After a sketchy start to the season for snow, it has come on with gangbusters in the week. As of today we have had about a metre(yard) of new snow in the past week and it is coming down hard now. Just what we needed to get through the Christmas rush. Unfortunately I am not able to enjoy the powder. December 13th I went for tumble and ended up breaking my collarbone. I will be out of action for at least a month to 6 weeks according to the early prognosis. I am not a happy camper. What's the expression about "playing hard"? It could have been worse.
We are gearing up for a family Christmas and will be closed until December 26th. We are looking forward to having our family and especially our two grandchildren spend some quality time with us.

Enjoy the holiday.
nWe are into the final few days before Kicking Horse Resort and Vagabond Lodge opens for another winter season. December 7 is the big day.
The big news regarding Kicking Horse is the addition to the resort of some new terrain. Click here for a link to their news release regarding the new terrain.
It is an area that I usually go into once a year. I have always gone with a experienced guide since it is not patrolled or has any avalanche control up to this year. Now with it being under the controlled area of the resort it will be monitored and controlled for avalanches.
It will still involve some hiking to get there so it is not going to be for everyone.
You don't need to be a skier to enjoy our area. Snowshoeing is out our back door at Vagabond and it is so nice to go for a walk in the wood. Video shows what the experience is like.
