Tahoe - Northstar

Gallo Sale Company Management Outing
March 4 - 6, 2011
Marcie and I joined a large group from GSC this year at the annual Northstar Ski Weekend. Neither of us skied, but we had a great time visiting with a lot of the managers I don't see on a regular basis, eating great food and just enjoying a weekend away.

We did have the option to snowmobile, which we took advantage of, and ended up having a far better time then I was expecting. The people running the show split us up into two groups, the more "sporting" group, which M and I signed on with, and the ones who wanted to take it a little slower.

After about 1/2 hour of getting to know the sleds, the guy leading our group pretty much opened it up and let us ride. There were times I wouldn't have wanted to go any faster. We had a great time, as did everyone else from what they were saying.
