When I returned from the coast, it was snowing. My sister still had one more stop on her California tour and that was Tahoe – so we headed out for an easy backcountry tour to Elephants Back off Carson Pass when the storm broke.
Feels so great to be on skis in the mountains

Happy after making creamy October turns.
Surfing and skiing in the same week! AWESOME!
A photo from our Shasta trip was the “Extreme Photo of the Week” in National Geographic.

Nice photos Patrick Orton!
We had a rowdy Kirkwood storm day – only chair 6 was open, but that was all we could hope for. It probably snowed over a foot while we were skiing between 9 and 2 and the winds were howling. I got frostbite on my face… in California. Seriously.
Anyway my GoPro died on me early… maybe I didn’t charge it? Still figuring it out. Here is a short clip.
