Late March, early April, and long into May if you're lucky – that's absolutely the best time to ski. Days are long and mostly sunny. You get to ski in a sweater or light windbreaker. Unless it's a powder day, you might as well sleep in and hit the lift around 10am, because last night's freeze ...
The dedicated powder skier is a weather hawk. We pay attention as storms march across the meteorology maps. A front comes in from the Pacific, and we note with a connoisseur's eye whether it's a Pineapple Express (warm wet wind from Hawaii) or a bitter blast from the Gulf of Alaska.
Wagner Skis made for your DNA in a carbon neutral way
Pete Wagner makes custom made skis from a pre purposed gas station in Placerville using wind and solar power to ensure a carbon neutral factory. Not only are your skis one of kind made specifically for your own skiing DNA with a top sheet designed just for you, they are also good for the environment that means so much to those who care for the great outdoors. In our world that’s a double hitter.
The staff is great, and this is my favorite breakfast spot in the area. It's not fancy or a healthy breakfast alternative, Sunnyside Grill is a tasty old fashion breakfast spot with a bunch of character.
