In my neck of the woods, winter doesn’t mean snow and ice and blizzards. It means rain and rain and rain. So, like a kid on a snow day, I get really excited about a few sparkly flakes.
And that, my friends, is why I love the mountains. Especially trudging from frozen lake to frozen lake on snowshoes, my absolute favourite winter workout.
It’s a lot like hiking. Except the bears are hibernating so you’re not as worried about being charged by one (I never want to experience that again).
But really, I’m just in it for the après.
Then again, aren’t we all into winter sports for the après?
He’d say yes.

P.P.S. If you’re looking to beat the January blues in Vancouver, I’ve compiled a few ideas for ya.
Apres is the best; there is nothing like a tributary drink with rosy cheeks from a day (or 1/2 days) workout :)
love the plaid… and the dog.
btw here’s pics from my trip to the snow – http://simplystylishmom.com/2012/01/09/new-years-resolutions-relax-and-enjoy-the-moment/
question for you – does this mean doggies are welcomed on the whistler snowshoe trails?
Can’t wait to head up there again. Apres are great, but hitting the hot tub after is the best.
Shelley — I’m all about the 1/2 day workout! I can never, ever get an early start.
Anna — Those are too, too cute!
Liv — Ummm… dogs definitely aren’t allowed on the cross country trails, not sure about the groomed trails. They are allowed up at Cypress though!
shout out to LL Cool Lodge.
I just bought a pair of these Cougar Boots! I want to tell the world!!!!!!!!!
(Then I went into my google reader to see who else has blogged about them…i’m a geek!)
JK — I refuse to stay anywhere else!
Shannon — How much do you love them?!?! SO great in the snow!
