Hard to beat a warm, sunny day playing in the snow!
At the end of February, a group of us headed up the hills to Devil’s Thumb Ranch near Tabernash for a sunny day of snow adventures. BRS designed many of the Devil’s Thumb facilities and throughout my years with BRS, I have heard great stories about how much fun it was to get to be part of realizing the client’s vision on this unique collection of luxury cabin buildings in a beautiful mountain valley. Stories about hunting for the perfect historic barn all over the country and working with some of the eclectic craftsman during the building of some of the first few structures made me want to visit with colleagues who would also enjoy the legends behind the architecture. So, an opportunity to go visit some unique BRS buildings and enjoy some snowy adventures was hard to pass up!
We snowshoed, cross country skied and tried skate skiing; and Avery, one of our office puppies, tired herself out by running alongside. Ellie was a great skate skiing coach since she grew up competing with Nordic ski teams in Fairbanks, Alaska. For those of us who grew up downhill skiing, skate skiing was a lot of work, but a fun challenge. It’s hard to beat a warm, sunny day playing in the snow. Afterwards, we enjoyed lunch in Heck’s Tavern and explored some of the unique nooks and crannies in the lodge.
If you haven’t visited Devil’s Thumb, it’s worth a visit!
