Christmas Adventures: Peak of Christmas

Did I go to Grouse Mountain or step into a scene of a Christmas movie, that was the question I kept asking myself as I wandered through the Peak of Christmas. Whoever did the decorations for this, nailed it. As if the scenery up on Grouse Mountain isn’t amazing enough, the Peak of Christmas took it to a whole other level. It really looked like a scene of North Pole straight out of a movie. By far my favourite part was the Light Walk. I’m going to try to describe it but this does not even do it justice, it’s really something you just have to see for yourself. They decorated a path with all white lights. It was like walking through an enchanted forest. In some areas the lights were scattered and simple and in others you were surrounded by nothing but white lights.

For outdoor adventure junkies this time of the year can be a rather dark and gloomy pre-season phenomenon – which we all happen to share in common.  Therefore, in this shared time of darkness let me shed come light on the bright side of the calm before the snow. Snowshoes, skis, boards, skates and gear are all top of mind to all of us right about now and although we’re ready to rock the trails and the mountains…the snow has yet to ‘officially’ arrive.  You’ve already hit the pre-season clinics, the gear swaps, trained your body in pre –season bootcamps but still you wait. We all wait – for the green light that enough snow has finally landed to officially declare the new season a ‘go’.  The moment in time when we no longer wait and we can actually go play... ...
