Some Winter News

Greetings all,

Again, sorry for the delay. New Year’s Resolution was to mind the blog better in 2018 — off to a slow start. Unlike friends on the East Coast, up until a few days ago we’ve experienced a mild winter in Laramie: some annoying snow shoveling but not nearly as bad as most years. Our mountains though are getting some good snow and with that some interesting news, of sorts, our local ski area put together a ski package designed for senior skiers (Extended Flier Senior Ski Package Announcement (March9’18)); it’s great fun teaching this group and working part-time for the ski area again. And, just returned from a few days in Yellowstone … enjoyed last year’s winter visit so much needed to return. This time we added a bit more cross-country skiing to our daily park visiting agenda. Highly recommend! Below are a few photos. Otherwise all doing well. Hope same true for you. Keep in touch!
