A beautiful day on Silver Peak…

“If you go anywhere, even paradise, you will miss your home.”

-Malala Yousafzai 

It felt like winter in the morning and then back to spring as the sun shined down but Sara BC and I found some more Tahoe powder to ski. Silver Peak is an aesthetic local peak, just outside Squaw Valley, with gorgeous north and east running bowls off the summit. The summit looks down onto Squaw Valley which is a closer approach, but we avoided it due to parking and it being a busy Saturday, and opted for the longer skin from CA89.
