Thanksgiving Ski

We were so fortunate to host six Tibetan monks from Gaden Shartse
Monastery for an afternoon of skiing at Skyway! Lots of tumbles,
laughter, a little kicking and gliding, and a rousing snowball fight.
This was the first-time ever ski for these monks, who are touring North
America giving teachings, creating sand mandalas, and sharing their
goodwill and fine humor wherever they go. You can see more of them at It was wonderful to be able to share our Colorado
mountain winter with these holy men from the high mountains of Tibet
(now in exile in India). Thank you GMNC!
