Alpine Rocks!

February 24, 2004

Lake Tahoe

It’s been a good long while since I’ve been downhill skiing, at least five years if I’ve counted right. I’m not sure how it came to pass that it’s been that long, other than I’ve been very busy evangelizing J2ME. Anyway I’ve been getting the skiing “itch” of late and I wanted to try out some non-ski gear on the slopes, so I convinced mi esposa that the time was right and we headed up to Lake Tahoe last weekend.

Squaw Valley

We took the cable car to High Camp at Squaw Valley and the gondola up to the Deck at Heavenly, but when it came time to hit the slopes, I went with my favorite, Alpine Meadows.

Why Alpine? Great snow, nice views of the lake (from both the front and the back sides, as long as you get up high enough), $39 full day lift tickets (cheaper than many Tahoe resorts’ half day tickets), and best of all, all the skiing and boarding you want without the distractions of most of the other resorts. If all of that weren’t enough, check out how much mountain you get without the overcrowding you see in so many other places:
