Conquering the Icy Hill of Terror

Since Colorado was so successful last year, we decided to start a little tradition and head to Tahoe for New Years! The drive up was fine, the snowing didn't start until our first day on the slopes at Alpine Meadows (which gave nice powder the next two days). After my attempt last year, I have given up on my dreams of becoming a fearless snowboarder and am now focusing on becoming a decent skier. I lived on the blue runs, which proved to be difficult for me, but I did improve greatly on my parallel skiing which was my goal for the weekend! Jesse's friend's uncle (did you follow that?) allowed us the use of his cabin and it was gorgeous and comfortable, I definitely felt spoiled. It was nice to just relax after a long day on the slopes in the hot tub, followed by a homemade dinner and card game or movie. This is definitely becoming a great yearly tradition and I can't wait until next year!
