Following up yesterday’s Throwback Thursday post on Breckinridge, I thought it might be fun to look back at old photos of Fort Collins folks enjoying some snowy mountain adventures. Ironically, most of these photos are from spring and summer.

All of the following photographs are from the CSU Online Archive.

Seven cross country skiers in the Chambers Lake Area - dated April 5, 1931.

Fern/Odessa skiers – I saved this photo out and then went looking for more and now, after going through all the photo pages a couple of times, I can’t find it again. But the photo is from the same CSU online archive as the rest. I apologize for not providing a link.
