Red Joan – Jennie Rooney

Inside the Whale

You know, we don’t think of what we do as a job, it really is a way of life.

Take this winter so far as an example. We have had so many great guests already that we are excited to see what the second half of the ski season will bring! One guest who was here recently was the author and newly qualified powder skier, Jennie Rooney.  Her third book called Red Joan is about to be released.

We’ve been listening to Jennie’s first book called Inside the Whale and have enjoyed it while driving down to the States and back, so we are looking forward to getting a copy of her new one. Below is a You Tube promotional video that will hopefully whet your appetite.

UPDATE: Jenny has been featured in the UK’s national newspaper, The Independent!

Pat Luders, Bronze Sculptures


We had a fantastic guest in the other day called Pat Luders who creates works of art in bronze. In her own words:

“Sculpting portraits in bronze became her chosen pursuit, perhaps because this area of art combined her love and appreciation of people, nurtured in her nursing career, with her love of using her hands to create. The ancient art of lost wax bronze casting process was complex and exciting to learn. She felt very fortunate to be at Red Deer College which had wonderful faculty, small classes and great casting facilities which have now been thoroughly modernized.”

Pat currently has an exhibition at the Arts Station in Fernie that is definitely worth going to see while you’re here!

Morning Jolt!

Coffee Beans

New for this winter, we have added a Tassimo coffee machine to the Breakfast room. If you’re an early bird you can grab yourself a coffee to start your day without waiting for breakfast to be served! We have also installed a water machine so you can fill your bottles before you go out in the morning.

We are very keen on recycling, and we ensure that our Tassimo cartons are all sent for recycling.

Walking in the Snow

A photo of Cath walking in the snow a week ago. After an epic weekend last weekend it’ll be snowing again this week. At the moment is predicting 20cm of snow before Wednesday! Looks like it’s time to get out and see what the hill has to offer; and because it’s the quiet time before Christmas, the lifts are going to be empty!
