Okay..it can snow now. Well..maybe wait for a few days yet. Sunday September 25th was the last day of summer operation for Kicking Horse and also for Vagabond Lodge. We always finish off the season with lunch at the Eagle's Eye Restaurant at the top of the mountain. Then Patrick from Selkirk Sports joined me for my final ridge hike for the summer. It was a little cool but great hiking weather. The hike took us about 3 hours return.
Now it is time to get a break before Vagabond Lodge opens for ski season which should be about the first week of December.

It's a tradition I hope continues for a long time. Today was our second annual "top of the mountain picnic to end another summer." A group of friends from both Kicking Horse and Golden and area treked up to the top of T2 about 11.30 or so. We had a miserable day yesterday and even this morning it didn't look too promising but it ended up to be just a fabulous day. There was a little snow on the ground at the top and the mountains in every direction had a good dump overnight and yesterday. We had over 20 people who joined us and we even had a barbecue. It doesn't get much better. Now we can officially put the summer to rest and look ahead to the upcoming winter.
Vagabond Lodge will close starting September 28th until ski season which is usually the first weekend of December. I will keep you posted. It has been an awesome summer and very busy for us.
Here is a short video of our barbecue. Enjoy.
