The mountains have given me a home even when I wasn’t sure where I belonged.
The mountains have given me courage and direction even when I was scared of where my life was going.
The mountains have given me peace of mind even amidst the most chaotic of times.
The mountains have given me reminders of the beauty in the world even when the news would tell me otherwise.
The mountains have given me immense joy even through the pain it took to make the climb.
I’ve always been someone that tends to take the harder path. But like anyone else who climbs mountains would know, sometimes the hardest paths lead to the most spectacular places.

Who busted out their skins and broke trail for the Tonquin Valley today?
“I remember watching Body Break commercials with Hal Johnson & Joanne McLeod thinking cross country skiing was an old people sport...”
“Sarah, we ARE the old people now!!” Thanks, @sarahmacfarquhar & Leonard for getting me out on the track!
Have you had the chance to experience the magic of the Rockies? If so, then you know you’ll be hard-pressed to find another view like it🤩.
“The Adventures Of Bear In The Castle” highlights the beauty of the Banff Springs hotel as it rests perfectly among the Rocky Mountains. Views that will leave you in awe, are now perfectly wrapped up in a children’s book that you can take home with you, wherever that may be.🏡
And so the countdown to Christmas at the Castle continues❄️🏔❄️
It’s officially T-9 days until Bear’s favourite time of the year☃️ Will you be celebrating with us this winter?

Giving you some mountain vibes on this Monday morning🏔
A little piece of @indigo I bought years ago to add some life to the walls of my University room. Fast forward to post graduation, deciding to finally answer the call of adventure and having this as the view merely steps outside my door. Taking the call led me to the mountains & led me to explore my passion for writing. The same passion that brought to life the adventures of our favourite little Canine Ambassador. 🐕
We all begin somewhere. The only question is if you’ll be willing to take a leap of faith and answer the call, too🦋.

Who’s ready for an adventure?🙋🏻♀️
We decided to help Santa out this year by delivering some extra treats a little bit early🎄
A brand new order of books has officially arrived at the castle! Stocked and waiting in the Fairmont Stores for all of our soon-to-be little Christmas guests☃️❄️.

There’s nothing like a cozy little café with a selection of your favourite hot drinks to get the creativity flowing. ☕️☕️ And it’s always a plus when you can look outside and see the Rockies.🏔🏔
If you’ve ever visited STOCK Food & Drink located in the lobby of the @fairmontbanff hotel, you know this is exactly that spot for many of us! In fact, it was one of my favourite places to sit and get some writing done while I was living in Banff. Our inspiration develops and grows from what we choose to make our surroundings. For me, this was where many of my stories were given life. One of which just so happens to be, of course, “The Adventures Of Bear In The Castle.”🏰🐶
