The tension had been building for sometime. Speculations and rumors were running rampant. Folks were threatening to move elsewhere, seek out other mountains that were covered in the white stuff that was conspicuously absent from our own. And then we all woke up last Friday morning to find both the mountains and the town covered in SNOW!!! Some of us headed towards Mt. Rose Meadows to see what we could find. There wasn't an infinite amount, but after waiting for months it was good to see a solid two feet of the stuff on the ground. Friday and Saturday were a bit stormy while Sunday was a one of those perfect bluebird days that makes winter so much fun. Here are a few shots from the weekend... Aren't skin tracks just gorgeous? On Saturday eight of us randomly came together back at the Meadows and headed up to Chickadee Ridge together. A few of us tried to make turns, but the tour was mostly about socializing and making sure we all remembered how ski/snowshoe uphill. Carrie and Amanda getting ready. McDevious taming one of the wild chickadees. Another mighty chickadee looking for a Black Diamond sponsorship. Tahoe through the trees.
