Long weekends were made for long adventures. And wagons were made for road trips. We headed south to La Push WA from Vancouver BC for some surf, sun, and beach fires. The Pacific Northwest is truly a beautiful place, with it’s lush forests, towering Coast Douglas fir trees, foggy mornings, and those west coast sunsets. Among friends on the beaches of LA Push with ocean front camping, and enough driftwood to keep the fire burning all night, and with a couple cases of craft, crisp, clean Blonde from our friends at Postmark Brewing, cheers to seven day weekends!

headed East to find winter and essentially chase snow. Finding themselves in the quaint town of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. In-between snowstorms, 8ft high snowbanks, lobster traps, dark and stormies, and shovelling around snow, they found a week of sunshine exploring the urban side of East Coast on snowboards. Look forward to a full story in the next issue of Snowboard Canada Women’s Annual dropping next season! Here are a few words from Alex on the trip and you can check out more stories from our adventure on SBCWomen.com
“Nova Scotia – A backstage pass to the south shore. The best perk of visiting a town during it’s tourism off-season was having the whole town at our disposal. As the only out of towners, we got to hog all the locals to ourselves. The hospitality was truly 5 stars. Big thanks to NS Tourism
for the hand in getting us out here. We know this place is typically known for it’s epic summers, but we’re learning it throws a fierce winter, too.”
