My Experience at the SheJumps Alpine Finishing School

The long, cold, beautiful winter of 2016/17 was coming to a close. It was early April and I was in the process of putting my skis away for the season, when I got the invitation to join a group of ladies at the all women’s SheJumps Alpine Finishing School sponsored by Arc’teryx. This would entail one full week at the fly-in Selkirk Lodge, fully catered meals and the privilege of learning advanced alpine skills from some of the...

A beautiful place to enjoy the backcountry without having to give up the...

Sunwolf Cabins Review

Bottom Line There are fewer things better than staying in a cozy cabin tucked away in the forest, somewhere you can disconnect and unplug from the outside world. We found this when we stayed at Sunwolf Cabins. Only a few minutes down the Squamish Valley Road, the Sunwolf cabins are nestled in the trees right along the banks of the Cheakamus River. Even with it’s close proximity to Squamish and Brackendale, as soon as you drive in you...
