Ski & Snow Bunnies…

Today we suited up and hit the slopes! This post doesn’t have any culinary notes, but I did want to share the experience since it was our first time.

We went to Mt. Rose ~ which is Lake Tahoe’s highest base (elevation 8,260 ft) with gorgeous panoramic views of Lake Tahoe and Nevada. Here’s a peek of Nevada from the ski resort:

Here we are in front of one of the slopes:

My husband Louis took a snowboarding lesson for the first time… and it was a lot harder than it looks:

And he thought he did well (but deep down I know he was in pain!):

While I took a ski lesson for the first time. I initially didn’t want to but figured I should take the opportunity! It was quite challenging getting used to the skis but I still managed to have fun:

It was a great time and quite an experience. I highly recommend folks to try skiing or at least taking a lesson!

Lake Tahoe Awaits!

Today my husband and I took a winter vacation to Lake Tahoe with our friends, Kim & Scott. It was the first time for us to visit Tahoe and we loved it!
Lake Tahoe is a freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada, located where the borders of the California and Nevada bend. Approximately two-thirds of the shoreline is in California. The area, referred to as Tahoe, is full of ski resorts and summer outdoor recreation.We stayed in Kings Beach, which is an area of Tahoe located in the northern California side of the lake. It was a beautiful place close to a few ski resorts and a short drive to Reno, and neighboring towns like Truckee and Incline Village.
The sunsets are breathtaking and these pictures can never capture the true beauty:
If you ever get the chance, do visit Lake Tahoe. We enjoyed our visit and loved being surrounded by nature, far away from the daily stresses.
