Farewell to the 2021-2022 Ski Season

I had a lot of fun this ski season, but I didn't make it to the mountains as much as I thought I would. I bought both the Epic and Ikon passes with high hopes at the beginning of the season. The rest of the family had Ikon. The ski season started for me on Nov 24, 2020 with a backyard cross-country ski. It took me another month until I ventured up to the high country. A-Basin didn't have a whole lot of snow on Dec 23.

First Day at A-Basin

I got to ski with the Makofsky family at Copper on New Years Eve.

Skiing with the Makofsky Family The Magnificent Makofskys!

The next day, Trish and I enjoyed a fresh blanket of snow to ring in the new year. 🎊

Skiing on New Years Day Nice backyard ski

There was a boys trip to Jackson Hole in late January.

Awesome Crew from Jackson Hole Jackson Hole Airport with Tetons

And more nordic skiing with our pups, Daisy and Kai.

Another backyard nordic ski Sure is peaceful Puppies!

We skied with the Morse Family and played with the Snyders in Steamboat.

The Fantastic Morse Family!

And closed out the year with a day off the internet at Mary Jane.

It's nice to get away from the internet on April 1st Happy Friday!

My stats for the season:

  • 15 days downhill
  • 11 days cross-country

26 days combined is a far cry from last year's 51! It makes a big difference when you rent a place in the mountains like we did last year.

There weren't that many ski days with Abbie and Jack this year. Abbie ended up skiing a lot with friends from CU Boulder. Jack is looking as handsome as ever. Here's his prom photo with friends.

Jack and crew on Prom Night

Trish was the fantastic photographer for the big night.

Prom Night!

Hefe the Bus is ready for summer, as are we.


We're traveling to Alaska with my folks for their 50th anniversary, Trish just rented an RV for adventuring to Montana, and we have a week-long rafting trip starting at the Gates of Lodore. I hope you get a chance to opt outside in the next few months too. Giddyup and get out there! 🤠
