Engagement ski with Sam (and Presto, of course) at Hope Valley :-)! Tahoe got TONS of snow this week, so we decided to head out for a fun weekend! Apparently we were not the only ones to have this thought, so instead of taking about 3.5h to get to Tahoe, it took 6, but once we were out on skis, it was totally worth it.
The snow was pretty sticky (probably not helped by my skis' total and complete lack of wax), but we made pretty good time up to a really awesome view point, where, to my surprise, Sam proposed :-).
The trip back down the mountain was really nice, but Presto's feet started hurting, so Sam ended up carrying him piggyback (doggyback?), which was extremely adorable. Alas, I do not have pictures of this. The late start meant that we ended the ski in the dark with headlamps, but what's adventure without a bit of headlamp use? Awesome day!!!
