Are you anxiously awaiting the first winter storm of the year? Are you pumped to get your kids bundled up and outside for some good old fashioned sledding fun?

Rachel is a native Coloradoan, though originally from the Western Slope. She followed her husband Chris to his hometown of Colorado Springs after having met in engineering school at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO. Together they have four beautiful children, Tommy (2011), Tazzy (2014), Zach (2015) and Zinny (2018). Having a young and active family keeps Rachel on her toes trying to find ways to keep the ship sailing while still meeting all the demands of motherhood. Though Rachel loves her most important role as Mommy most, she also works full time outside the home as a Water Resources Engineer for the Colorado Division of Water Resources. This role helps keep her life centered, bouncing from detailed and complex discussions relating to Colorado Water Law with her husband ( a mechanical engineer) to daycare and preschool drop off and pick up schedules, while being constantly interrupted by the equally complex musings of her 4 year.

  1. I will be in Colorado Springs this weekend and the temps are very warm according to Weather.com. We really want to go sledding! Is there any snow to do that without having to drive too far?

    • Unfortunately, there hasn’t been much snow since Christmas and it was in the 70’s this weekend, which is bazaar for February! But the rain today wiped out any chance you would have found for sledding within 30 miles of the Springs, unless someone knows of a spot in Woodland Park that is high enough. Sorry. 🙁
