Learning to Ski Steeps with “Extremely Canadian”

This year myself and Spring at Pebbleshoo have set ourselves the goal of training and educating ourselves a lot more in regards to the activities we’re interested in.

Tantalust, Part IV: Risking Adventure

< Tantalust, Part III: Finding Jim I stirred awake. I could hear Spring outside, in the kitchen area of the Cabin, preparing breakfast.
