Report from December 30, 2021

Yesterday we skied 1 of the most gorgeous places on Earth.

Lakes on top of lakes, peaks on top of peaks, and some of the most striking granite formations we’ve seen anywhere.

The snow was wind-pressed and tricky in spots (hear me grunting?), but we were still able to go fast and zip around a bit!

The wind really got ripping when we were up on the ridge and it was exquisite to feel California flex full winter upon us 😃❄️.

After the ski, we went to Dam Cafe in Tahoe City, CA and ate the bacon burritos with eggs in them and they’re exquisite…

200+ inches of snow in Tahoe in December has been absolutely wild and we’re drinking in every drop 💧.

Thanks, Tahoe!
