I'll have the usual, thanks

It snowed. Around 15 inches or so. There was a storm moving in and the Nevada basketball team was playing at 1:30. We didn't have a lot of time to piddle fart our way up a new hill. We had to get down to business. The storm came. The basketball team lost, badly.

The riding killed it.

Here's some photos. Apparently clicking on them gives you much bigger versions. At least on my computer.

Everybody in their own little world


Alright people, who am I chasin' first?


OK, I'll chase Jake first


This guy totally strapped in right in front of the lift


That was pretty sweet, I guess we should do that a few more times


Around the 3rd lap, we were getting cold and tired. You can still see Desolation Wilderness in the left hand corner. By the time we got back up, it'd be a little different.


Last one down's a rotten egg


Jake stoked I went first and took Dakota with me


By the time we got back up Jake and I were stoked on our perfect timing.


Right after I snapped this picture, put the camera in my pocket and buckled in for the ride out to the road, it was a blizzard.

Sarah didn't think our timing was as perfect as Jake and I did. She figured we were about 10 minutes late.

[whisper]she probably could have got out of bed 10 minutes earlier, or skipped her chai latte on the way up[/whisper]

We're supposed to get 2-3 feet through tomorrow. Fingers crossed.

Looking VERY nice in Nevada! I'm glad that slave-driver boss of yours sees to it you have enough R&R to exercise the dog. Well done!

Beautiful riding, splitter. Looks fantastic.

I think all tr's should have happy dogs in them.

I particularly like this shot:

Fantastic Splitter, keept the reports coming

While Bob's favorite is indeed a fine shot I've got to say that the dog chasing Jake is also mighty fine.

Thanks everybody. We were just lapping the usual spot we hit when we can't spend the whole day driving somewhere, hiking, and driving back. I just got lucky with some shots, especially considering the greybird flat light all day.

It's not, "Can I have the day off?"

It's, "You wanna save some money on payroll?"

Either way, he's off to Canada Tuesday, there might be some riding on a few mornings this week.

Yeah. Tahoe area. It's from Febuary of last year (post dates on thread). No snow like that just yet, but we've got a little bit falling up there right now.
