Fall in the Curious Kootenays
The cooling winds of Fall bring a nice respite from the highs of summer here in the West Kootenays. The summer sun is just slightly magnetized at this altitude.
Animals we can see stocking up for the coming winter, as the daylight grows ever shorter with every Fall day.
Come see the magnificent BC countryside as it flourishes into full bloom, in its very prime – breathe in the richness of the air & taste the freedom.
You should, before we soon turn our attention to the upcoming snow-covered delights.
Seven Summits Poker Ride
This is the BC answer to the question of how to combine the
extreme exertion of riding 7 summits with the psychology &
strategy of a serious card game.
In fancy dress. With random prizes for best costume, best
joke & even for the heaviest bike…
Extreme poker on a mountain bike – what could be better?
The Gold Rush Days
Visit the Rossland Historical Mining Museum. Your visit to the
Rossland Museum will not be complete without a guided walking
tour into a restored section of the historic underground
workings of the once famous Le Roi gold mine.
Come find the Gold Fever Follies – a musical theatre based on
Rossland’s early mining history with original script, music
& songs. Pure fun for the whole family.
The Rossland Mountain Film Festival
The Rossland Mountain Film Festival is a four-day event in
November that takes place in Canada’s alpine city –
Aka “The Biggest Little Film Fest in Canada” – the focus of the
event is on local talent.
Film-makers, artists and new media workers showcase their
creations to the Kootenay regional audience.
The Colors of a BC Fall
Some trees have their own way of handling the oncoming winter
– they love to shift to the Colors of a BC Fall.
The trees love to drop the green charade & get stuck into some
exotic yellows & reds & browns & oranges…
The result in a landscape as sultry as in BC is nothing short
of spectacular. This is a must-see.
Kootenay Mushroom Season
The Kootenay Mushroom Season happens upon us surprisingly
Much to the delight of your avid mushroom hunter – there’s a lovely &
delicious variety to the wild edible mushrooms of British Columbia.
There are some rare beauties to taste.
