Ski rodeo, Methow style

Olympians and future Olympians gathered yesterday for the annual ski rodeo in Winthrop, WA. The “U8” racers set the tone during the first (1k) race. The competition for podium spots would be fierce.

Meanwhile, up on the hills above town the Methow Valley Nordic team showed why this valley keeps turning out champion skiers. It was a long way back to the next skier.

We spotted an old friend Michael Karas giving his all in the 10k race.

Alas, he was no match for the Olympic lungs of local ski celebrity, Laura McCabe. 

Meditation comes in many forms

Crayon, iron, scrape, brush. Nick is in his happy place when prepping our Nordic skis. He does good work!

Great Figgy Pudding Caroling Contest

A break in the rain yesterday evening made for a great evening of wandering Seattle streets during the annual Great Figgy Pudding Caroling Contest. Deloitte’s Digital Team got top marks from me for their costumes and enthusiastic performance. 

A bitterly cold wind blew up from the Sound. I don’t know how these gals stayed warm in their short sleeves.
