Heavenly it was

This is where Go Postal and I were last week. We took our annual ski trip with WSSOC, this year to Lake Tahoe. We had three days at Heavenly (above) a day at Northstar and a day at Sierra. On our day off from skiing we took a tour of the lake on a Paddleboat....the Captain even let me drive! I fought a bad cold all week so didn't get in as long of days skiing as I would have liked but it is still better to have a cold in Lake Tahoe than have a cold at work! They were unseasonaly warm (upper 40's most days) but they have such a huge snow base that they got the slopes in great shape overnight. They actually till the snow to break up any ice that forms when it re-freezes over night then run the groomers to get the runs back in tip top shape for the next day.

I will post some more pictures when I get them uploaded off my big camera. Now my Valentine has caught the cold so after the quilt guild meeting tonight I will have to rush home and do some pampering.

For all you readers that ski (or want to learn).... next year the club is headed to Jackson Hole, Wyoming!

I want to go next year but fear it may prove too challenging for my novice skills! What a gorgeous backdrop there in Tahoe! Feel better~
