My Ski Correspondent

When you see a fabulous deal, you have to jump on it, if you possibly can. The under¬†$200 flights to Kelowna were too good to pass up. And while I absolutely couldn’t get the time off work at spring break, my son could. (He has a fabulous boss!)

So, he went snowboarding in the mountains of British Columbia.

In an effort to include me (and the readers of, he’s shared some fun helmet-cam GoPro video that he shot.

He followed his friend down the mountain at Silver Star Ski Resort in Vernon. Not bad for a couple of novice snowboarders, and a helmet cam.

Thanks boys!

This clip is a little longer and shows more of the scenery at Silver Star Mountain Resort. It was taken by my older son, on a snowboard, as my youngest skis and blazes the trail.

Absolutely a fabulous hill. Great for the novice skier and beyond. Really great conditions for end of March. Top marks to Silver Star Mountain Resort, from my correspondent!

Ps. I will follow up soon with recommendations for hotels in the area and a few more of the fun photos he took.
