Even the harbor is missing summer
We finally got a window to score a backyard gem we’ve been curious about for years. It did not disappoint.
“I'm looking to the sky to save me
Looking for a sign of life
Looking for something to help me burn out bright
I'm looking for a complication
Looking 'cause I'm tired of trying
Make my way back home
When I learn to fly high”

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? -Mary Oliver 📷: @steveshannonphoto
Growing up in Ontario, people always got upset when it snowed too much. Around here people seem to get upset when they see the sun too frequently. Relax and enjoy it 😎. 📸 @hardly_dangerous_fab
A well deserved muffin snack break after a grueling 15 minutes into this wicked path. .
If you’re travelling from the coast you may find yourself cruising through the Kootenay Pass. Here you will find a backcountry haven that is home to a vast amount of easily accessible ski touring and terrain. A great reminder that the journey is the reward, as seen by @jackiec4 #FindingAwesome

Our Ladies Sled Shred Camps are all about teaching women the skills to be more independent & have control over their sleds in the backcountry 👊💃
We are so incredibly stoked about our upcoming camp this Saturday! We currently have 2 spots left if you want to join us & a rad crew of ladies for a day full of shredding, laughs and gaining those skills to show the boys that we got this 💪💁♀️
Who doesn’t love abandoned buildings and clear starry skies?
✵ Ski touring has always intimidated me. Avalanches, unfamiliar terrain, hazards, the feeling of inadequacy. I didn’t ride my splitboard once last year, too afraid, always finding an excuse. But the last two weekends have completely changed my otherwise grim perspective, and suddenly I find myself in love. In love with fresh tracks, with the smell of burning wood in the stove, with climbing mountains in the winter to sip whisky at the top. Truly, in love with overcoming doubt and conjured fear. Where I’m going with this, I guess, is to encourage you not allow your own assumptions about something to dictate the way you live. To say “let’s do it” more and “what if” less. To believe in yourself. And that’s my motivation for the day - go play! ✵
We'll make a trail dog out of you even if it costs my ankles and a whole drawer load of sock hole repairs.
Winter explorations up the Kuskanax valley lead to nature's treasures. @nakusphotsprings
When the sky’s blue it’s go time. What a crazy tropical vacation we have been having!

Snowshoeing and hiking in winter conditions can be hazardous. If you are travelling through avalanche terrain, you and everyone in your group must be self-sufficient—carrying all the proper gear (transceiver, shovel, and probe) and have avalanche training. Familiarize yourself with #LeaveNoTrace
principles and @bc_adventuresmart
is a great resource to help you get informed before heading outdoors. Remember the three Ts—trip planning, training, and taking the essentials.
