Our Team

NLWS has a core group of people in the form of the Langen/Landry Families. Peter and Angelika Langen are the founders, assisted by their now grown children and their spouses. Adding to the team are a constant stream of dedicated volunteers which change every few months.

Angelika and Peter met at the Koeln Zoo in Germany where both worked at the time. Following Angelika’s parents and brothers she and Peter immigrated to Smithers BC in Canada. The initial idea of building a family operated Guest Ranch fell through due to bad economic timing, but Angelika & Peter continued with their part of the intended operation, offering horseback riding and horse kids camps to local and international markets. Their business Mountain View Adventures has been open since 1983 and has evolved with the ever-changing public needs.
