Grande Prairie Getaway: Ski, Shop, Eat, Repeat

Alberta’s North is filled with winter experiences you should know more about. Why? #SkiNorthAB with us this season, search the tag and use it to show off what you find!
Over the span of a few hours at Wapiti Nordic Ski Club in Grande Prairie, Breanna Gordon has managed to get snow down her back, up her front and all over her friends Lori Brough and Gillian Lockhart.
With a background as a fitness instructor and yoga teacher, the energetic mom of four is always finding something to climb, jump off or handstand on. Equally energetic but perhaps less acrobatically inclined, Lockhart and Brough egg her on, helping Gordon attempt a one-legged ski stand atop a trail marker post, and cheering on her handstand attempts. But when she breaks into a sprint on her snowshoes, spraying snow in all directions, all they can do is stand back and laugh.
