More Kootenay Love

I know I already told you why I love living in the Kootenays in this post, but I thought I’d share some fun stuff from this past weekend. First, it was amazingly beautiful all weekend – it reached about 25C on our deck – love it!  It’s definitely starting to feel like summer.  April 1st was closing day at Red Mountain Resort in Rossland, so they had a number of events going on called The Gathering. We went up on Sunday to do our last few turns *sniff*, watch the Slush Cup and check out the deck party. They had a retro theme going on and there were some pretty great outfits. With the sun shining, not a cloud in the sky, the place was pretty hopping (get it? “hopping”!!) It was a great way to spend Easter.  We literally get the best of both worlds – I went from snowboarding to sun tanning on my deck! Here are some pics and a little video I put together of the Slush Cup. Hope you all enjoyed your weekend and now it’s back to the grind!
