having a bucket list and fighting hibernation in Canada

Wake me up in the summer now.

It’s that time of year. When things get cold and I stay in bed just a little bit longer every day.


I look out my window instead of opening my door, and I count down the days until the sun’s warmth will heat me up again.


Why do I do that? Sure, I may need a few more layers to bundle up to brave the cold, but there are some seriously amazing activities that we can do in this chilly season. Snowshoeing, skating, hiking, (even biking!) running, riding, the list goes on.

As I march forward, braving the (not even) freezing temperatures, I realize I am spoiled. I grew up in minus 30 degrees Celsius, chipping away the ice on my car and here I am in Vancouver – timid of a little rain and snow.

I’ve realized how silly I am and I’ve come up with a bucket list of incredible things to experience in these north shore mountains this winter. Journey with me on the blog, or give me a call and join. Why not?!

My first rip down the hill this season caused a little rib injury. (It’s all good, i’m already feeling better!) And a bunch of us ladies have formed a wolf pack of female riders, with a goal of making monday nights our shredding spot on Mount Seymour. (Ride by donation for breast cancer – neato!)


Even though there was only one chair open our first day at Cypress (and despite the wipe out) it was a phenomenal introduction to fighting hibernation this year. I look forward to sharing all of my stories from our babely crew of ladies as we adventure off into the icy cold west coast mountains this season.

Challenge yourself to open your door and brave the brisk temperatures. Make sure you have plenty of tea (or mulled wine) and maybe someone special to curl up to when you get back.


Fight the hibernation. Do it for the endorphins. Do it for the photos.
