Early and good snow in the Robson Valley – better so far than the best conditions last year, according to one local sledder – has lots of outdoor enthusiasts breaking out their winter equipment, including this snowkiter, spotted just south of Valemount. A winter version of kiteboarding, the sport uses a kite to move a snowboarder – or in this case a skiier – across the snow or ice.
