I woke up early in the morning, and my daughter was still in asleep. After three hours and two hundred miles drive, I was on the slope again. I skipped the last ski season so I had seen any snow for two years. It was great to go skiing again. It was a weekday, so everything was nice. No crowds. No line to wait. I only wished the snow could be better. It is a dry winter here in North California. We do not get much snow this season yet. The snow was firm but some groomed trails was decent.
I stayed mostly on the groomed trails. I started about 9:50 am and had a few runs on blue trails to warm myself up. After my hamburger lunch, I tried a few black diamond run which would be a lot more fun if the snow was better.
The mountain was quite and beautiful. This trip was probably the first time I saw Lake Tahoe from Alpine Meadows. Previous few trips to Alpine Meadows were cloudy and windy, but the snow was really awesome. Yesterday was a different day. It was a nice sunny day and it was more like a spring day than a winter day although it was still in January.
Since it was a weekday, I did not have to wait inline for getting on a lift. I was just skiing down and getting on lift again and again with only a few short lunch and water breaks in between. At the end, my upper leg muscles started to cramp and it forced me to take some sport drink to continue. After that, I decided to stay just in blue runs to enjoy the mountains and the snow in a relax way.
On the way back, there was a traffic jam around Sacramento, so I stopped by a Frys to see what newest electronics toy in the market. Well, I did not find a lot of exciting stuffs there. Anyway, I got home by 8:20 pm and I felt that the life was nice again.
