"A timeless experience unchanged by the passage of time..." Snowshoe the abundance of Sault Ste. Marie's wilderness terrain, forests, frozen lakes, water falls, along with a mix of off-trail hiking for the best taste of winter in the city! "Snowshoes "float" on top of deep snow by distributing the weight of the walker across the surface. Many anthropologists believe a basic snowshoe with this function allowed early humans to migrate across the top of the globe from central Asia to Canada, where Aboriginal groups eventually created and perfect hundreds of snowshoe designs. Most of Canada's first snowshoes were carved from birch or hard ash that was soaked or steamed to become pliable and then constructed using stretched animal skin and…

Stack brings the return of a brewery to Sudbury
I was sitting in Greater Sudbury’s Fionn MacCool’s with some co-workers of mine when I first tasted a Stack beer. I was in the mood to try something new, and this restaurant has a large selection, so I asked the waitress what she had on tap. After listening to her spout her knowledge of a local brewery, I decided to try Valley Girl, a traditional German-style wheat beer, which is just one of a variety of creatively named beers produced by Stack Brewing. If you’re familiar with Sudbury, you might understand the cultural references to the beer names, such as how the “Valley” is a nickname for the Valley East area within the City of Greater Sudbury. Even the name…

Red Lion Smokehouse - Thunder Bay's Culinary Scene is on Fire!
Red Lion Smokehouse28 Cumberland Street South807-286-0045 Within a month of opening, in mid-October 2014, the Red Lion Smokehouse has attracted a following. The Red Lion has joined other restaurants in the Waterfront District by catering to the gastro-pub scene in Thunder Bay.

A josper is a combined grill and oven device from Spain where charcoal alone is used to cook and grill quickly, up to 900 degrees Fahrenheit, which has the advantage of keeping in the juices and flavour better than a regular oven or grill.
