Thank goodness for these cool mornings or I’m not sure I would go running at all. I guess we’ll find out if the temperatures start to increase beyond 21 degrees. I’m wondering what other people do in the middle of summer – do you run only in the morning or at night when it cools? Do you even get drained by the heat? As soon as that sunlight hits my skin I want to stop running. I go from full tank to RED LIGHT ALMOST EMPTY within seconds.
Let’s hope the mornings stay cool so I won’t have to invest in a cool misting fan head strap contraption.

There’s something about people coming together that warms my heart. Michelle has just announced Little Mountain Art Studio is teaming up with Jodie Parker. Two incredible women making art with kids this summer. I love it.
Have you heard about this?…

This summer business has been operating for 52 years with 3 different owners. It continues to grow with consistently increasing sales. Numerous improvements have been made to the property including septic, water and underground power. Equipment has been well maintained and serviced. Ready for the 2017 summer season. Current owner with 22 years experience will assist with opening startup and provide one month transition training. Key employees are available to work with the new owner for the upcoming summer season. Why work year round when you can operate this very successful and well established business for 4 and a half months a year and take the rest of the year off?

Thanks, Rod, for the photos!
A suggestion for Fernie Alpine Resort suggestion box: Some way to refill a water bottle in the lineup at the lifts would be really helpful. It should be easy enough to do and the bikers would thank you for it. Whistler does it, maybe Fernie should too.
