If you've been anywhere near a T.V. or computer during the last 24 hours, you know there's a storm headed to Tahoe. Yahoo!
It's all any of us can talk about and no doubt there will be plenty of "sick" calls to the office in the coming days.
Snow lovers have already been flocking to Northstar this season to experience the stellar conditions the park groomers have created, as described so beautifully by Buzz Dispatcher Kate Thomas. It's about time Mama Nature threw in her goodness.
If your legs aren't quite ski or board ready, I have the perfect "tone 'em up" event for you this coming weekend
- the Snowshoe Social and Race Series at Northstar California.
Anyone who's snowshoed knows it's a great workout. Now imagine picking up the pace and racing through the snow in a friendly competition! The series features three events, but what I love about the January 22 race is it's in conjunction with the Tahoe Rim Trail Tour and Race.
It's a point-to-point 21k from the North Tahoe High School to Northstar Cross-Country Ski, Telemark & Snowshoe Center.There will also be classic and skate divisions taking place at the same time. Atlas Snowshoe will be on hand as well to demo their products at the Cross-Country Center.
For all the details on the event - registration, start times, event charity proceeds and rental opportunities - head to Northstar Calfornia's events calendar.
And to all of you shakin' what your mama gave you to entice the snow gods - thank you. I can't wait to hear the snow reports!
