First Tracks at the Tahoe Cross Country Ski Area

Paul Smith said on November 21st, 2011 filed under: ACTIVITIES, COMMUNITY, LOCAL AREA PHOTOS, LOCAL NEWS, PLACES TO SEE

Actually I think they were the second tracks, but it sure was nice out there.

Today was my first day of skiing at the Nordic Center. The coverage was  a little light, but good enough to make it around the Green Loop. I saw another skier that told me he made it out to Silver. Kevin, at the Nordic Center, said if we get 6 inches out of the next storm he would start grooming. I hope to you see you out there this year.
