Behind every successful operation, there is a person with determination to see their dream and vision come to life. They rise to every challenge and with each storm they survive they are a little bit wiser and a little further along. From the outside it often looks easy but if you have ever tried your own business or worked in one, you will know the depth of commitment it takes to solve insurmountable problems and turn up, day after day, to do it again. This is a story of RJ (Bob) Bishop Jr’s dream. He bought into the vision and dedicated the past 50 years to making it come true.
We’ll never hear about those dark days when there was no cash or no snow but what we can see was his ability to overcome each problem resulting in the creation of one of the nicest family owned and operated ski & summer resorts in the country! Through his passion and dedication, he inspired all 5 of his children to share his passion for the sports, the Haliburton lifestyle and the opportunity to serve the families and visitors of Sir Sam’s. Bob & Noreen, Rob, Chris, JD, Angela & Steve all play a role in making Sir Sam’s about families and friends having fun outdoors.
Building on our 50 years of experience, the Bishop family looks forward to continuing to provide all our visitors and friends with a lasting and unforgettable family experience.
