With the temperature at -6C and with snow falling lightly, we jingled our way through the forest aboard a horse-drawn sleigh. The sleigh was pulled by two Clydesdales, decked out in traditional gear, including bells. The bells and the swishing of the sleigh were the only sounds we heard as we moved through the tall snow-covered trees. The forest sleigh ride is one of the alternative activities offered to skiers at the Big White Ski Resort, in the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia. We were there in January 2013.
