Today we went downhill skiing at Northstar-at-Tahoe, a huge resort near Truckee! It was snowing all afternoon and a lot of fresh powder fell on the ski runs. We were skiing in powder that was knee deep. Half the time, we couldn't see our skis because they were under a bunch of snow! It was a crazy blizzard, and snow and ice froze on my scarf (see picture).

Skate skiing is so much more fun than the classic style! Today was our first time trying it out, and I was hooked within the first 10 minutes.


Today we took a free skate skiing lesson at Tahoe XC and rented skate skis for the day. It was so much fun, and it snowed all day!

While snowshoeing, there were flocks of Mountain Chickadees following us all through the forest. They kept flying and swooping down towards us, and landing on our heads and hands! When we had lunch, they were all over us! It was so much fun!


Romy 3.22.2011

Today we went snow shoeing in Nevada near Incline Village and we were being swarmed by some really crazy and playful Mountain Chickadees. They flew and handed on your hand if you held it out!

Today, the pooping tiger had two hula hoops around him when I came out of the building to go home. I wonder who did it this time, and who eventually removes it. Who is the pooping tiger's keeper!?
