California: Lake Tahoe

Travel is glamorous only in retrospect.
— Paul Theroux

First days of winter: Ski season is upon us! California is having one of the best snow in recent years! We spent the weekend in South Lake Tahoe, and it was beautiful! There was a snowstorm...but it's really not that bad when you're indoors. I picked up skiing last year, and I enjoy it a lot more than snowboarding - fewer falls and less painful! Cold/snow is not my favourite...being from the tropics and all. But I really enjoy the snow blanketed scenery - feels like a dream and totally festive. In fact, it was so cold that I felt like we had gone to Siberia. 

I also went just so I could wear my most favourite boots ever ;) - these Burberry shearling boots from seasons past (similar Burberry ones here). I wore this Reformation dress and Marc Jacobs fur vest.

My kind of winter boots - warm and cozy shearling lined with tracked sole!

Scroll on for some beautiful snow photos.

Snow covered trees.

Just the view from one of the slopes at Heavenly Ski, no big deal. Also, I risked frost bite to remove my gloves and take this photo, just saying. My favourite part of skiing is sitting by the edge of the slopes and taking in the view, haha.

The most relaxing day ever at the hot springs....

Rustic cabins everywhere.

There was a snow storm the weekend we were there... :/

Can't wait to come back...in the summer!
