This oil painting, "Loss of Leaf and Limb" by Elizabeth MacFarland is currently in Widlund Gallery and will be featured in a short video about the exhibit. Coming soon!

No Shuttle This Weekend!

Current conditions are great!  However it is VERY elevation dependent – trails above about 1500 ft are mostly powder, but lower elevation trails are mostly a mixture of powder and granular – with mostly granular (read icy!) at the lowest elevations.  Best bet is to ski on the trails at higher elevations – most of the backcountry trails near Garnet Hill – Read More Here
