Winter reigns through May

It’s still winter here in Truckee. A fresh two inches dropped on the front lawn yesterday afternoon and there’s certainly more up on the mountainsides. My biker buddies are bummed. I’m not worried about winter not leaving the building. I’m worried that Ol’ Man Winter won’t feel welcome when we want him to come back in October.

Here’s to freshies this weekend, whether that be in Tahoe, Mt. Shasta, the Sierra, or the Rockies. Don’t leave snow to find snow, and don’t leave snow for a cold beach either. When the weather says it’s winter, it’s time to ski! ;)

    There’s also plenty of snow in the Cascades! We’re still open at Crystal Mountain, with plenty of lift-accessed hike-to. Viva la winter. But I know what you mean about next year. It makes me just a little nervous…
