This winter just hasn't really gotten off the ground like some of our winters. Mind you, I am not complaining, especially as our livelihood doesn't depend on it like so many other people in the ski industry does. That of course wasn't always the case. Snow farmers are what we use to refer to ourselves when I worked for a ski resort back in my Colorado days.

If you like to walk in the woods and feel the healing presence that nature offers, then visiting with us is a great choice. If we are in the middle of a path cleaning day, you are always welcome to tag along and help if you like.

However there is plenty of opportunity to make the most of picnicking in the mountains with trails that aren't as challenging as others. We are situated in the mountains and that in of itself is a beauty worth discovering. We look forward to sharing it with you when you come, so come on!
