It's time to play catch up. We actually went away for a vacation for a couple weeks and now its time to figure out what is going on here at Vagabond Lodge. Kicking Horse is having a "Sneak Preview" this coming weekend December 4/5 and then will close for a few days and then will open for the season on December 12. We had quite a dump of snow last week. The resort received over 80 cms in a week. But then it ended up raining at the lower elevation for about a day which wasn't great for an early opening. But better to have the rain now than in January or February. But don't worry there is still some great snow. This footage is from some friends who went to the top of Rudi's Run which is just outside the ski area boundary on Saturday(just a few days ago). As you can see there is a lot of snow and they were able to ski to the bottom. And it looks like more snow throughout the next week. So it is time.
Ken along with his wife Lori are the owners and operators of Vagabond Lodge at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.
