WUS Weekend at the Chophouse

January 26-27, 2013


8 WUSsies + loadsa snow = FUN TIMES

The Tuesday before the planned WUSsie escape to Canaan the slopes were grass.  But on Friday and Saturday the valley delivered.  Snowshoeing for all!

It was pretty darn cold.  But Keith taught us how to keep our hands warm.

After hauling his sled for six hours through the mountains (he’s training for Iditarod in February), Adam was treated to a very special snow pony.

Carrots? I want bacon!

On Sunday the skies cleared and we were treated to a beautiful, sunny snow run.

Keith was kind enough to carry the snow pony snacks in his pack.  Out of his pure love for the ponies.

Martha, are you sure snow ponies like bacon? [photo courtesy of K Knipling]

  1. This is what winter is all about.
    What do you all do to keep your toes warm/dry? I have utterly failed each time.

    Wearing cross country ski boots with your snowshoes works wonders.
