Winter has come very, very early at Banff. Check out the webcams on their website and you’ll see a dusting of snow. It probably won’t last very long, but we love snow in August!
The True Color Films crew, including Mario Käppeli, Alvaro Vogel, Nicholas Wolken and of course Lisa Filzmoser, headed to Canada to film in the epic terrain of Revelstoke.
I’ve never been to a ski resort out of season – until now. I’m in Banff, Alberta – and it’s jawdroppingly gorgeous.
Construction on the new Le Scandinave Spa Whistler is now underway. The Spa will bring Scandinavian-style baths to Whistler-Blackcomb, and will be located one mile north of Whistler Village. Construction is scheduled to finish in the fall of this year.
A couple from Montreal spent nine days in the backcountry in British Columbia before the RCMP decided to launch a search.
The couple, Gilles Blackburn, 51, and his wife Marie-Josee Fortin, 44, were staying at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort in Golden, B.C. The couple were experienced skiers. They left on February 15 and got lost when they went out of bounds. They tried to find their way back leaving SOS signs behind them. The only food the couple had were two granola bars.
Head to Fernie, Canada and you’ll find a host of companies offering you the chance to get out of the resort and into the backcountry. Where heliboarding and multi-day catboarding trips might be out of your budget, a one day catboarding trip gives you the chance to get into the wild for a much more reasonable amount – about $350 CDN per person.
For the first time, Panorama Mountain Village in B.C. is offering savings for only 49 hours, with the lowest prices on ski-in/ski-out lodging, lift tickets, rentals, and Ontario air packages.
Fernie Alpine Resort maintains one of North America’s largest avalanche programs – a testament to its plentiful powder.
The MGT Snowboard camp crew sent us this write up of the two-day all girl’s camp they held at Grouse Mountain, North Vancouver at the weekend:
30cm – 40cm fell each night during this past weekend at Grouse Mountain in North Vancouver. Vancouver’s metamorphosis into a snow-cave resulted in a pillow party for what is usually strictly a terrain park camp.
MGT Snowboard Camp coaches Marie-France Roy, Leanne Pelosi, Raewyn Reid, Robin Van Gyn and Joanna Majcherkiewicz had campers throwing themselves off any feature producing some heavy bails and first time pillow and cliff experiences.
