comfy blast up to tahoe for some R&R over the holidays.
snow was not of the epic variety, but first day storm did set-up a decent powder day and some residual niceness over the ensuing days.
we dialed into a stellar pad along the lake in king's beach, and so we spent our resort time at northstar. yeah, yeah, flatstar is a bit vertically challenged, but the backside is tasty on a board in good powder, and it holds the wind better than any other spot on the north shore.
and the sledding off of Rt. 267 rocks!
here are a few video clips from the action:
evening activities came in various shapes and sizes, from dinners on the town to stay-at-home movie nights.
the young-ins took to the sauce quite readily, a forboding sign of parental trauma to come.
and throw in one late night charge to nevada to check out steamboat willie and uncle ben at the hyatt casino and stir the pot a bit. the tables were lively, and the bar was livelier.
a serendipitous encounter with herman munster clinched the fun as we saddled up to the cutthroat saloon with a bunch of his crew.
good times all around.
except perhaps, for a run in with John Q. Law.
but even this worked out just fine, as the good men in blue were in a terse lecture/stern warning holiday mood.
ah ha, a nice way to bid farewell to '06 as we revved the engines to launch into '07...
