Spring is in the air, which is always a welcome feeling. The days are longer, you can feel the warmth of the sun as it appears more often, and best of all, we get spring skiing!
Slow travel is inherently green and helps support sustainable travel. Staying in one place for a long period of time instead of continual travel, and cooking with local ingredients reduces our carbon footprint because any way we look at it, travel of any kind is carbon producing and we should attempt to minimize our carbon footprint. Even something as simple carrying a reusable water flask and a hot/cold cup is an important practice.
Celebrate Your Body
If I asked you to stand in front of a full-length mirror and state three things you liked about your body what would happen? Could you do it? Would you be pulled to notice what you do not like and struggle to compliment yourself?
Women in Sport
The great thing about sport, is that anyone and everyone can participate. Choose your sport, choose your day, and choose your gang.
Supporting Women Through Travel
Travel can be a powerful tool. It can expand the mind, satisfies the need for wonderlust and be an empowering experience for anyone, including women. My mother travelled by herself to Europe aboard the Queen Mary back in 1952 and again in 1955 with me at six months old. That was not the norm of the time.
Is Love All You Need?
I have a pair of shoes with “love is all you need” written on the soles. I used to wholeheartedly subscribe to this idea. I thought love would conquer all and get me through anything no matter what. While I still fully believe in the benefits of love, I have reframed the concept of “all you need” to include a few other important key ingredients because love is not enough.
February is a special month with two days dedicated to love. The Western version of Valentine’s Day resulted from Chaucer in the Middle Ages. The Western version of Family Day resulted from the provincial governments of Alberta and BC giving a day off to all the workers and students in their respective provinces.
Investing in People
The Snow School is all about creating relationships, and there is no better month to talk about relationships than February.

Chinese New Year
We have celebrated Chinese New Year with our dear friends and enjoyed dishes with lucky meanings for many years. The year before the pandemic we were lucky to be in Asia for Chinese New Year.
Grace and Grit
We can do hard things. At this time of year so many of us look ahead to how we want to live our lives, what the best version of ourselves looks like, and the new adventures we want to take on. There is a collective hope when people talk about going to new gym classes, making goals at the ski hill, a desire to learn a new skill, or making new friends.
