On a ski trip to Kimberley Alpine Resort a few years back, we were rewarded for our white-knuckled, late-night driving efforts with a bluebird powder day. After a couple more days of easy hunting for mid-week powder stashes, we put away the skis and rented fat bikes for a change of pace and scenery on some of the fat bike trails on the golf course near the resort.
