I'm an avid outdoors person...although I don't downhill ski! Tried it...like cross/back country better. My husband and I have lived in the Lake Tahoe area for over 20 years. It truly is paradise! Hiking and biking are my favorite pass times in the Summer. I've lived here so long I know all the good spots. Skiing and snow shoeing in Winter...and cooking. I don't cook much in the Summer but those snowy days just seem to call for being creative!
