The Perfect Christmas Escape BC
Talk about a Christmas escape of heroic proportions. It must be, there was enough people laughing at me for exiting the freezing Nantucket shores to go further north in the dead of a North American winter.
Because you never know – would they, at sea level, get more snow than BC for the second season in 3 years?
Rather more epic than heroic now, though.
So,who’s laughing now – this BC powder is magnificent.
But, having made the grand journey by air from the eastern seaboard, and been granted the fantastic pleasure of entering Canada by road – the better to see into that which I was disappearing for a dream Christmas escape.
Yet, far from the madding crowds, & distanced from distressed shoppers, the mountains slowly rose before me – enticing in that way that only freshly-frosted peaks can be, especially when you’re coming from sea level.
Most of all, who can resist that sensual first sighting of pure white snow. Not I.
And wicked is the knowledge that the season is only just beginning. That the seasonal seduction has only just begun. Such flirting. The sheer joy of a true Christmas escape.

Warning: Christmas Escape Pitfalls
Maybe there are the many hazards, I hear you say. Periscopic rocks. Javelin-like saplings. Fallen trees. Stumps. Speed.
And there is also the slight problem of having to bear a smile only a plastic surgeon can remove.
But while staying at home may be safer, there’s always a good reason to come and play.
The joy of pure fun. Be the one having the laugh.
Don’t be the one that thinks you’re missing out on anything. Do not be sorry. Believe you won’t miss the banging Christmas escape.
For there’s always light at the end of the tunnel.
Book your escape. It mightn’t be a Christmas escape – but it is an escape.
Why not book it. Now.
