Ski Trip 2011

It's been a few years but the annual ski trip resumed this year in Lake Tahoe.  The Yared, Koon, Strand, and Retchless families headed from our respective homes to the North Shore for good food, wine, company, and skiing.  

The killer dining room table.  So many great dinners had here!
The skiing was a bit crazy this year.  Day 1: normal, decent March snow.  Day 2: 14"+ of fresh powder. It was amazing! Day 3: Rain.  Ugh.  According to my dad it was snowing at the top but we opted to skip paying for the lift ticket and enjoyed lunch at the Brasserie, a nap, and more family time.  Day 4: EPIC.  Unfortunately, Scott and I didn't get to ski in the 20" of fresh snow.  It was a travel day for us back home to SF and our pomeranians.  Pretty much a giant bummer.  I guess we'll have to go again soon!

There is a Rav 4 in there somewhere.  This was the scene before we headed back to SF.

So here we are, back in reality preparing for work tomorrow.  Always good to be home but already missing all the quality family time. 

Happy snow couple!
