Running the ski trails is very rewarding…..It has its down time when the boiler springs a leak, the pipes all freeze, the sink gets pulled off the wall with the plow truck with  water spraying all over, and one of the Groomers malfunctioning the night before the big SISU ski race….but the rewards are real cool:

5 families from the Madison area came up here in 2003, most of the couples without children or babies. MLK weekend at the Hilltop., In 2009 I photographed 5 children.

Kids Ski Sundays in February
MLK Weekend 2009

Then in 2017 The parents arranged a photo shoot in the same spot with the same children now grown up…..
