We get to the turn around and shut off the snowmobile. The stillness that follows is like music to my ears and I feel a tickle of pride knowing that I haven’t turned into the “sled neck” my friends were 
sure I would become when I bought the machine four years ago. It is still simply a necessary tool. 

Time: Approx. 45 mins - 1 hour
Distance: 5 km • Difficulty: Blue

During these uncertain times it’s important to carve out time for yourself. Getting outside and hitting the trails is a great way to take a mental break from your daily commitments and boost your energy. A breath of fresh air always feels good!

If you are pressed for time, an easily accessible area from town is the Ridgemont trail network, which is frequently groomed in the winter. You can do this fun loop on your bike or on foot.

A few years ago I borrowed a friend’s car for a road trip. As I wound my way up the Kootenay Pass, the only music available was a stack of unmarked, burned CDs jammed between the seats. As I cycled through those discs each new track was an adventure.

Known for its deep powder days and great skiing, there's another fun way to explore the snow and all its winter beauty - with snowshoes! The trees covered in snow, glistening as the sun hits their surface with only the sound of your snowshoes crunching above the snow through the seemingly sleeping life of nature surrounding you. Winter brings a beautiful landscape just waiting to be discovered. Try these three snowshoe adventures for something new.
