Where else would my first hike of the summer be to? Yes to T2 at Kicking Horse. June 16th and it was as usual beautiful.
We had a great vacation to Croatia do do some sailing which was a "once in a lifetime experience." With some friends, we spent a week sailing from Trogir to the islands of Hvar and Vis(our favourite).
Now back to work and Vagabond is open for the summer. A couple of things to report from Kicking Horse. The General Store which has been closed since last summer is now under new ownership and is open daily. Our guests love it because they can pick up a bottle of wine or some beer without having to drive to Golden.
Also Kicking Horse announced that Rudi's Bowl is being added to the controlled territory of the resort. Right now that means very little difference as skiers have been going up to the area anyways. But I suspect before the end of the summer they will also announce that it will be added to the resort. In other words, they will be doing avalanche control and will have ski patrols in that area. It will continue to be foot assess but there are suggestions a lift will eventually be put up to that area. It does offer a lot of more intermediate terrain. I am not in any hurry to have it gain lift asses but it will be inevitable.
Give us a call at 250 344 2622 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your stay.
