The Best Kept Secret – Red Mountain, BC

The town of Rossland isn’t close to the TransCanada. In fact, it’s even a ways off the secondary Crowsnest highway. It’s not close to a major population center, nor is it easily accessed by air. What all this means is that even during the peak Christmas season, you can often find yourself skiing in the […]

Destination Wedding on a Budget

What’s the average cost of a wedding nowadays? Judging by hearsay evidence and online articles, couples are now spending $30,000 on one day of festivities. Apparently everyone getting married is super rich or doesn’t mind massive debt. Do wedding venues offer financing? Anyway, we’re not rich, nor do we care about weddings that much, so […]

Icy Weekend Skiing in Jay Peak – Vermont, US

4 skiers and 1 boarder looking for snow at Jay Peak, Vermont. As you might notice, the snow was just a dusting above a hard, thin layer of ice. We normally spend most of a ski trip in the glades but with the snow being as scarce as it was we were having fun just […]

Winter is almost over, so I feel it is time to wrap up our skiing blog series. Today, I want to pay an ode to Mont Tremblant Quebec. Whatever Quebec tourism may say, skiing in Quebec is often not very good. It’s among the best you can get within driving distance of Toronto, but it’s still 8 […]

My Canada is a Winter Paradise – Whistler Blackcomb

I was recently tagged by Karin from K and K Adventures  to write about what is “My Canada”. Since we are halfway through winter I want to explore what one might do in Canada when it is -15 degrees outside.  I am also passing on the torch to Meredith Bratland, Always Twirling and a fellow Russian emigre Maria to […]

Ski the 2nd Highest Vertical in the World – Zermatt, Switzerland

When Jonathan brought me to ski in Zermatt Switzerland I had no idea that we would ski the whole day around the Toblerone. Excuse my ignorance, but until that day I had no idea that Matterhorn was the logo of Toblerone and that it is located in Zermatt. Cars are not allowed in the Zermatt ski […]
