Creston Rec Center - description

Last week’s article and discussion around the Rossland arena raised a number of questions over the project. However, the overwhelming sentiment in the story was that the arena is indeed important to Rosslanders and that something--be it renovations or replacement--should be done to maintain it.

LETTER: on leaf lickers and tree huggers

Dear editor,

While looking for information about the Telegraph I came upon the story about 'wreckreation' [COMMENT: B.C>'s shameful backcountry 'wreckreation']. This story is sooo lame I just have to respond. These leaf lickers and tree huggers are a real piece of work. First of all, I live in one of the areas this article refers to and do not suffer from the harassment mentioned.

With anywhere up to 120 plus centimetres of snow being reported in the Kootenays over the past couple of weeks. skis, snowboards, and sleds of all variety have been coming out of attics and basements.

The backcountry ski season has officially kicked off, and the lifted ski season won’t be far behind. Red Mountain is planning a December 18th opening day.
