Saturday we woke up to snow!! It was just a few inches but it was SO nice to drive in our new AWD SUV 🚙 – it handled the snow so well!
The parking at Squaw on Friday was so crazy so Josh decided to ski at Alpine Meadows today. It was just snowing at first but as we got closer to the resorts, the snow turned to rain ☔️ We pulled into the Alpine lot right at 9am, when it opened, and already saw people leaving… apparently the rain and winds were so bad that hardly any of the mountain was open. We looked online and it looked like Squaw had more open lifts, so we drove 15 minutes north to check it out. The rain was getting worse and worse, but at least the parking lot wasn’t busy yet!
Because of the bad conditions, Josh just wanted to try to get a few runs in. Emily and I hung out in the Starbucks – she napped and I read 📚 Josh came back down less than two hours later – he was cold and soaked!! He changed into dry clothes and we headed home. We stopped in Sacramento to feed Emily and check out a neat brewery.
We got home around 7pm – a 38 hour trip! Though the skiing wasn’t great, it was fun to take a spontaneous trip with Emily! 👱👱♀️👶🐶🐶
