Let It Snow

Deck View

it doesn't just snow in tahoe. it dumps. we're not talking a few inches here, a few inches there. we're talking a few FEET here, a few FEET there [pic above is from our deck overlooking the lake - table and chairs totally buried].

and this past holiday week provided a quintessential tahoe blizzard. it snowed hard. really hard. every day. check out the snowfall tracker on the squaw website.

6 Feet Under

yep, that's right. close to six feet fell at the top of squaw over a three day period.


the powder riding was spectacular. almost too much powder in some places. made boarding on some of the flatter areas a challenge. bury the nose, and you found yourself hiking out of the trees. and, take note, if you haven't done it before, waking in chest high snow is a work out.

the tops of alpine and squaw were closed a few days because of high winds, but the better part of northstar was open most days, and the backside tree runs there were premo.

a collection of the Bojon crew caught up for dinner as we ushered in the new year.

New Years '05

we also got a chance to expose lady Bojon to the snow for the first time. she liked the taste of it.

First Snow

let's hope for more of the white fluffy stuff as the winter season continues...

White Xmas
