Snowed in at Tahoe

So I’m usually a beach person.

The week prior to our ski trip, we were watching the weather every day to check on upcoming storms. By Friday, we were relieved to see that the first of the storms had already passed, and the roads were clear for our arrival. This was the house we had booked through Airbnb - the place was enormous and uniquely built. The running joke was that there were only acute angles built throughout the house.

Saturday

We spent the day relaxing and playing in the snow as we do every year, taking pictures and walking down to the lake for “family photoshoot time.” Last year, we had 0 snow, so we took advantage of it this time.

We drove down to Carnelian Bay docks, watching the sun set as we snapped pictures and skipped rocks.

Sunday

What had initially started out as a ski trip ended up being a snow trip - on Saturday night, we heard news of the next storm coming in and threatening our excursion to Northstar. We decided to stay in and avoid the potential mess, and were treated to a flurry of snow in the morning.

Rest and Relaxation

Overall, not a bad way to spend the weekend in Tahoe: plenty of rest and relaxation (as well as a plethora of Ghirardelli brownies) before the busy work week ahead. Even now, we’re still getting storms in Tahoe to the point of whiteouts and road closures - looks like we prayed a little too hard this year from last year’s hiatus. We even got some snow back here in the Bay! Wish I could’ve driven up to snap a few before work…

Until next time.
