The Alltrack Whistler Weekend Adventurer

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017
Mike and Stéphanie, winners of the Alltrack Weekend Contest arrive in snowy Whistler.

At Clarkdale Volkswagen, we love the VW Alltrack so much that last month, we decided to run an Alltrack photo caption contest.

Mike and Stéphanie won! They were chosen to be Clarkdale’s Alltrack Whistler Weekend Adventurers this past weekend. Their adventure involved picking up brand new VW Alltrack from Clarkdale on Friday afternoon, and then driving it up to Whistler for some on-the-house skiing and accommodation at Summit Lodge Boutique Hotel! Sounds pretty awesome, and according to the amazing photos and videos they took while they were there, it looked pretty awesome too. See below for what we’re talking about. Not only do Mike and Stéphanie have great taste in cars (their own car is a Golf Wagon), but they’re extremely talented to boot!

women staff at clarkdale volkswagen

We thought March 8th (International Women’s Day) would be a great time to introduce you to some of the awesome women working at Clarkdale Volkswagen.

The car industry is traditionally male-dominated, but that is quickly changing. The Clarkdale team has 20 female members working in all departments, from Sales to Service, Parts to Reception and Accounting to Finance. Each year our ratio of female-to-male employees grows, with more women vying for jobs in all areas of the car business. This is great news!

Meet three of Clarkdale’s leading ladies and hear them speak about what their jobs and Clarkdale Volkswagen mean to them.

Mk VII GTI VIP LAUNCH at Clarkdale Volkswagen

Saturday, June 28th, 2014


The Mk VII GTI took its official Vancouver bow on Wednesday June 18th at Clarkdale Volkswagen in front of a throng of GTI drivers and enthusiasts. The three Mk VII’s on display in our Service shop commanded much attention from the attendees, as did pristine examples of the previous six GTI generations that were also present in the Service Shop.


The newest incarnation of the venerable VW GTI was introduced by our Sales Manager, Trevor Scheidl, followed by a presentation of the car’s features by our Lease Manager and Brand Specialist, Adam Niblock. Rob Boznik, a Clarkdale Service Technician as well as racing instructor and multiple GTI owner, then presented the new GTI’s technical specifications and advancements while putting them in context of the previous six GTI generations, examples of which were conveniently located over his right shoulder. The presentations concluded with Jens Egger introducing Clarkdale’s newly-minted GTI Club (details here) and describing its first event, a track day at YPK Integrated Training Centre.

Dinner was provided by acclaimed Vancouver food truck, The Kaboom Box. Expectations were high, but the venison burgers, salmon “salmwiches”, poutine and a menu full of other items easily lived up to them. As people ate, they roamed around the Service shop, checking out the various GTIs and asking questions that the Service Techs were only too keen to answer. A GTI was even thrown up on a hoist for a better view of its nether regions, all the better for answering technical questions!

Overall, it was a great night. Thank you to all who came out and showed support for both Clarkdale and the new Mk VII GTI. This is an important car to us and we’re glad to see it’s important to many of you as well.
