Wood shop turned ski shop today. I’ve been using that fire hazard of an iron since I was a kid racing Nordic and waxing skis in a freezing horse stall at Tahoe Donner XC Ski Center. I think my Mom bought it for Paul and I at a thrift store in Tahoe. It’s always done the job just fine. #nordork #tahoedonnercrosscountry #tahoedonnerxc...

Having grown up in Truckee most expect me to be a ripping alpine skier but I didn’t lock my heals down until I was nearing 40 years old. I grew up a couple miles from an amazing nordic ski area though! Our parents worked and didn’t have the time or money to get us into alpine skiing and we lived quite a way out of town which meant shuttling to resorts was a challenge so this is the kind of skiing my brother and I did. It felt so good to get back out on these skinny sticks today for the first time this season! Thanks to #tahoedonnerxc for teaching me to love being a nordork. fischerski...

Well Cara and I thought we would turn around when we got there. We saw one person with skis hiking to the mountain. Then we saw another chick in the parking lot asking if we were going. We went and it was worth it. Gale Force winds and snow and all. #tahoedonnerxc #donnerxcountryskiing #skateskiing #skateski...

Backcountry cross country skiing above Tahoe Donner. About a 600’ climb to open bowls and magical crust skiing through the forest. We did not see a single person in the back country #tahoedonner #tahoedonnerxc #xcskiing #truckee #backcountryxcskiing...

XC Ski views.
PD: looking across the snow, at the top of a mountain, toward a ski hut on the left, past tall green trees and to mountains across a valley. The sky is blue with some child’s and the sun is shining high in the sky, tucked behind one of the trees.
