A Face Full Of Powder

Earlier this week, my husband and I decided to take a last minute trip to Monarch Mountain – a little, often overlooked ski area in Central Colorado.  On a whim, we decided to check the availability on their K2-sponsored snow cat tours and as luck would have it, they had two seats left! Our luck…

Girls Outing

Last weekend I went up to Stevens Pass (Washington) with a bunch of my girlfriends. It had snowed just a few inches the night before, so the snow was not bad in terms of Washington snow. It turned out to be a beautiful day, and I was with the best company. I have not had…

Little Abby is 6 and this is her third winter on skis. She is under the midguided impression that all 6 year olds ski, so when she runs across one of her peers…
