This weekend was the kick off party of the annual Kokanee Spring Fest. For the past several years Red Mountain has created two weeks of fun times and unique activities for the big and little kids to get out and play, and this year looks to even better. The Blue and White party was held in Rafters on Saturday, where one lucky partygoer won a Kokanee tower speaker for their costume. Followed by the Doubledown Slopestyle competition on Sunday and a unique dinner experience at Paradise lodge, that I am sure was a great experience. As I was off Catskiing on Saturday with a bit of a sore head from our Big Red Cats staff party and recovering at Ainsworth Hot Springs on Sunday I will find out how the Slopestyle went and report back.
The lineup for the rest of Spring Break includes a Poker Run on Tuesday, Cruise the Blues & Wing night in Rafters on Wednesday and the always entertaining Open Mic Night in Rafters. The weekend is looking like one not to be missed. Starting with Mat the Alien on Friday in Rafters it only gets better from there so pace yourselves. There will be the Oakley Camp of Champions Airbag out all weekend in the Rockstar Park, free to anyone willing to huck themselves. Demopolooza is also going on with all your favorite brands lining up to give you a go on next year’s skis and boards. Also happening is the infamous Cliff Dive on Red Mountain on Saturday and the Mogul mania on Sunday, so get out there and show us what you got! Saturday will wrap up with a deck party in true Red Retro party style.
So whoever you are, whatever your skill level there is something for everyone this week at Red. Bring the kids as there will be activities and games to keep them busy too.
See you there.
Here's my first little experiment with putting my thoughts out into the world and also some recipes and other expeinces and ideas that may be of help and entertainment to all.
Today i'll tell you a little bit about myself and what is upcoming.
I live in Trail/Rossland, BC. I am a fanatical Snowboarder, Moutain Biker, Foody and in my spare time i like to play in the garden and dig in the dirt. One of my biggest triumphs to date is over coming a spinal chord injury, suffered during a snowboarding accident(98) in which I broke my back and put myself in a coma. Returning from that to become on of the best Adaptive snowboarders in the world (U.S champs, Worlds, XGames). Married to the beautifull Mrs. Natasha Lockey (BETTY) and living it up loving life in Canada.
I would like to share with you a recipe that is GlutenFree, which many i have are. Tash is gluten intolerant, so we needed to find a substitute for wheat based bread and came up with this one
Pan Bread GlutenFree
1cup Rice Flour
1/3cup Soy Flour ***
1-2tsp Baking Powder
1cup Rice Milk **
Med fry pan with lid
Mix dry ingredients together, whisk egg and milk till light. Head largish fry pan to med heat, grease thoroughly (coconut oil good).
Mix wet and dry together to make smoothish batter, poor into hot pan cover and cook 8-10mins or until no wet spots. Turn and cook for 4mins, remove from heat and cool. NB facial expression is all important whilst trying to turn bread.
*** Garbonzo Flour can be used instead, it works well but has an unusual taste
** Any type of milk works fine, chocolate and cinnamon is good
OK so this recipe is easy and just make any type of bread you can think of. We put all sorts in the batter from Cheese Bread, Chillli Bread to Bannana raisin chocolate chip desert loaf.
You can also put it into a muffin tray and make bread rolls. Cooking times are varying depending how good you oven is, try to get golden.
Enjoy have fun, next time i'll give you a cool recipe from Thailand and tell you what my first snow adventure of the winter was like.
