It’s after 10pm as I write this post and my mouth is watering. I could blame it on the pregnancy, but who am I kidding. I could eat pizza all day, every day.
Since I’m not doing much skiing this winter season, I’m finding new ways to get out and explore the mountains with the Child. Promises of hot chocolate is a pretty standard bribe. Call me a bad parent, but it works.
After a recent hiking adventure, we ate lunch at one of my favorite places at the Northstar Village – Rubicon Pizza Company. Have you been there? The Thai pizza is AH-MAZING. And the Child’s pizza that I helped devour was also insanely good. (Who’s a good parent?)
You can read my ode to Rubicon in my post on Snow.com.
Have you eaten here yet?
Like most of the country, we are experiencing an unseasonably dry winter.
And like most of the country, we are all complaining about it. I’ve never been one to wish for snow, but it is absolutely strange to find ourselves in the middle of January without a lick of natural white stuff around!
The weather is so beautiful, though, and perfect for afternoon runs and hikes.
The Child and I recently spent an afternoon with Granan (Manfriend’s mom) exploring Northstar California’s trail system. She happens to be the president of the Northstar Community Services District, so she’s a wealth of knowledge on the trail system and has great tips on how to find lesser-known trailheads!
There are 14.6 miles of trails surrounding the Northstar community!
Did you know that? I had no idea!
Check out the map and how to reach the trailheads in my latest blog for Snow.com.
In my latest post for Snow.com, I write about an awesome contest that Heavenly Mountain is launching today, November 7, just in time for the start of the winter season.
Now that we’re measuring our snow in feet in Tahoe, and our overnight lows in Reno have been consistenly in the 20′s, many of us are dreaming of another epic winter.
Heavenly Mountain has been busy making snow and grooming for the November 18 season opener. Yes – only 11 days until first chair!
