A wild and crazy year for Victoria

VICTORIA, BC—2008 was a wild and crazy year for tourism in general, and Victoria in particular.  That was one of the topics of discussion at the Third Annual Tourism Breakfast, hosted by Chemistry Consulting Group at the The Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort on Feb. 17.  Speakers included Rod Harris, CEO, Tourism BC, Frank Bourree, principal, Chemistry Consulting Group Inc., Robert Palmer, manager  public relations for WestJet and Rob Gialloreto, CEO, Tourism Victoria.


Mt. Engadine installs generator to save power

KANANASKIS, AB—Mount Engadine Lodge has taken the next step in its ongoing efforts to be as environmentally aware as possible. Last month, they installed a battery bank in their generator shack, and along with a set of inverters, this allows the system to switch over to battery power at times when the lodge is not using peak power. Located in Kananaskis Country, Alberta the boutique lodge can accommodate up to 24 guests.


Wrangling the Chute at Kicking Horse

GOLDEN, BC—Kicking Horse Mountain Resort held its 1st Annual Wrangle the Chute February 7th and 8th, and it went off without a hitch!  Top skiers and snowboarders travelled from near and far to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort for the ultimate showdown off the chutes of CPR Ridge. The resort’s famously treacherous chutes proved little challenge for the athletes who dropped massive cliffs, maneuvered through tight terrain, and threw down some style at the finish line jump; although the bucking bronco gave them a run for the money.
