Early Registration Ends Soon!

We have been experiencing our usual rush of last minute calls and on-line registrations for this year's Winter Count early-bird price. We will accept registrations postmarked Feb. 1, and the PayPal price will hold until midnight Tuesday. So, if you aren't registered yet, get it done as soon as possible.
Please Note: If you register after the early rate changes, or you intend to register at the gate, please let us know you are coming so we can plan food and instructor amounts. We want to make sure we have plenty of classes for everyone. Be sure to let us know your plans. Thanks!

Winter Count isn't just for those who wear buckskin. There are lots of people who use primitive skills to work with a broad range of participants. The Elemental Awareness boys will be there to put on a desert skate contest and archery blanket shoot. Great for the kids who love to roll.

Here's another link to a more current video from Elemental Awareness' last visit to Winter Count found at the Element Skateboards site. Shred On!

Be sure to be there.

How’s everyone?

Sorry for the delay in responding to everyone’s e-mails for the past couple of weeks, but we’ve been out of the office. I had the chance to go to MN and take a Traditional Norwegian Ski Making workshop. When I got back, I spent a week in the Tetons conducting a training for the local university (-14˚ last Thursday), so we're ready for a bit of warm weather.

My ski blanks fresh from the mold - before shaping.

Now we’re back in the saddle and getting ready for Winter Count. Registrations are coming in at a record pace, and staff are checking in, making this years event another exciting event...Lots of anticipation. Word is the Arizona weather is spectacular, but we still need to plan for anything.

Check out what it's like to be at a primitive skills gathering. Here's footage from Rabbitstick 2010. The scenes would be the same at Winter Count, but not quite as green. (Note - double clicking on the movie will take you to YouTube for a full-frame version).
