As I skier, I can get trapped in a box. I have my favourite hills—the ones I return to over and over whenever Ullr summons. Thankfully, as a Vancouverite, the hill I call my own is pretty good. From my house, I’ll...
Only a 50-minute drive from Vancouver and a 1.5-hour hike up a mountain, I was sliding on slick ice and crunching through frost-crusted snow. In October. For a good chunk of Canadians, this might not seem so impressive. Growing up in Alberta...
