Mt. Assiniboine is a mountain paradise! I recently flew in with friends on a bluebird day. The fun began on our flight in...all we could see for miles and miles was snow capped mountains sparkling in the spring sunshine.When we landed and I stepped out of the chopper the beauty of the area took my breath away. We were immediately welcomed into our "home away from home" by our awesome hosts, Claude, Andre and Annick. The next 3 days we spent x-country skiing, snow-shoeing and playing outside in the spring sunshine. Late in the afternoon we headed back to the lodge for yummy snacks and a cold beer on the lodge porch with our hosts and the other guests. The food was scrumptious! In the evenings we played games and chatted by the fire until it was time to snuggle under our duvets in our cozy cabin. I was blown away by the variety of ski terrain and activities available at the lodge. As well as skiing, we snow showed, went for a moonlight ski, and some of the kids even went ice fishing. Thanks to our hosts and the lodge staff for making us all feel so welcome! I can't wait to go back with my whole family!
