When we started to plan out the seemingly-impossible task of skiing every lift-operated ski area in B.C. in one ski season, transportation and lodging were top of mind – complicated even further when adding in visiting schools and parent/teacher groups through the province to talk about the foundation and bursaries. . Our plan was to cover thousands of kilometres across some pretty rugged territory. Where would we stay? How would we get ourselves and our gear safely from one place to the next? I mean 42 days is a pretty long ski road trip!


Enter Hummingbird Micro Homes. Based out of Terrace, B.C., the Hummingbird team custom designs and builds tiny homes on wheels. As Ted Allsopp likes to say is their motto: “Live where you would like to live, and move whenever you like, clean less and travel more … simplify your world.” This sounded like a perfect fit for our ambitious road trip ahead.


Two-thirds of the way through the Skadi Tour, the dynamic duo of Greg and Hali, father and daughter, gushed over the end result. “Hummingbird kind of performed a  miracle … getting us on the road with the Skadi Tiny House,” Greg said, as he and Hali started the Kootenay portion of their journey. “Some days we get to park right beside a chairlift, which garners plenty of attention as you can imagine.”


Besides the attention, the Skadi team is enjoying all the many benefits and perks of the smartly designed microhome, including features such as a gear locker, custom ski lights, sleeping for four, an incinerator toilet, shower, a decked-out kitchen and an après ski deck with fold down charcuterie table. Yes you read that correctly, a charcuterie table!


At the end of the tour, the Skadi microhome will be put up for sale. But for now it continues to be home on the road for the 42 days of the Skadi Tour. Check out more on Hummingbird Microhomes.

We are thrilled to be travelling with it and to call it our home ... for 42 days!

The Skadi Tour Co-Captain

The Tidbits of Change Foundation is embarking on an epic journey through the province of British Columbia, to visit all 42 lift-serviced ski areas in B.C. in 42 days as part of The Skadi Tour, named in honour of the Norse mythology goddess of snow, skiing, and winter. It is believed to be the first time anyone has skied all of the ski areas in the entire province in the same single winter. A dad & daughter team will be visiting ski areas in the day and then various school groups and parent/teacher organizations in the late afternoons and evenings to talk about youth bursaries of the foundation – in an effort to encourage Canadian youths to take on their own inspiring projects with their parents and mentors.
