SQUAW VALLEY SKI RESORT !
I learned how to ski back in 1982/1983 when I was an exchange student in Colorado! After that, I'd only ski again in Switzerland in 2005 and I chose the best way and place to do it that time: Gornergrat / Zermatt ! After that, I decided to go on and try to ski in many places around the World! It'd be difficult to go to as many places as I wanted to, but I've been trying... Chile (Pucón), Argentina (Bariloche and Ushuaia), Canada (Banff, Lake Louise and Whistler) and USA (Lake Tahoe) were some of the places where I did that!
LAKE TAHOE, its ski resorts and their beauty, is certainly one of my favorite spots on the Planet Earth!
Here's some of the beauty one could appreciate while skiing in SQUAW VALLEY!

pretty panorama and good use of the wide angle. The refugee at the bottom looks very inviting for some apres ski entertainment ;-) and the pist seems to be leading just right there. Beautiful horizon with the lake in the far distance adding very much to the landscape. Good colors, sharpness and contrast.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice day

Une journée parfaite pour le ski. Un ciel bleu superbe une lumière pure d'hiver et des conditions de neige idéales. Que demander de plus?

I remember Squaw Valley from the Olympic games when I was a child, but we didn't have a TV in those days, so I never saw what it looked like. It's certainly a beautiful area and you have captured it well with excellent light and colours.

Superb view over Squaw Valley and Lake Tahoe in the background. It looks like a truly attractive ski resort to me. As a passionate skier myself, I can just feel the excitement and adrenalin rush of being on these slopes.
And hey, with Zermatt you certainly have chosen one of our best resorts in the Alps indeed. It is a great place.
have a great weekend

Spectacular and wonderful scenery, magnificent POV with the green of these firs in the foreground, these magnificent snowy slopes and dotted with trees, large DOF with the distant mountains, a beautiful sky that is a great complement to this beautiful image.
Good sharpness and light, with a nice range of color.
Have a nice day.

bacana estas árvores no meio da paisagem Nevada e o lago ao fundo. imagino que aquelas instalações sejam a sede do resort e que é de lá que algum teleférico leva os esquiadores para o alto. imagino também que essas árvores no meio do caminho são um perigo de acidentes..

La distance entre les deux chaines de montagnes donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs des montagnes. La qualité de la lumière embellit les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.
