Few things will help get you through another slow, stuck-in-traffic commute than the memories of a few days stuck in the epic Kootenay Cold Smoke of the Powder Highway. Basically, everything about deep powder, like the stuff at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, is the exact opposite of a frustrating drive to work. The faster you try to go, the more face-shots you get. A crash is often a soft, welcome end to an out-of-control flail. No crusty boss here, and only a warm smile and cold beer await your arrival at the end of your journey. The best part is you get to do it all over again at the end of the ride. Just another joyful kind of daily grind on the Powder Highway.
