My son was born just shy of Valentine’s Day. The first article of clothing to adorn his body was a red knitted toque with a white heart on it, donated to the hospital by caring volunteers. His first experience of the world, besides utter shock I assume, was one of love. Warm, soft and cozy love.
Every March my clinic is full of people who have been overdoing it on the slopes. Rarely missing a day; skiing in the rain, boarding on ice or living the dream on epic pow days. I always ask them their number. They all know it. Usually somewhere between 80-90 days by March.

Winter brings a beautiful landscape just waiting to be discovered. Try these three snowshoe adventures for something new.

Winter is a trillion snowflakes and whispering trees on the crispest, quietest of nights. It’s steamy coffee against white-walled snowbanks, and January embers glowing against the cast iron of a wood stove in a log cabin deep in the woods.
