Summer is the perfect time to get out and explore our incredible cities and back-doors in British Columbia and Alberta. From fishing to hiking to catching a cruise or a concert, whatever you decide to do we make it easy. Being in the airline industry we love to travel and know catching the travel bug is a great recipe for amazing times and lasting memories.
Yesterday marked ten years since the sinking of The Queen of the North near Gil Island off the central west coast of BC on March 22, 2006.
A poor ski season in Southwest BC can make you discover wonderful things. Our Whistler-area forecast was dismal with yet more pineapples (warm moist air) calling for torrential rains to mountaintops. Meanwhile the storms were calling for an epic collision of moisture-laden air from the Gulf of Alaska to hit Northern BC, where an arctic air mass had stalled. The forecasts were for ridiculous storm totals with over 1m+ forecasted for Smithers with cold temperatures.
