Canadian Snow Humour

By melanie jean juneau, published on Jan 9, 2014

As I sit by the wood stove, with the wind howling all around our old house, I am toasty warm. However our water pipes to the upstairs shower, toilet and laundry room have frozen for the fifth time this year. This has rarely happened in previous years. The temperature is -27 C with the wind chill. So naturally I want to talk about the weather like the good Canadian that I am because it is a proven fact that discussing the weather is a national pastime.

And yesterday, in the garden, the air snapped with anticipation as magic evolved in the form of gentle flakes of snow. Like an unexpected apparition—snow; out of the bosom of the air it came, silent, and soft, and slow. Big fluffy flakes danced and meandered about the garden in the form of tiny delicate clouds; like a veil from heaven, it rested in the atmosphere for just a fleeting moment before it got ... (more)

All I Wanted for Christmas Was Snowshoes

By Katherine Cobb, published on Feb 26, 2010

...to stay, free rental equipment and a drastically reduced lift ticket. I didn't have to think long. This was a golden opportunity, so I packed some gear and off I went.

I had never visited Colorado before, but after a few days of skiing, eating delicious food and trying something new — snowshoeing — I was mesmerized. The landscape was strikingly beautiful.

The snow was glorious too, of course. I spent my first 25 years living in California and cut my ski teeth on some pretty big mountains in Lake Tahoe. Vail's slopes were reminiscent of my early days and didn't disappoint, ... (more)
