A Day at the Races
Just in time for spring, winter has arrived in Tahoe. We’ve seen a significant amount of precipitation in the mountains these past few weeks—not all of it has been the powdery stuff we prefer, but this last weekend at Alpine Meadows, it was mostly snow, and we had the some of the best conditions of the season.
Gail and I headed up to the Inskier cabin for the weekend. We picked up David Baird and arrived at the cabin late Friday evening after a forced stop at In-N-Out Burger near Sacramento. David loves In-N-Out Burgers. Brian B was already at the cabin. Gary D arrived with two guests the next day, and we had another companionable Saturday evening with a fine dinner prepared by Gary, Gail and David. We uncorked 6 bottles of red wine. We used the white wine for the carbonara.
Gary recounted his adventures at Burning Man, igniting a spark of an idea for a future Inskier adventure…maybe.
David, Brian, Gail and I headed to Alpine Meadows for the GS races on Sunday.
Conditions were blustery, but most of the mountain was open with a great variety of terrain. I skied with Gail, Brian, David and Kristi W (who snowboarded with us after winning the morning demolition derby event at the Snowdrifter cabin), and we saw groomers, tree skiing, heavy powder, and chop.
It was Gail’s first foray into racing for our club. She placed second in her category, but had the finest form with her Euro-platform technique. I think she enjoyed herself.
All in all, a good weekend at Tahoe. Even the return traffic was not too bad.
