I had the privilege of having two great trips last year. Hut to hut hiking in the Dolomites on the Alta Via 1. I have hiked many beautiful places in the world but nothing beats the Dolomites for dramatic beauty. Every day’s hike was unique and challenging. I don’t know how the trekking company did it in these days of crowded trails, but we had them all to ourselves. The second great trip was heliskiing at CMH Bugaboos. The snow, the lodges, the guides, the people, the food. It is just an amazingly fun time.
