A great day today. Temperatures are getting nice and warm and sunny skies. I had a real treat today. I went on a trail ride in the Blaeberry Valley today. It is the valley to the North of Golden and very historical. It was the original fur trading route through the rockies and was discovered in the early 1800's. A friend from Golden owns a trail riding company called Bear Corner Adventures. www.bearcornerb-b.com. BJ is a former warden in Yoho National Park and has been in operation here for about 10 years. He took me a 4 friends on a 3 hour ride along the Blaeberry River. The scenery is fabulous. He can do overnight trips up the Howse Pass. Here is a video I put together of our trip.
Sun came out at Kicking Horse after about a week of steady snow. Over 100 cms of powder. And now with the sunshine..it doesn't get much better. Road to Calgary via radium(1 hour longer) is finally open although the Transcanada isn't yet. Maybe tomorrow. We have a group coming in from Calgary for the weekend. Still some rooms for midweek. February hasn't got much left though. March is always great skiing here though. Give us a call toll free 1 866 944 2622
