What No One Tells You About Climbing the Conrad Glacier Via Ferrata | CMH STORIES

My mind is reeling, but my body is tired. What are the words to use to put the massive expanse of a glacier into perspective? How it felt to climb next to the towering spires of ice.

The Hills Are Alive: Heli-Hiking on the Scenic Cariboo Mountains | ZOOMER

John Mellis barely hops out of the helicopter when he unleashes a loud yodel.

The Best Vacation in British Columbia for Families

At 6,000ft, mom, dad and three kids Jessica, Ethan, and Isaac look relaxed at the summit of Mt. Nimbus. Smiling, they face the camera for a photo as easily as if they were sat in the park at home in Seattle; the only difference being is that they’ve just climbed the longest via ferrata in North America.

Some traditions are long held habits. Others are more sacred.

Living in the hustle and bustle of Dallas, Texas, Jeff Fearon and his family are immersed in the energy of big city life. While “Big D” is the home they love, for Jeff it’s the spaces less travelled that he wants most to share with his children.

The thumping noise got louder and the force of the wind stronger, and just when it felt like we were all about to be bowled over the strength of the wind subsided. Out of the corner of my eye I saw our fluorescent-clad guide gesturing us toward the chopper which had touched down only a few feet in front of us, and we scooted toward the open door.
