Here Comes The Snow

Well folks, looks like the only way in and out of Yosemite are the highways. No more scenic routes until spring. Snow has officially closed many of the High Sierra roadways. So if you plan to head up to Yosemite for the holidays, be sure to check road openings with the Highway Patrol.

Here Comes the Powder

It's official, Lake Tahoe has snow. Powdery perfect snow. Ideal to drop all plans of munching on turkey with the family and instead huff it up to the mountains to delight in the winter wonderland. Better act fast--before all the good powder melts under the hordes of folks boarding down the hills.

If you can, check into Deerfield Lodge for a night of luxury mixed with easy access to Heavenly lifts and the gondola.

I've also heard through the grapevine that Southwest Airlines has released some unbeatable deals to fly to Reno--something to the tune of two for one trips.

Finally, on your way up to the mountains be on the lookout for the fall colors dotting El Dorado County. I've heard it is quite a show right now, but going away fast.

Happy Winter Everybody!

Acme Chophouse is closing

AT&T Park's steakhouse is shutting its doors to make way for a new eatery. Stay tuned for updates on the new tenant. All I can say is: It better be good. I will miss Acme's macaroni and cheese.
