Its the holiday season on 2012 and Santa has brought some early gifts to the Tahoe region. Of course, your schedule this time of year is locked in stone but the weather pattern is not. As we approached the mountain, plumes of snow were jetting off all nearby peaks and chairs on wind-hold would be inevitable. Luckily chair 6 ran the entire day and I sadly...skied alone. I may have missed the deep pow but was greeted to bluebird skies, ripping snow, and a 4 year old attempting to carve.
