Coldsmoke 2012 is shaping up to be a truly
homegrown Kootenay event. Three days of clinics, competitions and social
evenings will provide both experienced and debutant backcountry skiers and
snowboarders with fantastic learning opportunities and tons of fun. Now in its
6th year it offers a concentrated curriculum of powder enlightenment that is
difficult to find anywhere else.
I always go for the Full Monty option
($450), because the evening programs are well worth attending. Friday
night's opener held at Nelson's theatre features ski/snowboard films and draw
prizes. Saturday evening includes an apres ski party, the Buff-Eh dinner
provided by Whitewater's Fresh Tracks Cafe team, and a Kootenay Hootenanny with
bands, bonfires and games.
Plan to stay in Nelson and book your accommodation
in advance. Hotel
rooms are available as low as $49 per night. A free shuttle is available
from downtown to the resort. The drive from Vancouver is 8 - 10 hours so best to
book yourself free to head up on Thursday, Feb 23rd and return on Monday, Feb
27th. Consider staying an extra day or two to enjoy some of the Kootenay's
