Wild West terrain reopens at Sunshine Village after 3 years

The Wild West opened to the public for the first time in 2003. It has since then rivaled Delirium Drive as one of the most extreme off-piste experiences in Canada and North America. Thanks to Patrick Thorne at InTheSnow.com for broadcasting the news that with March snowfalls, The Wild West has just reopened for the first time after 3 years. Please refer to the Sunshine Village website for safety requirements, including all needed safety gear. Conditions are monitored on a daily basis and you can call the hotline +1 (403) 762-6511 or follow @ssvsnowsafety on Twitter.

Consider buying real estate on the European slopes!

The dollar is strong, and lots of interesting development projects are taking place in the Old Continent. Check out some of the locations that Troy McMullen scouted across Switzerland, Austria and France. If we dare adding a personal favorite (though we are not real estate experts by any mean) we would not overlook Alagna and the MonterosaSki resort: this little hidden gem has exploded over the past five years!
