It doesn’t get better than Nordic skiing at Dawn Mountain

A local’s look at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort
Kicking Horse is known for many things – its title as ‘the Champagne Powder Capital of Canada’, its abundance of varied terrain, its-easy-to-get-to location, its laid back charm.

Snowmobiling Upper Holt
Whether we choose to enter the backcountry on foot, bike or motorized vehicle, we are accepting the risk that something could break down and leave us stranded.

Blowing the track off a snowmobile in the wrong place could make for a bad time, but luckily for me it couldn’t have happened in a better spot.
