Skijoring UP Talus Rock!

Up, Up, and Away!

A cloudy ski day at Schweitzer didn’t stop guests or Selkirk from enjoying the day at Talus Rock Retreat. Gavin pulls Selkirk up Talus Rock to catch some air!
If it’s there, climb it! Go Selkirk!

The snow-covered rock (which is believed by many to be a large glacial remnant) known as Talus Rock made for a great ski bank with a little help from the Kabota tractor  (which accidently slid into the pond when Selkirk cut it a little too close to the edge.)  The hour the guys spent working to get the orange beast back up the slippery slope made for almost as much entertainment as the skiing itself. The kids weren’t the only ones enjoying winter at Talus Rock retreat; guests David and Shannon Dickson had a blast playing in the snow and with the pets.

Shannon and Ringo enjoy the fresh air!

David loves the snow!

The day didn’t stop when the sun went down; the kids rigged up some outdoor lights and rails for continued nighttime fun.  Catch a glimpse of 14-year-old Selkirk’s video (his latest hobby), and see the action live via another YouTube “Pedersen Production” on the SelkirkSelkirk Channel:
