Squaw Valley Ski Resort

March 25, 2012

We took advantage of recent snowstorms to carve some turns at beautiful Squaw Valley Ski Resort. Taking the amazing gondola up to the top of the mountain, there was time to visit the Olympic Museum at High Camp where Monika could pretend she had just won the Women’s Downhill. I guess that should be a Swiss flag behind her. The view from the observation deck overlooking Lake Tahoe is worth the ride up, especially when you can ski all the way down. We could only wonder how this old sentinel managed to survive on a rock. If it could speak, what memories it must have of the changes since the 1960 Winter Olympics were staged here.

Finally, Winter has come to the California Sierras. We were quick to take advantage of the fresh powder at Squaw Valley.

The view from the observation deck reached by the Squaw Valley Gondola offers spectacular view of Lake Tahoe and the High Sierras.

Did Monika just win the Olympic Women's Downhill?

We can only wonder how this sentinel survived for decades on top of the mountain on top of the rock. Surely, the caption must be "Tenacity".
