Living in SF there is little to complain about weather wise. I do NOT miss the -20 degree mornings of the tundra or scraping ice and snow off the car every morning. But snow and seasons are hard to come by in the city by the bay. So Lake Tahoe is a welcome winter wonderland.
Last week my parents came out from Minnesota, my brother up from Santa Cruz and we headed up to Tahoe. As avid skiers this was my family's perfect trip. Hitting up three different mountains (Alpine, Squaw, and Northstar) while getting peeks of that majestic lake, we had a blast. Alpine was the family favorite. Miss this snow and those faces already!
