What is a Yardsale?
This past week I learned a new definition for the word "yardsale".
Definition: When a skier wipes out and all their equipment... i.e. ski poles, skis, googles, go pro (to name a few things), get scattered across a large area.
If you've ever been skiing, then it's almost guaranteed that you've had the experience of at least one "yardsale". It's almost a rite of passage into this winter sport. An important milestone, just like learning how to carve :-)
Ha! You thought I was going to post a picture of a "yardsale" didn't you??
Luke taught me all about ski terms and skiing over our winter holiday in the mountains and I experienced my full share of "yardsales" (to you who might be interested).
We spent Christmas together in Jasper and then drove up into BC to spend New Years with some friends.
-35C was the lowest we felt and the warmest was -10C. Balaclavas were our favourite accessory and we drank plenty of caffeine to help power us through the cold days!
Our favourite stops were: Bear Paw Cafe (for their legendary rhubarb squares), Wicked Cup (sounds bad, but tastes good) and SnowDome Coffee (for their tasty turmeric lattes and pretty latte art).
After grabbing coffees and a rhubarb square for the road, we left for BC and further adventures.
Spotting wildlife along the roadside is always a highlight! Although we saw a few different types of wildlife, I'm still waiting to see my first wild moose and will be very happy when I do ;)
We drove through snow covered peaks and trees, till we arrived at the quaint town of Invermere.
The Halverson Family our hosts, treated us like royalty and fed us delicious meals!
We went skating on the lake one day.
Like all good things, our trip soon came to an end... and before we knew it we were on our way home! #UntilNextTime
