Sunday morning began with more fresh SNOW.
This morning I went to the Tahoe City Cross Country Ski Area, located in the Highlands near Tahoe City. There were several excited people there just waiting for the groomers to get started. The driveway had been plowed and the shop employees were setting up the store and rental department. I’m not sure if the center is officially open but there were quite a few people standing around with their skis.
Everyone seemed very busy, so I thought I should give them a few hours to get set up.
I got back to the center with my snowshoes around 1:00pm and I saw several people skiing on the freshly groomed trails. I put on my snowshoes, a big grin and headed out across the fresh powder. After about the first ten feet of snowshoeing I could not believe how deep the snow was. Every step was like picking up a shovel full of snow with my foot and throwing it in front of me. I told myself, “I’m not going to stop until I get to the first warming hut”, so on I went. After about an hour I arrived at the spot where I knew the warming hut should be, but it was not there yet. I decided I’d gone far enough, so I turned around and headed back.
On the way back I saw more people skiing and having a great time. If you decide to go snowshoeing tomorrow, I broke a great trail for you.
