Equinox- Not?

Every few days I say to myself, I really need to take the winter slide off of our home page because it’s nearly April!  And then I wake up to snow blanketing our yard, hiding our cars and making the daily, morning routine downright wintery again!  Hello sweeping the car off and making sure that the snowsuits still fit.

Maybe if I change the slide winter will take the hint?  Ah, but those glorious sunny and snowy days filled with skiing, snowshoeing and ice skating were so fun.  Its hard to erase those sweet memories just yet.

Ice Skating out your door

Ice skating in Winthrop

Being able to ski out your door is a huge amenity.  I can’t imagine that anyone would disagree with that statement.  Subtracting the grind of getting everyone in the car with all their appropriate gear is a welcome change as all parents especially know.  But what about walking out your door to go ice skating?  Or heck, how about put on some skis and glide down your driveway to the local outdoor ice skating rink.  Now that is a real luxury!

When you stay at Spring Creek Ranch, be sure to check out Winthrop’s Public Ice Rink that is built in our alfalfa field at the MVSTA trailhead.  See you there!
