Snow in June. photo: slowcoustic.com
Yep, you read the words “Winter” & “June” in the title of this post. It’s ludicrous to think that we’ll be seeing pictures of people skiing powder in Tahoe one more time this year. I’m definitely pretty excited to see what our boys come up with on Wednesday after the storm blows thru and leaves us 5+ inches of powder above 7000’ in late June.
