2014/01/30 A couple of days in Alpine
π 2014-01-30 00:00 in Snow
Thanks to a company ski trip, I got to go to North Lake Tahoe at the end of January.

Unfortunately caltrans has been making people put chains even if there is no snow on the road, it took us forever to get there and then because conditions at Squaw were so bad despite the recent snow, I went to Alpine, but that took another 1h+ due to the inefficient shuttle system. In the end, I was at the top of the first lift around noon.

mmh, I think I got a bit lost out of bounds, my only way down was in powder.

The next morning, I went back with some coworkers. Thanks to sucky transortation and Squaw sucking, it took us a mere 1h15 to get to Alpine and we missed first chairs and new overnight snow. Grr...
