Happy Thanksgiving!

25 Nov, 2010

The past couple years I’ve spent Thanksgiving in the mountains away from family in the company of friends.  This year I’m happy to say that I’ll be joining family in North Tahoe for Thanksgiving Dinner and spending Black Friday on the slopes with family.  When I was considering moving to California, one of the highlights was being closer to my family who is mixed between Washington and California.  After so many years of being away during the holidays, I get to enjoy a Thanksgiving with my brother and sister-in-law’s family plus spend a day with them on the slopes.  I haven’t been on the slopes with my brother since we were kids.

Thanksgiving is a day to say thanks.  I am so thankful for friends and family who support me and all my readers who tune in to shayboarder.com.  I’m very lucky to live this mountain lifestyle, work for a company that I’m stoked on and have some amazing co-workers.  Its been a transition to move to California but I’m so happy to be here, trying something new and learning a lot in the process.  Of course the recent snowfall of 5-8 feet makes me feel extremely thankful for the powder gods delivering such goods.

So Happy Thanksgiving!  Capita and I want to say thanks and hope you enjoy some slope time during the holidays.
