I hope everyone had an amazing holidays, I sure did! I thought it was fitting since the Holiday’s just passed, for my first blog to be on my the most important gift I was given, the gift I gave to myself… A ski trip!!!!
One thing to know about me is my love for the outdoors, its an amazing love, the one that lasts a life time. I unfortunately have not gotten out of this busy growing city in quiet some time. So as a treat to myself, my friend and I decided to get away for two days and one cozy night.
We booked a lovely night at The Copper Point Resort in Invermere, British Colombia. I fell in love! This gorgeous town is made up of trees, snow and gorgeous boutiques and friendly strangers.
As we drove from Calgary, Alberta to Invermere, British Columbia. We faced lots of snow and beautiful views. The most amazing time spent in a car I have had in a wild, with great conversation and my amazing singing (which is a joke by the way) the trip was off to a great start!
We walked through the beautiful town of Invermere, visiting the many adorable shops. We bought hot chocolate and yummy maple donuts. I picked up an adorable scarf, ring and hat from a local consignment store. I’ve become obsessed with local, organic and small shop living. So this store screamed me:)
After an amazing dinner at Pippy’s Pizza we headed to Radium Hot Springs. A local treasure, a naturally founded hot springs in British Columbia. We came back to the hotel for a great nights sleep!
Woke up early, got dressed in all our skiing gear and headed to Fairmont Ski Hill. Took the very windy ride up the hill to the very top. Put on my ski boots, my big puffy winter coat, my moms over sized snow pants (because I couldn’t find mine). All of this just to be told by a very kind Samaritan, “Hey girls, you know that the bunny hill is the only run that is open?”.
Though our trip lead to a sad climax, we made the most of our little but amazing trip and took the most amazing drive home where we shared many laughs, mostly at ourselves for how dumb we looked when we realized how far we had come for nothing. But also for the many memories we had made!
It isn’t always about the destination but more so the journey it took to get their. Something we had to tell ourselves on our long 3 and 1/2 drive home to the flat prairies of Alberta.
