2017/09/21 Offsite at Northstar in a Snow Storm

We had a company offsite where we were supposed to kayak on the lake, and the next day, I was supposed to have my first shot at downhill mountain biking at a ski resort. Well, things did not quite turn out that way due to weather that brought us the first snow of the year, up to 3 inches in some places...

it was nice enough when we arrived

We took a shuttle to the lake/beach and had a late lunch there, felt like a swell idea at the time, until a snow storm happened and we barely got back to the ski resort:

The next morning, I was hopeful that I'd be able to mountain bike, but the terrain was just too snowy/muddy, so it wasn't meant to be. Instead I went on a short guided hike:





After playing games for the rest of the day, Arturo came to pick me up and we went to Topaz Lake for our 4 day backpacking trip the new day
