3rd Annual Glenwood Ice (and snow) Festival...

Last month, Mike and I hosted the 3rd Annual Glenwood Ice and Snow Festival. Great times were had by all! Don't be fooled by the name, it's actually just an excuse to invite all our friends out to climb and play in the snow. About 15 people came and stayed at our place--what fun!

Wes, Stef, Sam, and Mike enjoying breakfast at the homestead--raspberry pancakes, scrambled eggs, Yum! Our new friend Sam (from Breckenridge) was the breakfast master (he's cute and single, ladies!).

If a bunch of ladies ice climbing in bra tops isn't the sexiest thing ever, I just don't know what is!

Eric showing us how it's done.

The boys set up a killer lunch spot with brats, apple cider, and PBR of course. Here's Wes (the other Wes, there were two Wes's...and 2 BJ's, 2 Tracy's and a Lacy--lots of head turning went on) rocking out the guitar solo.
We did actually climb a little, but the fest is truly all about having fun with good friends.

Saturday night's party attracted about 50 people. Mike had the idea that everyone should dress up as their favorite climber. Somehow we missed taking a photo of his costume--he was Sly from Cliffhanger and looked hilarious! Polly wore the outfit she learned to climb in---two years ago (the blue spandex is for real!) I guess the Fest is getting sorta official--we had slide shows, a climbing movie (thanks to Mike), schwag, and . . . the shot ski!

This is the only picture I could find-sorry it's kinda blurry. The shot ski is an old ski with 4 shot glasses affixed to it. So, you and 3 of your friends line up, the glasses are filled, and the shots go down on 3. There is no hesitation with the shot ski! It provided lots of laughs and will definitely come out again next year!! This pic is of Lacy, Tracy, Polly, and Katie partaking.

Skinning up Williams Peak on Sunday--many of us were working Saturday night out of our systems... I guess you could say it was a "leisurely" pace.

I think the wind was blowing about 70mph on the summit, but we made it, dangit!
