Last week I had a chance to visit one of my favourite places in the world: the outdoor skating loop on Apex Mountain in the Okanagan Valley.
The loop meanders through the forest for about a kilometer. I always feel like I’ve entered an enchanted realm where I just have to skate my way through the world. This magical feeling usually comes to an abrupt end when I hit the slope on the way down, as I always inevitably crash into the snowbank (I’m quite good at skating; it’s the stopping that’s the problem).
But when the sun sets and the coloured lights begin to glimmer on the snow along the truth, well this truly is a magical place. So, for those of you who keep asking me how to find the Land of Een, this might be the next best thing!
