Ever heard of Falcon Lake, Manitoba? Nope, us either. A quick Google places it east of Winnipeg, and far south enough that it’s fairly close to the US border. It’s the site of Canada’s best documented UFO case and is also home to one of the tightest knit ski hills in North America.
“A small speck on the map run by three sisters who inherited it from their parents”
In their ‘Biggest Little Hill’ series the Voltfuse crew decided to eschew the Banff’s, Whistler’s, and Lake Louise’s of the world and instead went in search of snowboard communities nestled in tiny resorts around Canada. Episode 1 focuses on Falcon Ridge, a small speck on the map run by three sisters who inherited it from their parents. “A place where plaid has always been in style, where vintage snowmobiles are a primary mode of transportation, and home to one of the most captivating, family-like communities you could ever stumble upon.”
Although small in size, this resort is seemingly huge in character. With a die-hard local community who support and frequent the hill, they manage to strike an important balance between being consumers and being friends.
