The (Pretty) Big Snow

The 10 feet (3 meters) of snow that was forcast didn't quite materialize, but we did end up getting a fair amount of snow. On the upper slopes of Alpine Meadows, the totalt storm totals were probably up around six feet, which is definitely not anything to complain about. Since the snow arrived over a period of about 10 days, or at least it seemed like it snowed about every day for a good week and a half, we were able to get out and enjoy fresh snow every day. It was fun to see our boys react and interact, and while I'm not one to take a lot of ski pictures anymore (I'd rather be skiing then stopping to take pictures all the time), we did get a few days of great skiing in, and several more days of fun in the snow.
