All work and no play makes Ruff Wear a dull company.  So, in true Ruff Wear fashion, we traded our Grip Trex™ boots for snow boots and closed up the office for a February 25th ski day.   The trip was an enjoyable and amazing experience for all, giving us a chance to reconnect with the outdoors.  Each employee was given the option to alpine, cross-country, or skate ski.  Some were experts, daring to ski backcountry down the back side of Mt. Bachelor, while others tried to keep their balance learning a new sport.
