Pure, simple & real..Deep

They don't call it "Coldsmoke" for nothing.

Although its been a little dry this past week have no fear, the Kootenay Coldsmoke Powder Fest never disappoints. In the two years that we have been a sponsor of the event it has dumped each time and I have a feeling this year will be no different. Last years event saw 62cm of pow fall throughout the three days, so much snow that it made the ROAM Rando Rally even more difficult than normal but it was a boon for the Valhalla Pure Powder Keg Slopestyle event as the landings were fluffy soft.

Check out more of the photos like the ones you see below from last years event,... give a click here.






The year before last was incredibly cold and saw sunny skies for the first two days but once again the snow was delivered just in time. It started puking Sunday morning and continued all day at a feverish pace, it didn't take much given the deep freeze temps as all the pow fell as true Kootenay Coldsmoke, light and fluffy. The following day (post festival) the snow kept coming and the resort and backcountry skiing was pretty amazing. Check out pics from the event here and relive it all over again.

Still thinking about attending? Give the Arc'teryx video a watch to see what you'll be missing if you don't attend.

If you need more info it can all be found on the Coldsmoke web site, check in out here and get registering.

"Loved the ski hill. Older chair lifts but they move you and the runs are the perfect length. Lots of tree/glade skiing, fabulous snow, scenery is beautiful. Fresh Tracks Cafe in the lodge has some of the best ski hill food we've had. A hidden gem as it is tucked away in BC. - Sunny West Kelowna"
