Finally, a day with good weather and new snow, and it’s spring break. Went cross-country skiing at Tahoe Meadows, up to “Chickadee Ridge”, named for these birds, which are aggressive and wanting a handout. The snow was great, about 2 ft of fresh powder, tough for breaking trail but nice for downhill.
