Editors Note: The Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort mountain representative and ever-so-lovable, Ralston the Bear, broke into the office and wrote this guest post for the Ski Lake Tahoe blog.
Despite popular belief, bears don't hibernate all winter. In fact I love winter, especially at Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort.
Now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, I'll give you a little update about my summer. It's been going quite swell; I've met up with my friend Yogi for some picnics at the top of Huckleberry Canyon, had some meetings with Smokey about mountain safety, ate tacos at the Baja Cantina and have been roaming around the mountain looking for my friend Gummy.
I've also been busy making sure the mountain is getting ready for the 2012-13 season. Although Yoda and I didn't see eye-to-eye when he first arrived, we had a great conversation where he informed me "Fear, not you shall. I come to teach three to six-year-olds Jedi snowboarding techniques, I do." Even though I think Yoda talks weird, him and his friends are great and definitely make snowboarding for kids unforgettable. Your kiddos won’t want to miss out on the Burton Star WarsTM Experience…that’s for sure.
Lately I've also been looking a lot at the pinecones around Sierra; they are getting very big which means a huge winter is on its way. Trust me, it's an old bear proverb. Which means the Huckleberry Cat Tours should be terrific.
Anyway, I'm going to get back to searching for food and making sure the marmots don't nest in the terrain park features. See you this winter.
