The Tahoe Ski Trip that Finally Happend

Readers may be beginning to notice a pattern in my blogging...

football in fall, vacations in the summer, and skiing in the winter!

The Mr. and I just got back from a long weekend trip to Tahoe. We'd had to cancel our planned Tahoe trip a couple weeks ago due to storms, but last weekend the weather cooperated and we got to spend three amazing days on the slopes!

Day One: Northstar-at-Tahoe

Together at the top...


The Mr's boss called him and wanted him to submit some electronic report. This is him saying, "uhhh, I'm on a black diamond on the backside of Northstar, I can't really get to my computer right now."

Note: I think it's very rude for a boss to call someone when they know he/she is on vacation unless it's a super urgent matter.

Day Two: Alpine Meadows

This is the only picture I have because it was snowing that whole day and I didn't want to wreck my camera.



Day Three: Homewood

How freakin' amazing is this view!?


The Mr. at Homewood. I wish I could build a ski cabin right here!

In addition to three wonderful days skiing we had a couple of fun dinners out in the Tahoe area, including a delicious and romantic dinner at Cottonwood in Truckee. If you're ever in North Lake Tahoe you have to check this place out!

What's our next ski adventure? Breckenridge, Colorado in three weeks!

When I started getting comfortable on my snowboard, I began reaching inside my jacket and answering my phone, too. I can remember being on the phone with my boss and how shocked she was to hear the "whoosh, whoosh" in the background. Ha!

And I agree, it's rude to call OR email when on vacation. I really need to learn to ditch my blackberry because it makes me crazy to be laying out by the pool or on the slopes reading nonsense!

oh my gosh that looks so fun! I'm totally jealous . . . and my husband would be even more jealous - he's desperate to go skiing somewhere beautiful and not just in North Carolina!

Heather said...

Gorgeous views there!

Nicole said...

Ams said...

Those pictures of the scenery are absolutely stunning!!! And you two are stinkin' cute!

Chelsi said...

Absolutely amazing views! Neither Hubbs or I ski/snowboard regularly and I'm currently way too out of shape to attempt it. However, Tahoe is one of the top places that I want to visit. I just love those views! Absolutely stunning!

That lake view is amazing! So beautiful. I want to go on a ski vacation with the husband sometime. I haven't skied since high school sadly!

Jules said...

It looks like you had a wonderful trip! Good for your husband for saying he was busy. I think it’s incredibly rude for work to call when they know that you’re on vacation too (unless it’s extremely important).

The view at Homewood is incredible. You two look so cute together out on the slopes!

Mrs. Newlywed Giggles said...

Looks like you had a blast! I've never been skiing, I'm so afraid! But I have been snow mobilling which was really fun! Glad you were able to get to the mini vacation after all!

I love Homewood, it is where I learned how to ski!! We have a cabin 5 minutes from there.

My sis and her bf were probably at Northstar the same day you were!
