Winter in Dawson Creek
Being born and raised right here in good ole Dawson Creek , I have come to love all seasons. Winter means lots of sunshine and white sparkling snow. Well..Yes the odd Blizzard has to make it's way thru but those are the days I get everything done on my procrastination list and then have friends/family in for a comfort type meal. I always say if you are going to live in the NORTH...it is all about the "gear". If you are dressed for the temperature? you will enjoy the day. I'm an outdoors "type of Gal" so skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, horse chores and SHOVELLING are among my winter activities. I can hardly believe January is almost gone....February is a great month to get outside as the days are getting a little longer and we know that March is around the corner. So tonight is Friday night!! and our local Ski Club (5 min out of town on the prestigious Bear Mountain) offers night skiing 6-10:00 pm and "steak night". Parents can take their kids to the hill, go upstairs and dine in the chalet. Even if you don't ski or have kids that ski? EVERYONE IS WELCOME! I think it is a mixture of the friendly atmosphere, good food, watching the skiers come down the hill and the view of the City Lights that makes this a great way to spend a "Wintery Friday Night" in Dawson Creek.
