Between Christmas and New Year we spent a few days in Rossland with our friend Mark. I worked with Mark several years ago in the tech industry and we have kept in touch through the years.

Rossland is a beautiful little mountain town and it really grew on us during our time there. The big draws are Red Mountain in the winter and mountain biking in the summer. And of course evening growlers from the Rossland Beer Company at any time of year. By the time we left there was a well beaten path leading through the snow from Mark's front door to the brewery.

As for skiing there wasn't much snow on the ground but we explored the Old Glory area just enough to stretch our legs and work off some of that beer.

A glorious sunny day at NRC. In what became a pattern for the rest of the season it rained to 2200 metres shortly after this weekend. It was great skiing while it lasted.
