Cheers to snow

Champagne on the slopes at Northstar

For years, my family has talked about skiing out West, and ever since Ben and I moved to California, my dad has been planning to come out and ski with us. This year, he bought plane tickets and then we had one of the driest years on record (currently, our snowpack is only 27% of average). He almost cancelled his trip, but luckily he didn't, because somehow the skiing still managed to be fantastic. We skied five days in total — one at Northstar, one at Heavenly and three at Kirkwood. Ben compiled our GoPro footage into a fantastic video, but for starters, here are a few photos.

Tahoe is beautiful
Thunder Saddle is exhausting
