Kelly Hopkins is back with blog post number two on how to survive the winter season as a new mom. In it, she tells us the essentials to take with you when trying to get your little one out for play time in the winter snow. Forget about packing up the entire house into one, small diaper bag. Kelly has a short list of the must-haves in her next post.
Kelly Hopkins is a familiar face around here - she's made Collingwood her home for the last 20 years and calls the hills of Blue Mountain her old stomping grounds. When she's not busy being a new mom to daughter Audrey, Kelly spends her spare time enjoying the outdoors with activities like skiing, hiking and running.
Leading up to March break, Kelly steps in as our latest guest blogger on The Barn. Her goal is to share the great experiences she's had at Blue and encourage new mom's to get outside. In her first entry, Kelly talks about tackling the cold and the hills after becoming a mom only 10 short months ago.
I did this interview about a month ago, and figured I couldn't drop it at a better time after I saw the new teaser for Nomis Outerwear's project On Our Grind. Not only has Danny Glibota been filming in Blue Mountain's Badlands Terrain Park with the Trash League crew, but he also managed to stack some clips with the Nomis team when they were in Ontario this winter. Read on and meet Danny G.
In the fall of 2013, members of Blue Mountain's Marketing Department had the privilege of spending the day with Gillian Golosky, a local skier with big dreams. Gillian has been training as a Freestyle Skier since she was nine years old. With the Winter Games bringing an increased focus on Freestyle Athletes, Gillian's sport is top of mind for many Canadians. In her own words, Gillian explains how her involvement in Alpine Sports has helped her grow into the competitor that she is today while helping to shape her Olympic-sized dreams for tomorrow.
Local athletes competing at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi are widely celebrated along the Escarpment and alpine racer Larisa Yurkiw is no exception. We caught up with her following her qualifying run in Altenmarkt, Austria last month that sealed the deal for her ticket to Russia.
