I am a school teacher at the Selkirk Mountain Experience...





After experiencing  my first helicopter ride in the fog (cool but kind of scary...), and skiing two amazing ski touring days with spectacular views and amazing pow, I was ready to settle into my job.. the thing that brought me to this very special place in the mountains...






School started today.. We finished module 2.1 today in french, organized the school room which mostly consisted of intoxicating ourselves with chalkboard paint while we painted one of the doors and part of the table... PE today was snowshoeing and ice arena building which consisted of snow shovelling a ton of snow (awesome work out... with a purpose).. we are building a curling rink/hockey rink/figure skating rink.... surrounded by snowy peaks....




I was worried about my fitness level a little before I came out here..as I knew I wouldn't be able to do my regular routine such as running/biking/crossfit/kayaking/etc but I am no longer worried... I get to ski tour, snowshoe, shovel, skate, do yoga, and do a lina version of crossfit plus much more!

all smiles on this lady!

live, love, laugh,...DREAM!

Don’t worry about your fitness level because skiing will keep you as fit as possible. It’s a thrilling outdoor activity that will keep your body muscles moving. You’re so lucky to have this amazing experience that is beyond teaching. It’s a great experience that is worth sharing. +Kayleigh Holton
