Here are a few trip highlights.
First time at Northstar, an awesome place. Loved the Backside area. The photo was taken at the top of Comstock Express with a view of the cool clouds.
Demo skis for two amazing powder days, the Rossignol S3. I ended up buying them for a good deal and have never felt so good on skis. My hubby and friends demoed powder skis too.
So. Much. Snow. on Saturday morning. Wow! Someone even left us a smiley face on our car.
Fun times at Stateline Brewery for St. Patrick's Day. I loved this place and the balsamic-topped potato chips they give you before the meal are amazing.
Fabulous tree skiing in Aries Woods at Heavenly. This was my first time really discovering tree skiing, and it rocked!
A crazy drive home in the snow. It took us 4 hours to go the first 60 miles out of South Lake Tahoe, and visibility was pretty bad for some of it. Luckily, we have snow tires and driving in the snow doesn't bother us mid-westerners.
I had so much fun, and it was a great end to the ski season. I don't think we'll be back this year because my hubby and I are moving on to running races - it's time to get more serious about training and pushing the distance for the marathon.
I'm running the Oakland Half next weekend and the Santa Cruz Half the following weekend. I can't wait to race again - it's been too long - and I'm especially pumped to tell you all about Oakland in my race report!
