And the winner is...

The process of coming back to Canada and finding a place to live for the winter was more difficult than I thought it was going to be.  I thought all along it was going to be Nelson, BC, but Mark didn't want to have the ski town costs, powder excitement and population.  So after much discussion (and a little debate), we finally settled on a place that's quiet, snowy, and mountainous, just not famous for skiing.

It's not near a hill with 1,000's of feet of vertical or huge regular dumps of powder, but it's an area where there is lots of moose on the mtn and a T-Bar.  Plus there is unexplored, probably decent backcountry skiing within short distances, in a 360 degree radius.  To go south, a passport is required.  We picked it because it's affordable and close to the ski hill where I was offered an opportunity to volunteer for ski patrol which I'm going to do.

Heck, they might even decide to pay me (for double what I was paid for almost 30 years ago).
We move in this week.


  1. Southern B.C.! It looks like it could be a 'warmer' place to live in Canada.

    T-bar... they are much like a rope. The last time I was with Mark and a rope, he broke a binding on his ski and had 'choice' words for the whole ordeal.

    Welcome home!

    1. Looks lovely Ciel. Hope to visit you sometime. Wishing you all the BEST for 2013! x, Tracy from across the BIg pond :-)

  2. Congrats on going back to work.....I'm still figuring out how not to do that.
    Enjoy the sliding and we're off to Laos tomorrow....
