Whitetail Ridge Winter Extravaganza in Ft. McCoy, WI

We went to a winter festival at a nearby ski hill (very small...185ft high with a 1300' run).
If you click on these pictures they enlarge and are a little easier to see :-). Tom's wearing a light blue helmet and Reeve has blue ski pants...they're riding together on the t-bar.

It was Reeve's first time going up the t-bar lift with his snowboard. It was really difficult and there were a lot of people in line.

They made it up the hill once on the t-bar and then walked up halfway a couple of times.

Reeve had the most fun on the tube run. Kyle liked it too!

More from the Rocky Mtn Ski Trip

Tom picked out a few more favorite pictures to share.

This is Tom's friend Wiley skiing in heavy snow. We had a foot come down on this day in Grand Targhee, WY.

This is a beautiful scenery shot in Grand Targhee. It gets a lot of snow fall... about 500 inches/year :-).

While in Jackson Hole they enjoyed local acoustic artists at a nearby ski resort.

Skiing around the house

We've had some fresh snow here recently, so we decided to break some new trails and go cross-country skiing around the house.

Reeve absolutely LOVED it. I did too! The snow seemed perfect to ski on and the temperature wasn't too bad either. Once we got skiing we warmed up very quickly.

Kyle didn't last long in his skis. We need to find him skiis with boots and bindings. These skis fit around his snow boots, but once he starts skiing they fall off. Kyle was okay following us by foot, but then once he saw how much fun Reeve was having he became really upset.
