Lost Trail Lodge Feb 2010

(Click on image to trigger slide show..)

Diane, David, Steve, Diane, Theo, and Tricia embark on a mid-week adventure to the ski-in Lost Trail Lodge. 4 miles in from the car, and 350 feet of elevation gain along a sled packed trail following Cold Stream Canyon to just short of the Sierra Crest - the tour is well suited to an easy 1/2 day set of expectations. Once at the lodge we are welcomed by a warm, cozy retreat in the woods. A crackling fire heats the main rooms and the lodge is more like a museum of rustic country living than a prim and proper bed and breakfast. Acoustic musical instruments abound available for guest's use. We use this welcoming facility as our base of operations for a few days of ski touring. Although it kept snowing pretty much the whole time we were on this outing, the weather did not prevent us from having great ski touring and a good time. The ample kitchen is well appointed and we cooked some great meals every evening.
