Time In Tahoe

Every year my family makes the trek up to the house in South Lake Tahoe.  It seems like we always get the most wonderful weather when we are there.  This year we had blue skies the entire time, and about 5 feet of fresh powder on the ground.  

We did a little snowshoeing.

Arrow has figured out that it is much easier to walk on the back of my show shoes rather than sink into the snow up to his chest.  As you can imagine, I don't take too kindly to having to lift his weight and mine through the snow.  

The decks of the house offer some luscious scenery.

My mother, grandmother and I went up to Northstar for lunch at the Ritz Carleton one day.  The lunch was spectacular and so was taking the gondola down to Northstar Village.  
The village and the Ritz are set up in a ski in, ski out fashion.  The gondola goes right over the ski runs and the restaurant is at the bottom of one of the smaller runs.  They also have a pretty cool half pipe.

Driving home through the Nevada side of the lake offered some wonderful views. 

All told, it was a spectacular vacation.
