For all you outdoor skating enthusiasts I would like to share a must do - Apex Mountain has the most charming outdoor skating loop that is absolutely worth the two hour drive from Kelowna. The loop is tucked away in the forest surrounded by beautiful snow covered treetops. Much to my surprise the handful of times I've been up we have been essentially the only people skating through this magical spot. There is an old school shack available where you are able to store your goods as well as sit and comfortably while you put on your skates. Hidden gem officially revealed.

We made sure to stop for pizza and flights of beer at Bad Tattoo brewing in Pentiction on our way to the hill. This trendy little gem is well worth the stop, what could be better than fresh authentic pizza and local craft beer? The Mediterranean pizza was actually the most delicious thing ever topped with basil roasted chicken, artichokes & tuscan chili sauce, I highly recommend ordering this if you are ever in the neighbourhood. 

We were lucky enough to enjoy some apres skate beverages and macaroons at the Hangover Haven with Ozzy, the Australian Shepard and his mama, Shawna. Their cabin was adorned with vintage skis, snowshoes & taxidermy. This quaint abode nestled into the snowy treetops was the perfect place to cozy up with my people. I can feel the warmth radiating just looking through these photos. I was definitely inspired by nature and the mountains this weekend. When venturing out into the woods it's very important to have the right mindset, this will allow you to appreciate all the beauty winter has to offer. Take a day and dedicate it to taking in the last of the snowy weather or whatever invigorates your soul.
