A day on the ski slopes with good company always reminds us to see the bright side of winter.
We loved going to the Cottonwood, in Truckee, California for a hearty meal.
We were also nuts for their vintage ski display and warm, hanging lights.
S'mores are the ultimate comfort food, especially when made with close friends.
Nothing warms up the winter like a raging fire.
Winter in February can be such a drag, but ski trips this time of year always help us see the bright side the season. Instead of fighting the snow, why not celebrate it? Northstar, one of the resorts in Lake Tahoe, is neither too challenging for beginners nor too easy for more advanced skiiers, making it the perfect destination for friends and family of varying levels. While a day on the slopes is a perfect way to embrace winter, there's really nothing quite like a well-earned après ski evening. A glass of red wine and some jacuzzi time can do wonders for tired muscles, but our favorite post-ski treat is always cozying up to a warm fire. Many Lake Tahoe hotels offer outdoor fire pits, and ours even handed out s'more kits, which practically made us giddy. Sure, we're excited to go back next year, but now that February has turned to March, we're finally ready to take on the spring!
