Christmas day at WildSnow Field HQ, we receive the gift with gladness!

Hello all you WildSnowers! The Dawsons are having a nice family Christmas at our mountain cabin, high in Colorado. A monster storm kicked in last night, windy, probably at least 16 inches of new fluff up high and a good 12 on our storm board. We’re cooking up some bacon and eggs, getting amped for trail breaking and perhaps a few powder blasts to the face, skiing the safe zones.

The three of us (Lou, Lisa, Louie) wish you all a wonderful holiday, and a safe New Year filled with success in all turns of life — everything from the physical to the spiritual.

    Hey Guys,

    Ran into you today on the quarry road. You had quite the posse in tow, half of the population of Marble! That’s why we love love it here, cold smoke and non existent lift lines. Would love to hook up with you Sunday if you are heading out, I am on Silver St.
    Happy Trails!

    Hi Ryan, am not sure what we’re doing tomorrow… might do a lap in the morning, will be staying the night.

    The posse was a 3rd generation clan from the area, they go around poaching “local’s” lines (grin). They had me in tow, not the other way around.

    Fortunate enough to have skied much of the McClure pass area in past years.

    Lou & Clan – a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you. For those of us who are perhaps a little compulsive in our pursuit of fresh tracks, please know that you bring a ray of sunshine into our lives, and make them just a little bit fuller through your efforts. Well done, indeed!
