When in Revelstoke and you feel like you need a rejuvenating. Go out to the Halcyon Healing Springs on the way to Nakusp, a short drive from Revelstoke,B.C. The springs are perfect after a day of riding. Still alot of snow in town as Kahea provides.

OK the snow is here,early morning at the resort was good...Did a few runs in the GUT that was deep,the trees are always the place to be in REVY though,so we ventured in and found some lines of our own that made us grin like kids! it still snowing and starting to look like the old photos of Revy. .....Pretty bummed that the old REVELSTOKE sign is not there all lite up anymore with the trainings running by.

Woke up this morning to catch a flight and couldnt get five minutes out of town at 4:00am. A big rig was stuck in the snow right in an avalanche path. So we sat in the car for hours until being advised to turn around.The road crews still have to BOMB the roadside and then do a cleanup,so even more hours...so what do we do? its still puking on the hill, had to change our flight but get this cant get out till december 31 everything is sold out or cancelled,rebooked from the previous days of delays....who knows if i even have a job when i get back?...WEIRD AND HERE's A PHOTO OF THE STUFF THAT CAUSED ALL THIS BUT ALSO WHY WE CAME UP HERE IN THE FIRST PLACE!! so pretty yet so powerful

Okay so we had a down day to rest the legs and decided to head on out to the beautiful Banff Springs hotel. Let me say this place is so incrediable,take your girl there and watch her smile! although it was again colder than you could imagine at a warm -30c there were still a bunch of people cruising around town. cant wait to get back to rainy Hawaii and jump in the water. Oh yeah here's a shot of Rogers Pass one of the deadliest mountain passes there are.
