Big Red Catskiing Adventures in Rossland, British Columbia is where you
find powder! With 18,900 acres of some of the best tree skiing and
glades in the world, you are in for some fun. Fresh tracks, deep
powder, and no lines… need I say more? Check out Big Red Cats
for more powder info!
The town of Rossland
, in the Kootenay Rockies of BC, is all about lifestyle. You can hit Red Mountain
and Big Red Cats
for amazing skiing and riding. No lines at these places, just powder
and smiling faces. The area is rich with history and you really start
to feel a connection with mountains when you spend some time here. The
locals say “a big mountain with a small town feel” and I agree. Oh, and
did I mention they like to have a good time? See this video that shows Winter Carnival
in Rossland and some others about hitting the Kootenay Rockies Region

Chase, Wildlife Tours

The Adams River sockeye run is known around the
world as a miracle of nature. Sockeye salmon that have lived for four
years in the Pacific Ocean make an epic 400km journey back to the
streams where they where born. Their bodies change colour from
silver-blue to bright red as they reach the spawning grounds. Many are
caught or die along the way, but astonishing numbers reach their
destination. How many are expected to make it back to the Adams River
in 2010? More then 2 million!
So make sure to check out the
"Salute to the Sockeye Festival" in Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park
near Chase, BC in October to view the incredible wildlife spectacle.
You may even spot a black bear having a salmon lunch! More videos at: http://chriswheeler.ca

Tofino, Surfing & Watersports
Headed up to Tofino, BC on Vancouver Island to escape life's
worries and enjoy the surf. The Ocean is a healer, and there is nowhere
better in Canada then Tofino to relax on the beaches and lose yourself
in the surf.

Kelowna, Boating & Sailing
During a trip through the Thompson Okanagan in British Columbia,
I took the jet boat for a rip on Lake Okanagan. It's a great summer
time place to go boating and make a splash!

Vancouver, Surfing & Watersports
Windsurfing in Vancouver, British Columbia! When the wind picks up, Vancouver is a great place to hit the water for a sail or windsurf... and that is exactly what I did on a windy fall day at the end of September! I must admit there is nothing like strapping the board to your car roof rack, driving to Jericho Beach, and ripping across the Ocean waters of Burrard Inlet looking at the amazing views of Vancouver and the North Shore Mountains. Talk about having it all... and in a couple of months we will be skiing too! Beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia has it all!
Tip: If you don't have your own gear... no worries!
Windsure Adventure Watersports by the Jericho Sailing Centre rents windsurfers or even a paddle boards!
