Couldn't let the series of winter sports venues continue without a shout out to our local winter sports haven, Lake Tahoe.
Lake Tahoe is home to multiple ski areas including Heavenly and Kirkwood near South Lake Tahoe, and North Star, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Tahoe Donner, and Mt. Rose near North Shore. I've skied (if you can call it that) at Heavenly, Kirkwood, North Star, Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows. Each has its own appeal - some are best for families, others are best for advanced skiers, others are favored by snow boarders over skiers. Even if you don't ski or board, or prefer to visit Lake Tahoe during other seasons, it's a very cool place to go.
When I found these postcards, they brought up a host of memories. One I sent to myself from a ski trip over a long weekend we took with three other families; one was sent from a family/business weekend (aka a boondoggle to which I got to bring my husband and kids).
