This past week we received some snow, with much of it visibly sticking to the ground in the upper elevations around Lake Tahoe. Coupled with beautiful fall foliage and the smell of winter in the air, I am definitely getting the itch for some Sierra skiing.
This is a picture I took a couple of years ago doing some backcountry above Emerald Bay on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe.

Awesome pic! Perhaps you should become a pro ski photographer! That pic is so perfect it almost looks fake!
Thank you Lynnette! I have Lake Tahoe and the skier, Brad Lancaster to thank for it.
Dude – I’ve been checking out your blogs, your photo site, drinking a little whisky, & recalling many a great time. Hopefully global warming hasn’t become a reality & we’ll get some powder soon! I’m not sure if $600 for new skis is worth it in a warming trend….what would Wittman do?
Wittman would fashion a couple of tree limbs to his feet with some twine and then go drop the steepest line on the hill.
