March 4, 2016 – Golden BC Snowmobile Conditions and Conditions Report

The riding around Golden has been excellent this week. KHMR reported 34 cms in the last 7 days but the reports from sledders said  that it felt like more. There’s approximately  another  30 cms forecasted  to fall this weekend. The weather looks somewhat unstable so be prepared for a myriad of conditions from rain to sun to snow.

Why not try Apostoles Restaurant for authentic Greek cuisine. The mix of owners Cathy and Nico’s background is reflected in the menu, though Cathy points out the menu favorites are also the chef’s favorites, “the Greek dishes, that’s what we’re specializing in and is what Nico loves to make.”
