In the world of Art, Plein Air is an expression from the French which means “in the open air,” and is used to describe the act of painting outdoors.

  Leon “Slim” Weston. A Grand Targhee legend will be greatly missed. The famous backrubs and comforting smile he gave in lift lines cannot ever be replaced.
