Starting this December, Antelope Butte Mountain Recreation Area will be hosting AmeriCorps members who will work on broadening access to outdoor activities and recreation for kids in Sheridan and Big Horn counties.

The mountain, located near Shell, reopened two years ago.

On an unusually warm Saturday at the Antelope Butte Mountain Recreation Area, I'm on top of the ski hill located in the middle of the Bighorn Mountain Range between Greybull and Sheridan, where the elevation is 9,400 feet. An avid skier, I start down a powdery run with evergreens and big boulders surrounding me.
