Not that you would think these pictures are from around Reno if you were hanging out in the 63 degree weather we are having today -- but a mere couple weeks ago at the Squaw Valley Ski Area at Lake Tahoe, we were in "epic" blizzard conditions. (This was apparently the code word of the day up on the mountain.) Horizontal snow, fogging goggles and a new to us 'full-of-terrain' ski area made for an exciting day. Half of the huge mountain was closed down due to high winds and none of the runs had names (or skier level signs) but our coats kept us dry and our legs didn't give out. One of these days we will ski on a day where we can actually see the lake from the top!
