Memorial Day Snow = Mountain Biking Bliss

It’s been a depressingly low snow year at Lake Tahoe this season, but I should not have been surprised to see snow here this weekend.  After all, it’s Memorial Day, which typically brings this type of weather.

Banked turns & snow

Snow and rain means the equivalent of a powder day for mountain bikers.  Despite still freezing weather on Saturday, we bundled up and went exploring.  Lower trails were the order of the day, and we weren’t disappointed.  Just a tad cold.  But it was worth it, even if it did take my feet more than an hour to thaw out.

Smiling even though I can’t feel my feet

Trail conditions should be fantastic now that the clouds have cleared, which is where I’m headed this morning.
