Real snow at Heavenly!
As we drove up to South Lake Tahoe it poured with rain. Julia and I
were hopeful that the rain would turn to snow as we climbed higher
into the mountains.
However, it just kept falling as we pulled
into the driveway of our friends Scott and Dina's home in South Lake
Tahoe. We made ourselves comfortable and talked about not going out
skiing the next day if it was still raining. No sooner had the words
left our lips and the rain turned to lovely, white, fluffy snow! It
did not stop snowing all night until the next morning. Yippee!

Even Nevada was covered in snow.
The sky was overcast when we woke, but there was no wind and lots and
lots of fresh snow. So Julia and I rugged up and headed out to the
slopes. Interestingly the last time we skied at Heavenly it was on
And last week in Canada the snow conditions were
the same. So it was fantastic to be skiing on real soft snow. All of
the hard edging we had been forced to make while skiing the icy
conditions helped us both improve our skiing on the soft stuff.
Julia really is starting to feel comfortable and looking more and
more like a pro-skier every outing. We skied all day until the lifts
closed then dragged ourselves back to Scotts; tired but satisfied of
a good day of skiing.

The snow bunny.
We woke up to sunshine this morning. No new snow had fallen, but it had
remained cloudy all night which helped keep the snow soft. However,
the wind had picked up a bit.
Back out for another day on the slopes. Strangely
the California side of Heavenly was sunny all day and the Nevada
side was in cloud all day. So Julia and I could move in and out of
sunshine at will; and we did.
The was a great was a fantastic ski trip.
