Chef Sharon Ashburn, left and Wendy Mark, of the catering company Stay at Home Chef, clean the kitchen of the historic Ferry Carpenter home Sunday at the Carpenter Ranch's annual Chilli Ski Day. The kitchen was added on to an exterior wall, and the original siding of the Carpenter home is still visible at left. Visitors to The Nature Conservancy's Carpenter Ranch enjoyed chilli, cross-country skiing and a presentation about conservation efforts on the Yampa River. Yampa River Project Director Geoff Blakeslee said no one can remember when the Carpenter Ranch started hosting the Chilli Ski Day, but "there's been at least 15 of them."
