of most of the maintenance concerns and upgrades needed that arise at any of our properties- we can't list them all, there isn't room. He is always looking for better ways to keep our properties in tip top shape, and even inspects after our cleaning contractors on occasion.

Originally from Guelph, Ontario, Carlee took a trip out to Calgary in her teenage years and first visited Banff. As soon as she saw the mountains she knew that she needed to move here. After finishing school she made it her mission to get a job in the Bow Valley and start her new life. In 2014 she got a summer job as a horse back trail guide in Banff and excitingly booked her one way ticket. When the summer came to an end she knew that she couldn’t leave so started working at a ski resort. After bouncing around to through seasonal jobs she found her way into hospitality and found her passion in cleaning.
Being a very outdoorsy person, Carlee quickly got into hiking in the summer months and skiing in the winter. On her days off you will probably find her outside somewhere in the woods or on the ski hill. She grew up riding horses and is a huge animal lover.
Carlee is the heart and soul of our cleaning operations. She cleans, inspects, and sets the standard that we hold our contractors and cleaning staff to. She takes great pride in her work, right down to how quickly (and beautifully) she folds a fitted sheet.

Claudia has been in the Bow Valley for oodles of years. She is wise in the ways of perfectly folding and organizing linen. In the summer months, you can see her joyfully riding her Super Cool Townie Bike around Canmore, with a big 'ol smile on her face.
Dream Implementation Facilitator
Athira was born in Bahrain, where she lived until the age of 9 before moving back to India where she completed secondary school. In 2018 she moved to Canada and began as a Software designing understudy in Ontario. After finishing 2 semesters, she observed that her affection lies in Hospitality and she changed her course of study to Hospitality and Hotel Operations Management. Intrigued by the various professions a someone specializing in customer service can accomplish, she attempted vocations in Bartending, Serving and so forth. In 2020, she went on an outing to Banff with her partner and became intrigued by the mountains and decided to return once her school wrapped up. She arrived at Canmore close to the end of 2021 and began her career as a Front Desk specialist which gave her the experience to join our team. In her spare time she gets a kick out of the chance to marathon watch exemplary motion pictures and partake in a day of barbecuing and yammer with her companions. Athira is one of the cheerful voices you'll hear if you call the Rockies Rentals office. She's a first point of contact for many of our guests by taking bookings and answering any and all of your questions.
