Falling snow and sunshine makes a glorious day to be a skier. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #xcskiing #nordicskiing #springskiing
A lull in the snowfall, time for a picture. It’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas up here. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #xcskiing #nordicskiing #springskiing

Last day of track setting until May. It snowed hard enough that some trails were re-set before noon. Love this place. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #xcskiing #nordicskiing #springskiing #okanaganlife
Long slow training day in fresh powder. My four hour loop must be easier than it felt: the junior team was doing a 100km ski today. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #xcskiing #nordicskiing #springskiing #okanaganlife #xc105
@crosscountryskimemes posted an image of spring skiing expectations and reality, mocking our tendency to show off the best bits. In honour of that post, I skied 30km of trails to find the worst trail sections to share: all three photos are from the lowest trail SilverQueen, between 1550m and 1600m elevation. The ‘dirt’ is actually tree bits. It started snowing right after, ending an eight day drought. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #nordicskiing #xcskiing #springskiing
National 30km and 50km titles will be won and lost right here, one year from today. It was great skiing today, despite having only 50% of the normal April snowpack. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #nordicskiing #xcskiing #springskiing #nordiqcanada
Celebrating an xc105 weekend with a trip to the dark side. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #xc105 #nordicskiing #xcskiing #springskiing (The xc105 weekend means your single area pass is upgraded for free to the entire 105km trail system. What are you doing tomorrow?)
Home again to ski off the hangover from the ski party of the year. Thanks @fiscrosscountry and @cdmskidefondqc for a great week in Québec City. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #okanaganlife #nordicskiing #xcskiing
Fresh dumps of 10cm the end of March!! #winterliveshere . . @nordiqcanada
Ski season complete. Had some good times, some less good times and some new experiences all of which I’m grateful for. Thank you to my friends, coaches and competitors for making it fun and thank you to my sponsors for your support and confidence! #winterliveshere
I think work might be a little over-rated!! Wish I was out exploring the trails of Kelowna Nordic Center and the rest of their xc ski network! 😀😀 Kt and I hit up this wonderful Nordic Center about 2 weeks ago to marvel in some spring weather! With avalanches happening even inbounds in our resorts it’s safe to say that xc might be where it’s at for the last couple weeks of the season!! • • • • • • • • • • #skibc #hellobc #ilovebc #beautifulbritishcolumbia #valhallakingdom #bigwhiteskiresort #britishcolumbiamagazine #explorebigwhite #kelowna #thompsonokanagan #wildernessculture #freshairexperience #tourismkelowna #explorekelowna #explorebc #explorecanada #adventure #bigwhite #wildernesscollective #kelownanow #crosscountryskiing #visitourokanagan #xc #getoutstayout #nordic #snowshoeing #wanderlust #skibigwhite #winterliveshere #exploreokanagan
Made the trip up to Big White this weekend to get both a taste of that spring sunshine as well as exploring their xc ski network! It sure turned out to be a scorcher up there! Even got a little sunburnt! The trails were groomed and surprisingly quick, definitely could have used some tracks, but still ended up getting in a 12.5km ski in! Thanks for the loop Biggie! 😀😀 • • • • • • • • • • #skibc #hellobc #ilovebc #beautifulbritishcolumbia #valhallakingdom #bigwhiteskiresort #britishcolumbiamagazine #explorebigwhite #kelowna #thompsonokanagan #wildernessculture #freshairexperience #tourismkelowna #explorekelowna #explorebc #explorecanada #adventure #bigwhite #wildernesscollective #kelownanow #crosscountryskiing #visitourokanagan #xc #getoutstayout #nordic #snowshoeing #wanderlust #skibigwhite #winterliveshere #exploreokanagan
Only three more weeks of the full 105km system, and then no set track until May. That means ski long and ski often, while we can. 37km (1x37km), MC 210m, HD 335m, TC 800m, trails repeated 0km. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #xc105 #nordicskiing #xcskiing
Sunshine, Fire Tower Coffee Shop and the new Gondola at @silverstarmtnresort !! The season is coming to a close but there’s some incredible spring skiing to be had here and everywhere! Get off the couch, do a little drive, ski your butt off!!! Happy Sunday funday y’all!😀😀 • • • • • • • • • • #skibc #hellobc #ilovebc #beautifulbritishcolumbia #valhallakingdom #mysovereign #britishcolumbiamagazine #explorevernon #bcparks #thompsonokanagan #wildernessculture #trueoutdoors #tourismvernon #thatsprettyvernon #explorebc #explorecanada #adventure #sovereignlake #wildernesscollective #vernonnow #crosscountryskiing #visitourokanagan #xc105 #getoutstayout #nordic #snowshoeing #wanderlust #skisilverstar #winterliveshere #exploreokanagan
Can’t believe how much the weather is changing now!! This shot was only 2 weeks ago while enjoying part of the the @sovereignlake and @silverstarmtnresort 105km network! Always amazing up there with some fresh snow!! I still love the fact that you can go here on an afternoon and still run into absolutely nobody!! Blissful solitude!! 😀😀 • • • • • • • • • • #skibc #hellobc #ilovebc #beautifulbritishcolumbia #valhallakingdom #mysovereign #britishcolumbiamagazine #explorevernon #bcparks #thompsonokanagan #wildernessculture #trueoutdoors #tourismvernon #thatsprettyvernon #explorebc #explorecanada #adventure #sovereignlake #wildernesscollective #vernonnow #crosscountryskiing #visitourokanagan #xc105 #getoutstayout #nordic #snowshoeing #wanderlust #skisilverstar #winterliveshere #exploreokanagan
Finding zen on Lower World Cup. The parking lot was half full this afternoon, but the trails were almost lonely. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #xcskiing #nordicskiing
So one of things that really stood out for me at Larch Hills Nordic Center was their really cool single track trails!! I’ve been to a few places for xc skiing and haven’t seen this before, it sure gave a feeling of remoteness on the trails! I will definitely be heading back to explore both track set trails and more backcountry trails!!!!! 😀😀 • • • • • • • • • • #xcski #hellobc #ilovebc #beautifulbritishcolumbia #valhallakingdom #larchhillsnordicski #britishcolumbiamagazine #explorevernon #bcparks #thompsonokanagan #wildernessculture #salmonarm #tourismvernon #discoverenderby #explorebc #explorecanada #adventure #northokanagan #wildernesscollective #vernonnow #crosscountryskiing #visitourokanagan #xcskiing #shuswaptourism #nordic #wanderlust #exploresalmonarm #winterliveshere #exploreokanagan
Incredible weekend of xc skiing across the Okanagan!! Thursday and Friday put in 43km between Sovereign Lake Nordic and SilverStar Nordic Systems! Needing a change I hit up Larch Hills Nordic Center Near Salmon Arm with KT! This is one of the forested backcountry trails in the lower half of their network! If you have a day to spend exploring on skis I would get out there! The trails are amazing!! We ended up putting in a 32.5km day here cause it was so awesome (and we may have got slightly lost)! 😀😀 • • • • • • • • • • #xcski #hellobc #ilovebc #beautifulbritishcolumbia #valhallakingdom #larchhillsnordicski #britishcolumbiamagazine #explorevernon #bcparks #thompsonokanagan #wildernessculture #salmonarm #tourismvernon #discoverenderby #explorebc #explorecanada #adventure #northokanagan #wildernesscollective #vernonnow #crosscountryskiing #visitourokanagan #xcskiing #getoutstayout #nordic #wanderlust #exploresalmonarm #winterliveshere #exploreokanagan
Celebrating my 105th ski day at #xc105 this season with a tour of the viewpoints. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #nordicskiing #xcskiing #okanaganlife
The Whakapapa Ski field on the slopes of Mount Ruapehu is a real winter playground, set to get even better with the completion of a new gondola later this year.⁣ ⁣ When it's covered in snow, it's easy to forget that you're skiing on an active volcano. It's only once all the snow has gone that you really see the true nature of this incredible mountain with it's ancient lava flows and amazing colours.⁣ ⁣ #ruapehu #visitruapehu #ourgreateroutdoors #RideTheMaunga #WinterLivesHere #CanonNZ#makeithomenz
Winter ain’t over yet kids!! A little dose of vitamin P and you’ll be hooked for life! SilverStar two weekends ago looked a little like this! I was up xc skiing last night and with our latest half foot of snow the runs look dynamite! So get out there and blast out some turns!! Have a kick ass Saturday everyone! • • • • • • • • • • #skibc #hellobc #ilovebc #beautifulbritishcolumbia #valhallakingdom #skicanada #britishcolumbiamagazine #explorevernon #travelbc #thompsonokanagan #wildernessculture #salomon #tourismvernon #thatsprettyvernon #explorebc #explorecanada #adventure #powder #visitourokanagan #vernonnow #downhillskiing #mymountain #alpineskiing #kelownanow #skiing #wanderlust #silverstar #winterliveshere #exploreokanagan

Who all got up to the hill today for some fresh turns? I worked today like a good tax paying citizen so I missed it but ended up with a 21km xc ski for the evening! What a beauty day out there! Reminded me of two weeks ago when we had the big dump of snow and I got to ski with my bro!! Hope everyone’s weekend plans are in full force and that y’all get out there!! • • • • • • • • • • #skibc #hellobc #ilovebc #beautifulbritishcolumbia #valhallakingdom #skicanada #britishcolumbiamagazine #explorevernon #travelbc #thompsonokanagan #wildernessculture #salomon #tourismvernon #thatsprettyvernon #explorebc #explorecanada #adventure #powder #visitourokanagan #vernonnow #downhillskiing #mymountain #alpineskiing #kelownanow #skiing #wanderlust #silverstar #winterliveshere #exploreokanagan
⁣After a day spent painting, cleaning and just generally tidying up at the NZ Alpine Club hut on the slopes of #mtruapehu , this was our reward - a beautiful sunset before retiring to the hut for a good feed and a peaceful night's sleep. Calm autumn nights on a mountain really are hard to beat.⁣ ⁣ #mountruapehu #ruapehu #visitruapehu #ourgreateroutdoors #whakapapa #newzealand #WinterLivesHere #MakeItHomeNZ

Spring has sprung! Okay, it is still -10, but it was a spectacular 100th ski day of the season. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #xcskiing #nordicskiing
Getting some zen time on the trails. Definitely a good week to find yourself some calming powder. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #nordicskiing #xcskiing
Id like to request a #Boltcamera by @cameracontrol and a sizable enough studio to operate in, please align my life to obtain these goals. Thank you in advance. Seen here operating for a @bear_mountain marketing project filmed by @temptmedia. #camerasandshit #mediagoon #tempttakeover #shotonred #cookeoptics #winterliveshere

The SnowFun 50 was our first annual point-to-pub 50km. We had sun, snow, and scenery finishing with some amazing beer and food at Long John’s. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #xc105 #nordicskiing #xcskiing #skisilverstar #backhandofgod #okanaganlife

The pain cave. Master’s intensity was 4x4’(4’) today. The scenery definitely helps. 5cm of fluffy snow overnight helps too. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #nordicskiing #xcskiing #okanaganlife #nottoooldforthis
Lots of great deals on #winterwear during our storewide clearance! Going on now, only at #snohaus ! #winterfashion #winterjacket #parka #ski #snowboard #winterwonderland #winterliveshere #longisland

Happy #presidentsday , everyone! Hope you’re enjoying (preferably on a ski mountain somewhere)! #snohaus #winterliveshere #winterwonderland #skiing #snowboarding #longisland
Best skate day so far this season! Just enough fluffy powder to float the downhills, light enough for great glide on the hidden corduroy for climbing. Magic day. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #nordicskiing #xcskiing
A spectacular day of backlit blowing snow while doing a #SnowFun50 course inspection. Love this place. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #okanaganlife #xcskiing #nordicskiing

It’s good to be home after two days at Western Canadian Championships. #mysovereign #winterliveshere
A stunning day on the trails. These are two of the potential #BeerCanBeiner stations for Wednesday. The cabin if the weather stays cold, and a tent on the trail if normal weather returns. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #nordicskiing #xcskiing
On a busy Saturday with multiple events, somehow the Zumas are peaceful. Six laps, seven other skiers seen, and lots of birdsong less than 1km from the stadium and a packed parking lot. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #xcskiing #nordicskiing
Hello white. Let it go, let it go 🌨 #snow #winter #pirineos #winterliveshere
Never too cold for a #siberianhusky . It was -32C today but my hubby and my husky (one of the eight) dragged me outdoors for a walk. And what a beautiful walk it turned out to be!

A grey day down in the valley. Maybe the best day of the season up here: -3, no wind, easy hard wax, and a little fresh snow to add sparkle. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #xcskiing #nordicskiing #okanaganlife
Sunday masters getting organized in the stadium. Better conditions here than we see in pictures from NorAms in Québec, junior worlds in Lahti, and the world cup in Otepäa. #mysovereign #winterliveshere #xcskiing #nordicskiing
Snow shoe adventure this morning! The sun was so nice!! @ashleypaull32 #mysovereign #winterliveshere #snowshoeing #sunshine #fun

Reminiscing about the amazing sunsets this week along the SilverStar Mountain Resort’s Nordic trail system!! We skated up TJ’s Corkscrew for a bit of a challenge and ended up catching that last bit of light!! We are back to snow now but what an incredible run of awesome sunsets above the cloudy valley!!😀😀 • • • • • • • • • • #skibc #hellobc #ilovebc #beautifulbritishcolumbia #valhallakingdom #mysovereign #britishcolumbiamagazine #explorevernon #bcparks #thompsonokanagan #wildernessculture #trueoutdoors #tourismvernon #thatsprettyvernon #explorebc #explorecanada #adventure #sovereignlake #wildernesscollective #vernonnow #crosscountryskiing #visitourokanagan #xc105 #getoutstayout #nordic #wanderlust #skisilverstar #winterliveshere #exploreokanagan
On Saturday I finally got to complete a challenge that I had given myself a few years ago...the goal was to ski the entire perimeter of both Sovereign Lake Nordic’s trails as well as SilverStar Mountain Resort’s Nordic trails and create a huge loop!!! The distance was 40.6km on classic skis and at the end of it all while we were headed back up Gold Mountain to return to @sovereignlake we were treated with some incredible color in the sky!! We made it back to the truck just as darkness fell!! What an amazing loop that is highly recommend if you have 5-6hrs to kill!!! Thanks for the 105 network guys!! @silverstarmtnresort 😀😀 • • • • • • • • • • #skibc #hellobc #ilovebc #beautifulbritishcolumbia #valhallakingdom #mysovereign #britishcolumbiamagazine #explorevernon #bcparks #thompsonokanagan #wildernessculture #trueoutdoors #tourismvernon #thatsprettyvernon #explorebc #explorecanada #adventure #sovereignlake #wildernesscollective #vernonnow #crosscountryskiing #visitourokanagan #xc105 #getoutstayout #nordic #snowshoeing #wanderlust #skisilverstar #winterliveshere #exploreokanagan
