Instead of skiing on Sunday we went sledding at Granlibakken on Tahoe's west shore. This well-hidden resort and conference center has a snow play area and a teeny tiny ski hill. So teeny tiny that there is just a t bar and rope tow. The sledding hill is just high enough that you can walk up it and also steep enough that you can legitimately scream like a wild person going down it.

I'd like to tell you that just the kids sledded but no, I did, too. It was silly fun. I rather enjoy socially acceptable screaming. Paige and her entourage came with us and her dad, Jim, sledded in a suit and tie as he'd come straight from church.

Granlibakken is a neat place. Quaint yet modern facilities. It's family-owned on 74 acres. It'd be a great summer destination because it's an easy walk to Tahoe City and the beaches.

We try to do something new each time we go to Tahoe, be it try a new restaurant or visit a new locale. I cannot fathom that in April we will have owned our Squaw place ten years. How could that be?!
