Rossland, Skiing & Snowboarding
Red is a big mountain with a small town feel! I skied around Red Mountain on a bluebird day and sampled the diverse terrain. Red is a hidden jewel of the Kootenays with 3000 vertical feet of tree-skiing, wide open glades and fast groomers. Everyone is so friendly, their favorite colour is definitely red, and you will see that the views are truly unreal!

After a day of ripping down the sunny slopes at Red Mountain Resort near Rossland BC, I rolled into Rafters Lounge for an apres-ski pint. This place gets pumping and is full of stories from Red's 100 years of history! The people here love their skiing, love their apres and no dought love their mountain... and now you'll see why.

Vancouver, Sightseeing Tours
As part of the celebration of the one-year countdown festivities
for Vancouver 2010 Winter Games, I joined
Active Communities Vancouver Step Out Walk that explores the changing
skyline around Southeast False Creek and the Olympic and Paralympic
Village. During the beautiful 3km walk around False Creek, I spoke
with Olympic Silver Medalist Karen Magnussen and Olympian Darcy
Marquardt and Sabrina Kolker! This is a fantastic family walk and you
can feel the Winter Games excitement in the air... so come on out and
step it up!

Come for a mush! I headed into the cool little town of Fernie and took a ride
with Fernie Dog Sledding. The team of Alaskan Huskies take you on an
exciting outdoor adventure through the spectacular Elk Valley
wilderness near Fernie, British Columbia! You even get to try mushing! These dogs love to run and my favorite travel partner was Peggy... you'll see at the end of this vid!

Up at Fernie Alpine Resort, I finished a
day of great tree-skiing and then headed into the village for some apres ski
at the Griz Bar. There I ran into a local who tells me about the
Griz Legend that explains why Fernie gets its special brand of powder

I should also mention that the apres is so good up there I ended up passing out in a slopeside igloo at the end of the night!

I checked out some of the recently gladed tree-skiing at Fernie Alpine Resort which is tucked in the Canadian Rocky Mountains! This place has awesome terrain and a cool village! There are ridges and powder filled bowls or you can cruise with your family down the gentle groomed slopes. Anyway you look at it this place has a bit of something for everyone.

Nelson, Skiing & Snowboarding
I spent a morning with Whitewater Ski Patrol during an inbounds avalanche
control. These guys know their stuff and that lets Whitewater Winter Resort share all of its Kootenay powder with us. After bombing, a whole side of the mountain was opened for the
public to safely ski fresh powder!

And you'll see the perks for the ski patrol... the first face shots of the day!

I went from skiing fresh tracks to apres at Fresh Tracks in Whitewater Winter Resort! What a day.... I enjoyed the powder, people, food and drink at this awesome resort. At the end of the day, I hung out with locals and other visitors at the Fresh Tracks Cafe... I love the apres!

Fresh Tracks Cafe's healthy gourmet meals earned it the title of “Best Cafeteria Food” from Ski Canada magazine (2008). Plus the local brewery makes a nice
West Kootenay traditionally styled ale to top it off!
