Or, I could just travel an hour to Amador and El Dorado Wine Country, or 3-hours to Napa. Not my thing, but I don't have to drive to Atlantic City to waste time at casinos. It might be better to skip the ski area and go to Desolation or Mokulomne Wilderness areas or one of the 6 national forests here. A day trip to Yosemite; or maybe visit the Redwoods; or maybe with spring taking hold, go rafting on the American River. We could choose to take in Old Sacramento with great restaurants, the train museum; or ...well you get the idea. California has the good sense to have great snow in the mountains, and a pleasant climate along the coast and inland valleys. So, ski all day, come home and change into shorts, enjoy a glass of wine or beer and BBQ on the deck.
Mr- Zin-wine, of all people, you should know better than to throw down that gauntlet.
