Leaving for Lake Tahoe Tomorrow

I will be leaving tomorrow for a week of skiing and secretly tweeting about funny shit my dad does. My dad has made Tahoe seem like a pretty excellent place and has gotten me pretty excited about it. I haven't been out west to ski in like 6 years, and I'm actually a little nervous about it. I'm no longer in "easily run for fucking hours at a time because I'm 17 and run track and play basketball and also I'm 17 and never get tired doing anything" shape so a week of intense skiing will put my lazy ass to the test. Unlike 17 year old me, I am also aware that there is shit out there that can kill me.

Shit like the crazy area with the red arrows pointing to it

The above picture is Heavenly Valley, which we will be skiing on the first and last days. My dad claims it's the "bee's knees" (he didn't really say that but I hope he was thinking it). My dad is also 63 and I hope he doesn't kill himself in that crazy area of double blacks because of his bad back and oldness. Anyways, I hope you guys are super jealous. The only bad news is I won't be able to watch all of the Bulls games and will instead have to watch them when I get home on my DVR. Definite first world problem.
