Alpine Meadows at Tahoe

Currently at Alpine Meadows in Tahoe in the lodge (yay for free wifi)... Yesterday it was packed here, but today the crowds have subsided. Unfortunately there is probably going to be an extremely long car ride back to Mountain View tonight (and then another hour and a half to Seaside).

So the guys are going back out but I'm not quite ready to get back into the snow storm! We drove up on Friday, stopping in Roseville. We slept in Cristin's living room and got on the road the next morning at about 7. One word: TRAFFIC!!!!!

We finally made it to Alpine around lunchtime, ate in their lodge, and then hit the slopes! Today was the first time I was able to experience fresh powder in a loooong time. I honestly can't even remember the last time the snow was that good. Needless to say, I was quite a bit more comfortable being reckless because there was 1. a soft landing and 2. I have health insurance! Wahoo! Danger! Okay, not really.

The ride to our hotel took us three hours, but it should have only been thirty minutes. Dumb!

- After a day of skiing, a person is realllly hungry.
- An unusually long drive to the hotel will make an already tired person VERY irritable.
- According to Aaron, Kit's brother:
Angry + Hungry = Hangry
- Me = Hangry.
- Q.E.D.

Alright, that may not have any qualities of a mathematical proof. Whatevs. After checking in at the charming CalNeva, we walked over to Crystal Bay Casino's yummy bistro. Kyle and I split the nachos and primavera pasta dish. The other guys got chicken sandwiches and burgers. I was impressed by all the food. It might be because of the "hangriness," but I thought this place was a little bit of a gem. They are eco-friendly, with utensils made of potatoes, and plates and cups made from sugar.

We made it back to CalNeva and changed into our swimsuits. The indoor spa was effin H O T. We're talking at least 106. I felt like a lobster!

I apologize for the rambling, but right now I'm in the back of the truck... we are driving back to the bay area and I'm kinda bored.
Today has been a lot better on the traffic front though! Ski conditions were great. I still think Saturday was a bit better, but I won't complain. Future trips are in the works so if anyone is interested, let me know!!
