The Great Squaw Valley (Mis)Adventure of 2013

Yes. I made that flashy graphic. Well, not the skier image. That's why some random guy on a stock photo website is credited. But I put everything together, decided that 3D teal font was the way to go, and even made the cheesy purple fade to pink background. (And I wonder why my career in advertising stalled when I was 19...)

Anyway, the Great Squaw Fiasco MisAdventure of 2013 is on.

Back in the middle of summer, I decided that I needed a vacation. A winter vacation. And I idly (or maybe in a moment of frustration) said that I'd take the month of February off and go skiing. Usually when I idly say something, nothing happens. Except this time, I bought a ski pass to Squaw Valley, rented out a place or two in the valley for three weeks, and – most critically – bought a plane ticket. 

Yikes. What have I done??


I've got some other things to take care of while I'm out west, so I don't plan to be shredding the gnar by day and stumbling home from the Chammy by night on too regular a basis. Well, the latter part, at least. I do hope to get out on my skis nearly every day, but at the same time, I'm trying to maintain a, uh, life-life balance. Good times.

Stay tuned for at least a few posts on this upcoming (mis)adventure, and see you on the slopes!


  1. Sounds great to me, Stephanie! Looking forward to hearing more about your (mis)adventure.

    1. Thanks, Wendy! I'm waiting for the weather to turn...It hasn't snowed here since I was last here in mid-January!!

    2. End of the week, hoping a extra inches drop for you.
