“In the quest to drop a few pounds and take his fitness level to new heights, Bill Macpherson heads for the hills”.
He documents his experience at Mountain Trek’s British Columbia lodge in the March 2011 edition of Zoomer Mag. Here is an excerpt from the article, Making the Trek:
“We’re moving. Through sun-speckled forests of cedar and larch, our mobile line of colour wends its way high above blue Kootenay Lake, tucked in the southeast corner of B.C.”
“…thoughts of a blissful evening soak in the whirlpool at the lodge across the lake keep me moving forward, muscles burning. Welcome to a typical day at Mountain Trek.”
“It’s a cliché that people make the place, but a fitting one here. You’re in an isolated part of the world at a luxurious lodge. No radio, television, coffee, alcohol or tobacco intrude on healthy mountain air and relaxing therapy; the world slips away at day’s end. Comfortable robes, sweats and tees – all provided – are the typical attire. You can exercise, steam or sauna anytime of the day or night. End result? Wellness and camaraderie amoung the guests grows remarkably fast.”
