What is a Via Ferrata you ask? It is one of those walks that you have seen so many times on photos on the internet. The photos where people call this hike the most dangerous hike in the world or the craziest trail in the world. We always wondered what these people were thinking walking along cliffs until we realized that they were simply doing a Via Ferrata. A Via Ferrata is a lot like rock climbing but you don’t have to have any technical skill or training. If you know how to attach a caribbiner to a steal cable and climb a ladder, you can do a Via Feratta.

It had been years since I had taken the train in Canada. I don’t even think that Dave and I have ever taken the train together. You see as Canadians, we love to drive. Canadians have no problem taking a road trip for 5 or 6 hours to get somewhere.
We love to snowboard. It is the best way to pass the long winters. It actually makes the cold weather quite enjoyable. There is nothing like racing down the hill on a sunny day. One of our favorite mini holiday destinations is Mont Tremblant. There is just enough adventure mixed in with the decadence of luxury hotels, fine wine and great food.
