We met in the middle, we soaked in the hot springs, we ate, we laughed, we relaxed, we snuggled, we skied and we enjoyed each other's company. It might have been 4 days late, but it was a totally fantastic valentine's long weekend.
Thank you again, to the wonderful husband and wife team down at Nipika Mountain Resort, just outside of Kootenay National Park. We had the most perfect ski conditions ever, a warm place to go learn something new about waxing, and a very welcoming atmosphere. We've been there twice and each time we totally felt welcome. What a wonderful facility, whether you're going there to just ski/bike/hike or canoe, or to stay in their accommodations as well. Go ahead and check them out next time you're looking for somewhere that will give you a real "Rockies" experience. They're open year round.
The trails were perfectly groomed at Nipika.
The dense forest is very beautiful and smells great,
you can see mountains all around you.
I guess I looked tired after skiing for the afternoon, because the lady who owns and operates the Inn we stayed at just looked at me and laughed and told Thor to take good care of me and not to let me drive. LOL
Had to stop on the way home close to Banff and capture this view,
even though it was extremely windy and cold.
