It was snowing on Sunday at Donner Ski Ranch but there wasn't any question about whether or not we would ski. We had a lot of fun, especially because we were skiing with our friends who live in Sacramento now. We first met when our kids were in nursery school together. This weekend the four boys were skiing/boarding together, while we parents went off and skied together (we can't keep up with them anyway). We just couldn't get over how cool it was that they were having fun hanging out together even though they don't live in the same town anymore and only see each other about once a year.
The weather improved on Monday and today it was much sunnier, so we could look east toward Donner Lake, and see all the other familiar landmarks like Crow's Nest and Castle Peak.
