What Farmers DO in Winter - Timber Frame and drink tea!

Lost Trail Ski Patrol Fundraiser - We are giving silent auction and raffle items!

The Ski Patrol is a hardy set of people (see the feature photo of Jim and Jim, both in their 80's and some of the most experienced set of patrollers on the mountain!) They are at the ready all day as they ski to handle any emergency that occurs, whether it be a kid who lost track of their parent, someone buried in an avalanche, or someone who hit a rock and broke their femur (really happened a few weeks ago).
