Our work group is spread all over the globe so we spend extra time bonding when we are all in the same place. This year we planned a ski trip to Tahoe, even though the skiing conditions have been terrible all winter. We lucked out and got a great pile of snow just before the trip. The rental house in Tahoe Donner was big enough to house an Army, which was good because many folks brought their families too. The house also had an amazing view-no obstructions at all, and a bouncy house that fit in the downstairs living room!
Most everyone skied, but a friend and I spent the morning crafting and chatting. I took a quick break to build a snowman on the porch-perfect snow for it, dense and sticky. We lunched in historic downtown Truckee, across the street from the Amtrak station. We window shopped all the home furnishing, clothing and knickknack stores during the sunny afternoon. Nice and relaxing! Thanks to M for the great photos!
