Dave Healey

Cat operator, ski patroller, cinematographer, cook, lodge manager, Dave Healey came to Chatter Creek from a varied background. Originally from Burns Lake, Dave grew up in Keromeus where his parents were orchardists. His Dad built and operated the Red Ridge Fruitstand, a local landmark with an interesting history. Dave studied film in Ryerson College in Toronto , then moved to Banff where he became cook and lodge manager at "Half-Way Lodge", originally a waystation on the route to Assinaboine Lodge. He worked at Lake Louise for about 10 years, and then moved to KHR as the assistant leader of the ski patrol. Dave Healey has six years of experience fighting forest fires and has worked on trail crews in the Revelstoke and Glacier National Parks. Revelstoke is home for Dave, where he enjoys ski touring and rock climbing. Dave enjoys the staff at Chatter Creek. He feels they work well together and "get the job done".
