Make sure you check out Pittsburgh Native Elise Wims “Diva Chef” on BRAVO’s new series Après Ski that airs on Nov 2 10/9c. Set in the stunning Canadian ski town of Whistler, British Columbia, we meet a cast of characters who will do anything to make it in the travel concierge business. Joey Gibbons, a Canadian hospitality mogul, recently launched his own concierge company and is committed to taking the tourism industry to the next level. He’s recruited a team to help him achieve this goal — and they’re up for any challenge guests throw at them, whether it involves backcountry heli-skiing and steamy hot spa treatments to fine dining in a ski gondola. Of course not everyone sees eye-to-eye.
If you recall, Soul Pitt featured Elise on our Summer 2012 cover of Soul Pitt Quarterly. Congrats to the Diva Chef from Soul Pitt!
