In January, 2018, a small crew from Campers Village headed for the hills – the foothills that is! – for a little cross-country ski getaway. We were fortunate to get perfect, sunny winter weather in both the Bragg Creek and Mount Shark areas.  

Our xc-ski expert Katherine was kind enough to share about why she loves cross-country skiing in the winter. “What I love about the mountains is the wildness,” Katherine says, “everything is so big and vast and it just goes on forever.”

Katherine was using the Salomon Aero 7 Skin cross-country skis which feature a unique artificial skin in the kick-zone to help with getting a great kick-grip without the need to use grip wax.

At the end of the day, Katherine takes a moment to relax and cooks up a delicious Yamnuska meal using the MSR WhisperLite stove.
