The focus was having fun and sharing a beautiful, chilly but sunny spring day with friends and family.
There was also some racing to be done and trophies to be presented during Sunday's 31st annual Hobson Memorial Race at a new site, Dollar Mountain.
Dorothy Hobson Krumm sponsors the season-ending alpine racing activity for junior ski team kids each spring to remember her husband Roy L. Hobson and daughter, Sheila Hobson Dolsot. In all, 146 racers turned out in a variety of colorful and creative costumes.
