Rick- that's a big crowd ;DLori- were you up there yourself or is this one of hubby's pics? I'm not generally ambitious enough to go to where there is more snow in winter ;D
Cohan, you guessed it - I swiped it from Stuart's backcountry ski trip pics from last week. ;D I'm afraid I'm pretty sloth-like in winter, as I've mentioned before, though I love visiting Panorama Ridge in summer!
Much rather go in summer myself...lol We did go up to Kootenay Plains once in mid-winter and it was lovely- including some time walking around on the frozen but bare river! But snowfall is moderate to low there, and no long stretch of dicey highway to get there..
Our Christmas trees are ready!
