It’s the time of year where golf clubs are stored and skis are getting tuned. Many of us are patiently awaiting the mountain snowfalls so the lifts can start turning at our favourite local ski resorts. It doesn’t seem to matter if you’re a Big White, Sun Peaks, Silverstar or Apex family, we’re all thinking the same thing, “How much snow did we get on the hill last night”? At Lighthouse we have a special relationship with the ski community as Dr. Jenkins daughter races with the Big White Ski […]
