    Happy new year, everyone! It was that rare time when we were to see snow again! It's been years since I've seen snow in person. Me and my parents went up to the Boreal Mountain Resort around Soda Springs, CA to see our first snow in person in a long time. I wish we came here around Christmas since there was fresh powder on the ground and on the trees after a storm system came thru on Christmas Eve (Dec 2014). We went when all the snow was on the ground only. Still better than nothing! Knowing that there won't be any new storms to add fresh snow to the Sierras in many days to come, it was a good thing that we went! Snow cover was already diminishing and it turns out that we went when the weather was at its warmest so far this month of January 2015...reaching up into the lower to mid 50s even for here in Boreal! Talk about rushing to hurry to see the snow before they all melt away! We left a bit late since I had slept in lol. The drive was like over 3 hours and we arrived to the place like around 3 p.m. By the way, we also stopped by a Subway in Colfax, CA to eat our late lunch. More info for the place: Boreal Mountain Resort is a ski area in Soda Springs, near the Lake Tahoe area of California. Located on Highway 80, West of Truckee, Boreal typically is the first area to open for skiing and snowboarding in Northern California. Anyways, once we arrived, we parked a bit easily since there was a lot of parking. Always best to go after the holidays! We didn't really do much since we were short on daylight as well. The main highlight was that we went snow tubing. Only my parents went since I was scared lol. We stayed around the area and played with the snow as well until the tubing area closed. Too bad we didn't go in the skiing area since we needed tickets to get into that area of the resort. We called it a day and then left Boreal around sunset. While along I-80 headed westward, we saw the beautiful sunset thru the high clouds. It was a nice ending to a short afternoon in the snow! It was then another 3+ hours back home... However, while around the Sacramento area, we got caught in heavy traffic. Looks like the typical evening commute for that area and we missed our exit to highway 99. But we just stayed on I-5, headed southward and just did the Stockton way to finish off the rest of the road trip home... Although it was a short (and tiring) outing, we had fun playing in the snow!

            10/13/13. Powerful start to a scary finish. May have different hands/feet for start since there was a large block that fell off. I had to move it to get my feet on.
