2013 is the first winter that we haven’t gone to our cabin in Mazama. We were lucky enough to get a week at our timeshare in Genoa, NV – just outside of Lake Tahoe – for the week after Christmas so away we went to visit with Ron, Jill and Claire Lindsay, get some skiing in and celebrate the New Years at the oldest Thirst Parlour in Nevada.
Sadly, the snow was pretty weak so we only ski’d one day at Heavenly. There is a ton of terrain there so we can definitely see how great it would be WITH snow. We did spend a day at Pyramid Lake, spent a day in town at South Shore Tahoe, enjoyed some great food and company, lots of time in the David Walley’s Hot Springs/Sauna and enjoyed the sunny, fabulous weather.
We ended up coming back two days early – one day from leaving a day early and one day from driving all 14 hours in one day instead of breaking it into two days. We had a great meal at McMiniman’s on the Vancouver side of the Columbia. It was a long day, but worth the drive.
Below are some pics from the trip. We’ll continue to add images to this slideshow as they come in from different cameras and phones.
