Northstar at Tahoe with Julie and Albert

This past weekend was our “rain check” trip to Northstar with Julie and Albert. We had rented a house earlier in the season, which we couldn’t get out of. Albert was traveling, so they almost didn’t make it, but we’re really glad they did. On Friday after we arrived, we had dinner in the village.

On Saturday, the Olivias had a half-day lesson together as did Ellie and Lucas. Theo skied with Julie and Albert and I skied with Grace. I peeled off for a bit before lunch to do my regular runs on Burnout. After lunch, we all skied a few more runs before heading back to the house.

The house was definitely the nicest we’ve ever rented up there. There were plenty of bedrooms. Somehow, the sleeping arrangements on the first night were the same as the ski lesson groups. I’m not sure how long Albert will allow Ellie and Lucas to bunk up. They are two peas in a pod at school, which is super cute.

On Saturday, we braved the hot tub (who knows what’s in there?). We ordered out food from the village and just ate at home. Everyone was pretty tired from the day and even the adults turned in early.

On Sunday, the Lees were going to head home. We were open to skiing but decided not to. It only got down to 43 overnight, so it was probably only going to be good in the very early hours. It also turned out to be a very windy day, so I’m glad we just hung out before heading home. We took the gondola up to the Ritz-Carlton to have brunch at Manzanita. There were very few people at the resort, which made it nice and quiet (until our crew came along).

We all headed home in the early afternoon and were home before dinner time. I’m glad it all worked out and we were able to take this trip together. The kids and adults all had a great time together. Until next time!
