tahoe

The last time I went to Tahoe, it was in 2004, and all I did snowshoe by myself into the woods. Don't worry; I came back.

This time, I went with a few FX mentor friends (and friends of friends) and cross-country skied instead.

While some of us were bummed that we left the Bay Area just as some record highs were rolling through, the gorgeous weather followed us out to South Lake Tahoe. Being Superbowl weekend, Heavenly was pretty underpopulated. This also meant that we got free upgrades for our rooms at the resort.

We actually spent a relatively mild Saturday evening playing board games. On Sunday, the boys went snowboarding, and I took the ladies cross-country skiing at Camp Richardson. The area hasn't had enough snow (there were quite a few wet/icy spots on the trails), and the guys at the sports center were concerned that they would have to close for the season if they didn't get some more snowfall within a week.

Regardless, everyone seemed to have fun, no one broke any bones (Colin came closest with his semi-twisted ankle), and the Packers won the Superbowl. Huzzah.
