I hadn't been to Tahoe since we went last year with friends
(and it was ELEVEN years since I had skied before then!)...
and guess what?!...
I went skiing last week, and I did a black diamond run!
It was exhilarating and terrifying all in one.
And, a very proud accomplishment for this novice skier!
Let me back up a bit...
last week, our entire HR department went up to Tahoe for a work offsite.
It was a quick trip.
We drove up on Wednesday and came back Friday afternoon.
It was great to get out of the office with the team for a couple of days.
And, thankfully we didn't do any of those cheesy "trust fall"-type team building activities...
we did ski, dance, gamble and laugh together!
(Not that I thought we would do any of that cheesy stuff... our team just isn't like that.)
The weather definitely felt more like Spring Break than a ski trip!
By lunchtime, my ski coat (that I got at Rummage Sale) was off,
and I was just wearing a fleece and tank top.
After lunch, we sat in the sun and I peeled off another layer and just sat it my tank top.
I usually run cold, so for me to be sitting there in a tank top - you know it was warm!
I just love Spring Skiing!
After a day of skiing, we had a big team dinner at Stateline Brewery...
Then we went to an Irish Pub across the street...
and had a lot of fun dancing and being silly and winning raffle prizes from the bar.
Then those of us that felt lucky spent some time at the casino.
I love playing blackjack and ended up leaving richer than when I started playing - cha-ching!
Such, such a fun trip.
(And, now I want to get a season pass for next year! Eek!)
Just one last selfie in my pretty new ski coat...
