Bittersweet.

Hey there, Snow finally rolled in last week and we got a few feet of snow…at the end of the season of course.  Climate change, am I right?  My last day working at the mountain was the 7th and it was bittersweet. There was new snow, I just bought a new pair of skis, it…

Another Town, Another View

Once again, I fail at keeping this blog updated. I have a challenge for myself for this month, that challenge is to write four posts this month. I have some lined up so I should be able to meet this challenge. The season is ending and I have some time between the ski season and…

For all The Haters…

1 Day Down, Many to Go!!

Hey there, It has been awhile since I have written a blog post and I apologize for that.  I’ve been busy trying to get settled back in to mountain life, but also trying to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible while I am not working. Yesterday I was able to hit the slopes for…

Oh Canada!

Hey there, I told you a little bit about myself when I first started this blog.  That was a few months ago, but I have not  told you how I became so appreciative of the outdoors and what really inspired me to do the things I do. So here it goes… I grew up going…
