The one thing I was told by absolutely everyone that lives in Alberta when I brag about how amazing it is to live here is that they aren’t jealous…they have the mountains. Well, today I discovered that, not only do I have great weather, a mild winter, a lake a few blocks from my house, wineries everywhere I turn, but I also have the mountains – heck, the frickin’ chair life – less than an hour away! And, unlike the National Parks, this place is actually designed FOR skiers. You can ski right up to your chalet or hotel. Fantastic!
I’m envisioning a great date night up BigWhite with tubing, ice skating and sleigh ride!
