Whistler Famous: Julia Murray

Whistler Famous: Julia Murray

This summer we’re taking time out to catch up with our local celebrities to get a glimpse into their Whistler life. Photographer Mirae Campbell caught up with long term Whistler local Julia Murray earlier this summer to see what this Olympic athlete athlete and adventurer was up to.

A regular on the Insider, responsible for getting us into shape for ski season year after year, Julia took us into her kitchen to chat about nutrition for active lifestyles – and play with her food a little.

Nikkey

Nikkey got her start in Whistler as an outdoor guide and the habit of talking about the place (whether her audience is listening or not) has clearly stuck. Whistler’s general laid-back lifestyle and immediate access to fun is what’s kept her around. When not hanging out on the Whistler Insider team Nikkey works as a freelance creative for outdoor and wellness brands. Nikkey’s favourite Whistler animal is the marmot- she just wants to pinch those fluffy cheeks! (but never would because she respects wildlife and really likes having her fingers attached to her hands.)
