In Pictures: Spirit Fest dog sledding and snowshoeing
Here are some Spirit Festival 2014 photos of the dog sled and starlight snowshoeing events that somehow slipped between the cracks last week.
Eric Marsden of Revelstoke Dogsled Adventures offered free dog sled rides at the Kelly’s Bob Cat yard on Nichol Road on Tuesday, February 4.
“It was a very brisk day, but that didn’t stop the event from drawing a healthy group of participants,” said photographer Jason Portras
And then, last weekend, Parks Canada offered its first-ever Starlight Snowshoe at the historic Nels Nelsen site in Mount Revelstoke National Park on Sunday, February 9.
About 90 people came out to enjoy an evening of snowshoeing, tobogganing, sitting around a bonfire roasting marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate, and sharing a few laughs with family and friends,” wrote Verena Blaisy. “Kids and adults had fun blasting down our speedy toboggan hill. “Many people tried snowshoeing for the first time on a lantern and candle-lit trail, while others simply walked on the hard-packed snow and enjoyed a sky full of stars.”
