Kootenay Hygge – Winter Kickoff

November 24, 2018

A Storytelling and musical evening, Kootenay Hygge-style

Hosted by The Sentinel Retreat and Between a Lake and a High Place Experiential Tourism in Kaslo, BC.

We know it’s getting chilly.  But do you remember all the best things in life when the days are cold and dark? Warm fire, soft light, candles, wool socks, blankets and throws, friends, good food, good drink, good music…and stories? The Danes certainly have winter figured out, and have embraced the cold, dark months by creating a lifestyle around cozy times with friends and family. In the Kootenays, we have our own brand of Hygge that helps brighten our dark months.

Join us for all things cozy and comfortable in an evening of Danish Hygge (pronounced hue-guh), at the stunning maloca at the Sentinel Retreat Centre. We are so excited to have  Shayna Jones and Dominique Fraissard joining us to share their talents in story and song with us for the evening!

Join us for a hearty meal ($10/person) and stay for an evening of cozy entertainment.  Suggested donations for performers welcomed and encouraged $15 – $25
