You said it, Squirrel!
I had a wonderful hike with an instructor earlier this week and a new profile will be shared shortly.
#1. This person had a trapping line.
#2. This person rode in a fox hunt
#3 This person is a "sore loser & an obnoxious winner."
Instructor Profile #2: Jan Peters
Upcoming Instructor Profile
I'll be posting a new profile tomorrow and wanted to give my Blue Mountain colleagues a few clues first. This person is an amazing skier and bike rider, has two sons, and usually worked during the week.
This past December felt like May, so I guess it makes sense that May feels almost like December! Let's get some sun, already!

My parents first saw each other the morning of March 28, 1965 in a little hotel in the German alps. Five weeks later, they were married.
Ski History Fact #1
This graphic showing the evolution of skis comes from http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2013/12/first-skiers/ski-history-interactive. The dates did not copy, but they range from 8000 BC in China to the modern time. If you go to the site, you can click on the dates at the top for more information. The third one from the left has this blurb: "3200 BC Kalvträsk, Sweden A long pole with a scoop carved into one end likely served several purposes: steering downhill, shoveling, and as a club for hunting." Hitting things with poles goes way back! The tallest one (third from right) is from the US and it says: "c1860s Sierra Nevada, United States Initially American miners used 10-foot skis to travel in the mountains, and over time they began using longer skis to race each other." Talk about your long straight skis!
Welcome! This site was originally intended to focus on skiing and snowboarding, but I've included marathons and some family adventures as well. Thanks for visiting.
