Lake Tahoe is finally in spring mode. Mid-60s during the days and mid-30s at night. What a relief to not have to shovel snow or drive through storms anymore. I am a little saddened by the change in seasons, but I think those feelings are born out of having gotten used to the brutal winter. I may be experiencing some type of Stockholm Syndrome thing. I think I’ll find a way to manage. Besides, there’s still tons of snow in the backcountry.
I plan to get in some backcountry cross-country ski sessions, but I have a lot of work to complete in the next couple weeks. At this point I’ve reached 83 total cross-country ski days and feel great about that, no matter what happens in the future. I still have a few requirements in order to become PSIA certified as a level 1 cross-country ski instructor, but I should be able to wrap them up at the beginning of next season. Some parting winter shots from March and April.
