I've been living in Lee Vining for 6 months now, but I might as well say hello now that winter's here.
I've been up and down the Eastern Sierra for most of my life, and after graduating this May I decided that I might as well live out here for a while. In the summer and fall I'm out hiking, fishing, and climbing as much as I can, and now that it's winter I'm hoping to ski as much as I can. Lee Vining is pretty quiet in the winter, but fortunately I also started homebrewing this year and have a productive hobby to keep me busy during cold winter nights.
I'm from San Diego originally and just graduated from Berkeley, so I'm looking forward to my first winter in a place that actually has one. I finally got into skiing last season and 6 hours of driving for a day of mediocre snow got old really fast. If only June was still open this season...
Hope to see some of you out there for some great post storm skiing!
