Not your typical mid July day. Six of us met up at Blue Lake just north of Kirkwood to ski the Forestdale Divide. The six included Trekchick, DSloan, Dookey, 4Ster, Stev (from TGR) and yours truly.
DSloan was going to be in town for a family mountain bike trip in Downieville and through some PM's we convinced her to come in a few days early under the premise of skiing..she bit and experienced her first back country day eveh. We convinced Dookey to guide us and asked Stev to join us since these guys know these areas the best and at the last minute 4Ster decided to join us for this killer day on snow.
We started with a 3/4 mile like in to ski a couple of chutes. Here are the pics:

DeAnn soooo glad she came to Tahoe to experience some of the best July skiing we had to offer.
Thank you everyone who came out with us and helping us show DeAnn a great time.
