Wapta Falls Hike or Snowshoe in Winter

In the winter a Wapta Falls hike or snowshoe makes for a delightful half day outing. It’s a longer hike in the winter since you basically start from the Trans-Canada Highway, so you must add a few kilometres to reach the summer trailhead. If you’re staying in the Field – Golden corridor, or you have a few hours to spare while you’re driving between Golden and Calgary, I would encourage you to do the hike.  We opted for snowshoes on the Wapta Falls hike but even with as much snow as you see in th...

3 Amazing Rocky Mountain Lodges You’ll Want to Visit

Are you looking for a winter getaway – one that offers three different lodge experiences – all set against a Rocky Mountain backdrop? Last weekend I had such a getaway.

Two nights in each lodge would be ideal – or a couple of three night stays would be even better so you could really relax. But who’s complaining? Three nights in the mountains at beautiful lodges is definitely a treat. John an...
