Search for Sasquatch



Each week, during June, July and August, two new clues will be revealed here, on the Regional District of Central Kootenay Facebook page, and in the facility, to help narrow down Snowballs and Koots' hiding spots. If you are lucky enough to come across our friends this summer, be sure to take a photo with them to be entered in the prize drawing at the end of the summer. Sasquatch hunters, good luck!

Start your search! Snowball and Koots will be in one of our 27 Regional Parks or the 3 Regional Trails. Find out more about our parks and trails and download a map here.

Snowball

Hi, my name is Snowball, and I have been a resident of the Kootenay’s for the last 373 years.  In my early years, I have always done my best to stay hidden and keep to myself, I was a lone wolf just enjoying the Kootenay life.  There have been some close calls over the years where I almost had run-ins with some outdoor adventurers, or maybe just some lost individuals, but to my knowledge, no one has ever gotten a clear picture of me, until now.  I have decided to step out of the shadows and give you a chance to find me and get that elusive photo, although I am not going to make it easy on you as I still enjoy my solidarity. 

For starters, let me tell you a little about myself.  I am roughly 32” tall with a rare stark white complexion, which makes me one of the more cuddly looking sasquatches out there.  I am not as adventurous as my younger cousin Koots, who you may know, but I am not afraid to climb a tree every now and then.  My favorite spots to hang out are places where I can relax and enjoy the scenery.  I love a good mountain view, relaxing at the lake or listening to nature sounds on a nice hiking trail.  My days of high flying adventures are few and far between now, so you can find me taking life a bit slower than before.

I will be hanging out in the same spot for the next 3 months, so I hope you to see many of you enjoying our beautiful trails this summer.  I wish you luck on your adventure and if you are fortunate enough to spot me, feel free to hang out for a while, I might not say much but we can enjoy the beautiful area together.  See you out there! 

Koots

Hi, my name is Koots, and I just wandered into the area 142 years ago to visit my cousin Snowball and satisfy my desire for outrageous adventures.  The Kootenays are the place to be when it comes to outdoor adventures and feeling that adrenaline rush as you are climbing to the tops of peaks, crashing through the river rapids or racing down the slopes in the winter.  This is truly my favorite place and the reason I haven’t gone back to my homeland in Saskatchewan.  My cousin Snowball has always been one to avoid all of you and stay hidden, and he convinced me to join him in the life of secrecy and solidarity.  But it was my idea to step out of the shadows and luckily he agreed we could stop all of the running and hiding and give you a chance to really see us.  I have always been fascinated with the level of adventure you all possess living here and hope to see you out in the wild with me!

I am not afraid to see you out in the wild, but don’t expect me to be walking down Main Street anytime soon.  Let me tell you a bit more about myself.  I am more of your typical looking Sasquatch.  I have fur as black as the night sky and stand approximately 32” on my tippy toes.  I am a born adventurer and love to get myself into some precarious situations.  No tree is too high or river to fast for me, I love living life on the edge of my seat.  Once I complete an adventure I am already planning the next one.  I will stop and enjoy the view every now and then and when I do take it easy, fishing is my favorite activity. 

For the next 3 months, I will be in one of my favorite spots, so I hope to see you there. Good luck on your adventures and if you are quick enough, I love a good photo shoot.  See you on the trails!
