Yet another great way to spend an hour or two or even longer in the valley enjoying our special gifts. Right in our backyard are extensive winter outdoor opportunities for flatland cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and just plain walking in nature. On a sunny February day, we can easily take in our gorgeous vistas, blue skies, water and mountain views, not to mention numerous birds and other wildlife. Most areas are easy to get to in minutes, with no traffic, no air and noise pollution, no crowds or lineups. So often, like other Creston Valley outdoor activities, you can have it all to yourself or share it with just a few others who appreciate what we love about our area. Sure beats the gym on such a fine day! Want to enjoy all we have here in person?

To all my clients who moved to the Creston Valley from the prairies last year to enjoy our mild winters: honestly, this is not normal!
To all the skiers: you're welcome! This is the largest snowfall we've had in the last 20 years. And man, it's still coming! I think it was 1996 when we had the largest snowfall where we had to start shovelling roofs, etc.
I'm thinking I might have something to do with it. I bought some cross country skis but haven't had the bindings installed and picked up my new boots and poles that I purchased a week or so back. I haven't cross country skied for over 30 years, so this was to be the year I was to get the most out of our valley's great cross country opportunities. Now, I can't even get to the store to get the boots and bindings they set aside for me! If I still had my snowboard, I'd be thrilled, but watching the white stuff coming down heavy and steady today, I can only reminisce...
To those considering a move to the valley, rest assured this is very abnormal ! Still pretty beautiful though.
