California skiing

(in response to thread:  Miss my skiing days in CA... Squaw Valley, K2... ah to be young
 again, eh? :-)


My god.

My old stomping grounds, except I spent most of my time one valley
over at Alpine Meadows. Got snowed in there in 1967. It was up to the
third story of the little Alpine Chalet hotel I was staying in. We
had lots of food and stuff, but no transportation. One guy, who
didn't understand powder, decided he was going to walk to town, put
on some bear paw snowshoes, stepped off the third floor balcony and
sank out of sight. We had to lower someone on a rope to pull him back

Yep. To be young again.
