Kamloops, B.C. – At 7:00 am my alarm goes off, I hop out of bed, and peer out my hotel room window. It's grey and socked in. A thick layer of valley fog has settled down over Kamloops. No good can come from this, I think. Nevertheless, I ready myself for my Nordic ski adventure and hit the road to the Overlander Ski Club at the Stake Lake Nordic Ski Area, which is located approximately 25 kilometers south of Kamloops on Lac le Jeune Road.
Halfway there, like magic, I bust through the cloud layer – the classic inversion – and my spirits soar. Apparently, I'm wrong. Plenty of good, on many levels, is very close at hand.
