Sanctuaries in the Snow

The Alligator Pond (Snowmass)

There are some cut-out figures of alligators and palm/coconut trees by a small pond near the Fanny Hill run and underneath the Village Express Lift at Snowmass.  Two photos of the alligators are below.  Every year at the beginning of the ski season, a yellow scarf is tied around the neck of one of the alligators.  Click this link to read the story behind this tradition (and to also see more photos):
