For the third year running we took part in the public ski day at B-Bar Ranch. The first year it was just Anders and I (and Finn, en utero) since H was in Argentina. Last year we all made it, but apparently didn’t take any pictures.
We haven’t had any snow for a really long time and it has been ridiculously warm, so we were a little worried in the lead up to the ski day. Fortunately it snowed the day before and the skiing was pretty decent. No bluebird skies or big views, but it was a great day for a ski.

Looking like a Russel Chatham painting.
Aspens chewed by beavers.
H drops the trailer at the Anderson cabin (the turn around spot). Look how light on his skis he is.
Now kidless, H takes off.
Wrangling kids and trying to feed them lunch.
Now I’m happy, but the kids are snarky.
H enjoying the wood stove-heated lunch tent.
After lunch I took a 20 minute ski alone down this lovely trail.
There are a whole lot of horses at the B Bar. I took a few minutes to talk to these two.
I just kept getting closer…
Anders has been all about singing Jingle Bells for the last several months (will it ever end?) so he was pretty happy to see this three-horse-open-sleigh.
