It’s not every day someone heads to the middle of B.C. to experience Fort St. James and a ski hill with soul, aka, @MurrayRidge. But WinterFest is happening through February and that made us want to check it out, so SnowSeekers dispatched Smithers-based photographer Marty Clemens to learn what this festival is all about.
“A whole lot of soul,” is what I found when I first went to Murray Ridge and the community of the Fort. Every year they celebrate winter with a fun-for-all festival that includes curling and skijoring, which the Wall Street Journal describes as the “wildest winter sport you’ve never heard of.”
