Silver Springs For A Skate

Silver Springs Elko BC
We took a trip up to Silver Springs in the fall and this weekend we decided to head back with our snowshoes and skates; both were very much necessary. The walk up the river trail is very slippery and our modern day snowshoes gripped well onto the ice; without snowshoes, as Leroy experienced, you slide down more than you climb. There’s a new silly invention – snowshoes for dogs!

The skating at Silver Springs is unreal. There is nothing but open ice to skate on. There were a few tricky parts because a few people went up there when it wasn’t solid and created pockets that make it really bumpy in spots…but it’s worth grabbing a bunch of friends, skates and hockey sticks for a good outdoor ice hockey game. Rod was ready for it but he was the only one. Sorry, Rod.

Driveway Figure Skating Routine – Gold Metal

Having recently found out about the upcoming Skate Carnival and with Fernie going from warm sloppy grossness to cold again, I decided to put a little figure skating routine together for myself on the driveway. I really impressed no one and I celebrated with a couple more hours sitting at my desk working.
