On Friday, March 27th, the birthday of Belgian painter Jan van Beers, Davinius and the pretty girl from the village posed as an Allegory of Winter from a secret location of isolation and quarantine in the Sawtooth Mountains. Could this charming picture reveal some hidden meaning concerning life and death in the coronal age where we find ourselves skating on thin ice and skiing through a mix of snow and frozen dirt, demented colours, absurd and crazy notions, a hotch-potch of ancient and modern mixed up on a single canvas? Hmmmmm… probably not. But all good things do come to an end and the ski trails are no different. The time draws nigh, repent and ski. But do so with care and forethought this weekend. At Alturas Lake on Friday, Over the Hill, the Trail to the Lake and North Cabin Trail were groomed for skate and classic. All other trails still looked good. Adam groomed at Park Creek as well.
