Nolan rides into 2018

Oh my goodness, my kid on a board! Heart throooooooob! We’ve had his board for two seasons now I think, and this is the first time I’ve taken him to the hill, thanks to a friend mentioning to me that kids under a certain age are – FREE! The season before and even some of…

Mommy & Me Adventures: Summer 2017

Tie Lake with our good friend, Mah-Cole, as Nolan calls her, Climbing out at Wasootch, Johnston’s Canyon, outdoor parks and more! Another summer down, and our adventures have begun to change a little. I don’t have very many friends with kids who do the things Nolan and I do, so now that he is much…

Kristina Meets Squamish, BC: (Aug 9-15, 2017)

Day 1 Another amazing trip of 2017 for the books, although, it did not start out that way. I wouldn’t consider throwing up the whole way, from Calgary to Squamish to be. . . amazing! It started around Field, BC, where I had to get out, and take care of . . . my barfing….

Kristina’s Adventure: Takakkaw Falls July 30 2017

Remember when I said, Valley view was preparing me for something in two weeks? Well this was it! I saw this Waterfall for my first time, less than a month before I said “that’s my climbing goal and I will climb that one day”. I saw it on our way to Revelstoke, and thought – that…

A bit of Summer 2017

Talk about being behind in writing! After summer ended, things got crazy busy with work, school and time with my boy. Now to Re-cap . . a few trips from summer 2017! Summer was anything but dull. It was quite. . . unreal. It’s crazy to think that I grew up here and haven’t been…

Nolan’s Adventure: Ptarmigan Cirque, June 24, 2017

  It’s open for the season and we’re at it again! Ptarmigan Cirque has been good to Nolan and I, it’s definitely a special spot for us. Our most recent adventure there was another one I just have to share! I am so proud of my boy! ❤ The day started out with his wind…

Kristina’s Adventure: Big Sister, June 18 2017

I have come to realize that mountain plans change just as fast as they are planned. Especially here in Alberta. If you’re unfamiliar with Alberta, our weather is extremely bio-polar. You can have all four seasons in the span of an hour! I am not kidding! That makes packing for adventures interesting and sometimes frustrating….

Mommy & Me Adventures: Rawson Lake June 11, 2017

Another weekend with my boy, another adventure to get going on! Originally we had planned to go to Ptarmigan Cirque, but the highway was not opened yet. Thankfully, because I didn’t check before we left – oops, the person we were going with suggested Rawson Lake. The turn off was right there and they knew the…

Kristina’s first outdoor climb – May 2017

It was a mid week, quick decision, after an invite came my way to go out west and meet a small group for an outdoor climb and fun in the sun! I thought, hey, why not! I can leave work at 3, get my 7.5 hours in, they cant meet till 5 anyways, so that…

May Long Weekend – May 31, 2017

Hands down, best May Long . . . EVER! I don’t think I have ever done anything May Long. Growing up – I always had to work. I never hung out with people who wanted to actually camp or do much outdoorsy stuff, and I didn’t get my license until – later than a lot…

Nolan plays Soccer, Starting April 2017 (May 17, 2017)

I have always dreamed that one day I would be able to coach my own kid in soccer as my Dad had coached me for basically the whole time I played soccer growing up. From the time I started, through my teens and into women’s soccer. It was definitely weird when I didn’t have him…
