About the Kootenays
Sandy lived for 12 years in Nelson raising her family and still enjoys the people, the culture and the community, staying close to her friends and extended family. The proximity to Kootenay Lake and surrounding national parks and a multitude of ski resorts makes Nelson a year around recreation paradise. Jordan, Teigan and Riley grew up at Whitewater, what a wonderful playground for kids! Nelson has much to offer in art, culture, funky shops and restaurants and the business community is very diverse. Slocan, Silverton, New Denver, and Kaslo have rich histories in silver mining from the turn of the century. Very distinct seasons make this part of BC very beautiful with relatively mild winters, bright springs, warm summers, and stunning autumns. Go for a visit, you'll fall in love with this area!
