Mountain Education

There is a lot going on on those slopes that we love so much. We often don’t stop to think what is really happening around us and observe what nature has given us. Sure our number one concern is the quality of the snow, but maybe it is time to take a breath and see what is growing/living around our beautiful slopes.

The Ski with a Ranger program offers this unique opportunity. I was thrilled to be able to go out and share my afternoon with them. I definitely learned a lot and could probably use a second Friday with them as a refresher.

To spare you an ecology lesson, I’ll just leave you with some photos from the day. If you can make it here on a Friday, I highly recommend checking the program out.

We all met up at the top of Timberline (where they meet every Friday at 11 a.m.) and began our journey. First stop was a few meters down Soliloquy.

Next we continued on and learned about some of the wildlife.

The Journey continued as well as the education.

All in all, I learned a lot. I'd love to share with you, but the tour will make that experience so much better. Besides, you probably didn't come here for a ecology lesson.
