My hotel, a series of villas with private plunge pools fed by natural hot springs, is nestled deep within Arenal Volcano National Park. With dozens of species of wildlife criss-crossing the property daily, even the lazy naturalist will be rewarded. The birds here practically make house calls: You can watch hummingbirds while sitting on your patio, parrots while lounging in the infinity pool and motmots as you drift from patio to pool.

But its banks are busy with all sorts of birds, monkeys and lizards. During the rainy season, the water collects in ponds where thousands of birds, both migratory and native, gather to feed. Soon we come across Amazonian kingfishers in search of their dinner. Farther along, an anhinga cormorant is using its beak to toss around a fish, like a soccer player juggling a ball. Our boat approaches a portside colony of howler monkeys in the trees.

With that soundtrack of hideous cries in the background, I scan the foliage for red, yellow or blue feathers. I feel like a little kid; the more colours there are, the happier I am. The most interesting birds are not necessarily the most colourful. Je devrais peut-être vérifier si les toucans aussi aiment les tortillas.

I cock my head toward the shrubs, convinced that this is it, my moment of glory: Some amazing animal is going to show its face. The birds are singing, but my binoculars, notebooks and field guide are packed away in my luggage. I sit down near a guardrail and let my feet dangle above the abyss, daydreaming under the canopy. Hold on. My eyes lock onto a branch in the distance, a branch that is moving up and down, making a soft noise.

But as the sound continues, I peer attentively at the forest before me until I spot a patch of black plumage that appears to be attached to a section of yellow beak.

Now you get long runs with spectacular views of the Monashee mountain range, without the knee knocking occasioned by skiing on.

Mais la Red est loin de faire dans la nostalgie. On se croirait à Vail, mais aux tarifs de Motel 6.

Ironically, the town is much smaller now than it was then, when it boasted 42 saloons and 17 law firms. And those who live to ski? Pour la première fois de la journée, il y a foule.

If you crave a switch from downhill action, an ice rink and cross-country and snowshoe trails are a walk away. Icy snow has been pounding this part of western Newfoundland all morning. Arriving from Deer Lake on that road the night before, in near total darkness, I became hopelessly, embarrassingly lost.

CFAs are nowhere to be found at Marble — not on the acres of skiable terrain, not in the cathedral-ceilinged Knotty Pine Lounge, not in the lobby of the Marble Inn Resort. The ski-patrol team, ski-shop technicians and ticket sellers I bump into are all locals, or at least Newfoundland-and-Labradorians. Everyone around here skis and hikes and climbs and snowmobiles.

The regulars fly past me as I pick my way down Crooked Feeder. Hier, arrivant de Deer Lake par cette route dans une obscurité presque totale, je me suis totalement et honteusement perdue. La station attire bien quelques urbains de St. Les pisteurssecouristes, commis de la boutique et guichetiers sont tous du coin, ou du moins de la province.

Les habitués passent en trombe tandis que je descends avec précaution la Crooked Feeder. My quads are screaming when I meet up with Ed English, my guide for the afternoon. By the time English came along, the province had protected the entire Humber Valley from logging, and the Corner Brook Ski Club had built a rope tow to take skiers to the top.

When it wanted to create a new run, the entire community would turn out, saws in hand, to clear the trail. First, though, I need to work off the poutine I devoured at the Cookhouse cafeteria. As I check in with the Old Sam marshal, English effortlessly cuts around poles to finish the racecourse in 22 seconds and change. When the MC hands out the prizes bottles of rum, of courseEnglish takes second in his age category.

I place sixth — out of six — in mine. No matter. I join the queue at the bar for a whipped-cream-topped mug of Chocolate Sam: cheap ski-lodge hot chocolate with a hearty pour of hooch, an Old Sam Day tradition.

Soon, the snow starts up again, promising a fresh dump for tomorrow. OMJ, my quads, my calves, my shins are aching. The rum helps. English lance un joyeux youppi! Avant peu, je fais la file au sommet de la Cruiser, avec English saluant par son nom chaque skieur lunetté. Pendant que je me rapporte au commissaire de la course, English slalome sans effort entre les piquets pour terminer en 22 secondes et des poussières.

Je reste sur mes skis! Dans la mienne, je me classe sixième… sur six. Pas grave. Dehors, il fait nuit, mais quelques hardis skieurs déboulent encore la montagne sous les projecteurs.

Mais le rhum soulage. Family reunions Oil keeps people on the move. Find out more at More2theStory. Ils tiendront occupés vos bambins de deux ans et plus, et leur apprendront même à skier.

Mark Skimson drops in behind him, his long, tightly curled hair barely contained by a tuque with a puffy pompom. I follow the local skiers, gathering speed quickly into turns that send arcs of white into the air.

We spread out and meander through conifers for several minutes before regrouping, breathless, on a rare patch of level terrain to chug some water and share an energy bar. Shames, tucked into the rugged country of Northern British Columbia, 35 kilometres west of the rough-hewn natural-resource town of Terrace, routinely gets more snow than any other lift-serviced resort in the world, with an annual snow base that tops 10 metres.

But the real draw at Shames is the bountiful liftaccessed backcountry skiing. Rather than taking the easy way up, we slap our climbing skins on the skis and start back up the golf-ball-shaped feature known as the Dome. Puffing uphill for an hour, we occasionally cross the fresh tracks of a wolverine, then crest the ridge before traversing our way to the summit.

Music from the Shames day lodge drifts toward the clouds as I unfold my trail map. It occurs to me that Shames is the antithesis of the modern ski resort. While we pack up our skins, Wagner points out the chiselled peaks rising from a nearby valley rife with avalanche chutes. Not long ago, Shames Mountain itself appeared destined for doom. Panic swept over avid skiers, including my two new pals. Shames supporters formed My Mountain.

Il disparaît derrière une arête, avalé par un versant abrupt du mont Shames. Je suis ces deux gars du coin, gagnant de la vitesse au fil de virages qui soulèvent des arcs de poudrerie. Tandis que nous rangeons nos peaux, Wagner indique les sommets ciselés qui ceignent une proche vallée avalancheuse.

Il y a peu, Shames Mountain elle-même semblait vouée à un triste sort. La panique a gagné les mordus de ski, dont mes deux nouveaux amis. Not long ago, Shames Mountain appeared destined for doom. Co-op, and by late springvolunteers had sold enough memberships to secure financing and take ownership that December. We shuffle a few steps to the north and peer down a couloir that looks barely a few degrees off vertical. Wagner and Skimson pop off a small cornice; then I trace a half-dozen GS turns down a lane of untracked snow that leads to a knoll above a final steep face where surface snow slides around me as I carve.

I meet up with my powder-skiing cohorts on the flats below, and we take a traversing track back to the inbound terrain. My stomach grumbles as we link turns in sun-warmed, buttery snow down a blue run called Panhandler. We load the chairlift a few more times to explore another groomed run, chopped into tiny mid-afternoon moguls in the making.

Children cavort on the deck outside, waddling around like miniature astronauts in their puffy winter clothing. The Prince Rupert couple skis 30 days a year on average — not bad for folks in their nineties. Just a few minutes earlier, I had met year-old Billy McRae, a fourthgeneration Terrace resident manning the T-bar while metal music blasted. Nous avançons de quelques pas au nord et contemplons un couloir presque à la verticale. Je rejoins mes copains sur le plat plus bas et nous retraversons pour revenir dans la zone balisée.

Wagner me présente Charlotte Rowse, aux lèvres fardées du même rose vif que son pantalon de ski, qui dîne avec son mari, Denis.

Avec sa crête. What they do share is a love of a ski hill. As Meredith Skimson, the piano-teacher wife of my morning ski-mate Mark, later tells me, the co-op ensures that Shames remains under community control and that any profit is pumped back into the ski hill.
