About Us

Mike and Franzi Shoniker have been locals in Nelson for more than 30 years! Avid skiers and outdoor recreationalists, they moved their young family to Nelson from Austria to enjoy everything Nelson has to offer – incredible skiing, fantastic hiking and a laid-back mountain culture.

Franzi grew up working in her family’s boutique hotel and restaurant in Austria. She has more than 40 years of experience in the hospitality industry, making the service at Bed & Breakfast Tirol unbeatable.

In the Winter, Mike tours the best ski resorts in BC and Alberta as a ski guide. For the past three decades, he has been the contractor and operator of Kokanee Creek Provincial Park, which boasts 168 forested campsites. Mike has a wealth of knowledge about regional parks, hiking trails, camping, fishing and the best ski resorts.
