In early february, we went skiing to Lake Tahoe, California. This was probably the most beautiful place we have been so far. The area boasts the lake, snow-covered mountains, and curvy roads fenced by evergreens. It alse glimpses over the desert scenery of Nevada.
Awesome ski ares are Squaw Valley and Kirkwood. Heavenly is great for taking pictures and enjoying groomed trails. The snow conditions were less than perfect. When we got there, the locals complained of the worst season they remember and some trails were closed. Towards the end of the week we got a few feet of snow. I wished I could ski deep powder. We also scraped our skis while going over sharp rocks covered with 3 feet of soft powder.
Anyway, a few pictures are available.
