Whistler, B.C., Dec. 3--Whistler/Blackcomb announced yesterday the acquisition of two Westbeach retail locations in Vancouver and Whistler Village from Wyndcrest Partners, Ltd., a Florida-based investment partnership.

The Westbeach wholesale apparel business, a lifestyle company for all seasons, will remain with Wyndcrest Partners.

"Since the very beginning, Westbeach has been leading Canadian snowboard culture," said Todd Friesan, director of retail for Whistler/Blackcomb. "We intend on maintaining that culture and keeping the Westbeach brand very separate and distinct from the rest of our retail operations."
