Yellowstone Skate Ski Hat

image

The valleys surrounding the Grand Teton Mountains in Wyoming are home to a variety of wildlife typified in the American West. Wolves, mountain lions, lynx, big-horn sheep, elk, prong horn, mule deer, moose, and of course the mighty American bison roam the Yellowstone Valley and beyond. Snow comes early in the year and stays late, creating a powdery playground for the locals and visitors from around the world. Nordic skiing is a huge pastime in this area and hundreds of miles of trails are groomed for classic Nordic cross country skiing as well as Nordic skate skiing. This hat is topless to keep an active woman from getting over-heated, but knitted with 100% bison wool to keep her ears toasty warm even in below freezing condition!
