Sarah Brede of Spokane went “tree skiing” near Thompson Pass on Sunday, bringing a fresh Christmas tree nearly 1,000 vertical feet back to the vehicle.

“We had a great day looking for a tree while making some powder turns,” said her husband, Mike Brede. The backcountry skiers made tracks for about four hours relishing the day and searching for the perfect tree.

“The $5 permit was well worth it!” Mike said.
