I had a wonderful time visiting the Sierra Nevada mountain range this
winter. Lake Tahoe and Mammoth were both having fantastic winters, well
over their “normal” snowfall totals.
It was also great to see and spend time visiting with my old running
partners, Rob, Tai and Ken.
I have to say that I was most impressed with the central Sierra, with
its 5000 foot vertical rise off of the valley floor and endless ridges.
Thank you again to the Krystofiak's and Karen Schwartz for their warmth
snowboard trip to Lake Tahoe was a resounding success. Rob, Tai and I had
a wonderful time! The snow conditions varied from spring like (sunny
days, crusty snow), Northwest like (raining), to Utah like (sunny knee
deep powder). As always, the Krystofiak’s treated me like family. I’m looking forward to doing it again next year.

I had a
fantastic first visit to the central Sierra Nevada mountain range with Ken.
We rode Mammoth for two days and spent a day in the back country, hiking
"Old man bowl". (Needless to say my lungs suffered at the 10,000
foot altitude.) Ken's friend Karen played guide to us, showing us
the Mammoth ski resort and back country outside of Bishop as only a local
can. I had a great time, and can't wait to visit those gorgeous
mountains again someday.
