Mammoth – March 2011

February 23rd, 2014 by

Well, this would be, you know, a weekend ski trip with some people – it’s really never a bad time to go up to the Eastern Sierra. Definitely a fun weekend. I went cross country skiing in Mammoth, downhill skiing at June Lake, and got over to stare at the tufa at Mono Lake twice in one weekend. Outstanding!

Mt. Baldy – February 27, 2011

February 12th, 2014 by

Today we had a housing inspection. That’s one step closer to buying a house, I imagine? Anyway, there was plenty of snow there, so, it’s time to talk about snow, right?

Nathan and Jason were going skiing at Mt Baldy, and I decided I wanted to go outside as well! So I took the opportunity to go with them, but to try out snowshoeing up in that area. I rented some snowshoes the day before, and that morning we drove out to the mountain. It was really quite lovely, with a lot of snow decorating all the area. We were able to park fairly close to the ski area, and then took the lift up. I’d never been up the Baldy lift, so that was kind of cool in and of itself. It was a pretty long ride up, and it was fairly cold, but there were some great views, and it was really spectacularly clear and beautiful up top.
