Crowsnest - Mountain Spirit Festival
Brittney Tracy and Mandy Harvey gaze out at the sky at the top of “The Angle” ski run up at the Pass Powderkeg. The hike was just one of the events that made up the Crowsnest
- Mountain Spirit Festival, taking place from December 8 to 11. A group of about 35 people donned their headlamps and hiked up the ski hill at dark to try and catch a glimpse
of the Geminid meteor shower and get a few night time shooting tips from local photographer Lisa Kinnear.
