Warm Up to Win­ter

Where Canadian Rockies - - EDITOR'S NOTE | CONTRIBUTORS - This Cal­gar­ian loves hav­ing the Cana­dian Rock­ies in her back­yard. Find her warm­ing up by the fire­place at the Elk & Oars­man Pub (p 80) in Banff af­ter a day of snow­board­ing (p 18). Af­ter 20 years in Can­more, Jen still feels lucky to live here. Her win­ter i

Lo­cals in the Cana­dian Rock­ies have an en­thu­si­asm for win­ter that I didn’t share when I first moved here. But a few win­ters in the moun­tains have changed my mind. This year I can gen­uinely say I’ve been wait­ing—rather im­pa­tiently— for the snow to fall. Cold weather means it’s time for ski­ing, ice skat­ing, dog sled­ding, snow­shoe­ing and more. This sea­son, I think I’ll try ice climb­ing with a guide. What will your next out­door ad­ven­ture be? Find in­spi­ra­tion in our ar­ti­cle on p 12 where we talk to ex­treme sports en­thu­si­ast Will Gadd, on p 18 where we share ski re­sort tips, and in our Ac­tiv­i­ties sec­tions that be­gin on p 46 and 105. We’ve also got moun­tain fash­ion cov­ered on p 16, and on p 24 we dish on our favourite char­cu­terie boards (plus wine pair­ings) at lo­cal restau­rants. Con­nect with us on Face­book, Twit­ter and In­sta­gram at where­rock­ies to share sto­ries and photos from your moun­tain ad­ven­tures this win­ter. Wel­come to the Cana­dian Rock­ies!
