It’s a strange feeling loading Roundhouse at 5:00 PM as the sun hovers over high beaver and idiots ridge like the day running in reverse or stalling, just a few more hours, for a few more runs. But even at lake Tahoe, skies clear, snow melts and ski seasons end. Before it was all over we met up on the mountain for an epic bonfire, some hot coco and friends to shred the season out Alpine Style.

Once a year we load the lift after the mountain shuts down and head up for one last run of the day. It’s never the last run of the season, just a ceremony, a right of passage, an offering of fire, hot beverage and sparkling joy as we descend the fresh groomer while the sun dips behind the mountain. (or in this case, the blustery spring storm cloud!)
