Our 4th Spring Break in Tahoe!

Another amazing week up in Tahoe with the fam. This was our 4th consecutive year spending spring break in Truckee!  Skiing, skate skiing, ice skating, biking, swimming, sledding, building double decker tunnel slides, etc...
  • First year (2014) - This was Nikko's first trip to Tahoe.  He was still 3 months old, but I took him around in my ergo everywhere!  
  • Second year - very dry year... I went mtn biking and running more than I skied... still had a blast.
  • Third year - still really dry, but I did get to ski chimney at Squaw
This year (4th):
as with previous years, we went to AIM's Spring performance, where Nikko picked his nose and didn't really sing much... 
As soon as I dropped off Kimbo at Winter Wondergrass, I took the kids on the bike ride along the bike path at Squaw
Getting walled on the bike path.  
Next day got in a few quick runs at Sugar Bowl.  
Kai took out his other ride, his uni on the bike path...

After 3 days of partying at the Environ house, we moved to Pahatsi Totsi, where the

Serene lakes is still frozen over.  From one of my morning skate skiing outings...
We had the propane tank filled while we were up there.  I had to build steps in the snow so they could make it up the bank.

The boys took lots of naps in the van

We checked out the new Truckee Donner Rec Center on the rainy days... which was awesome!!
Water slides, splash pads, this was kid heaven.
We walked down the street to a friend who was renting a house there.
