Event Recap: 2013 Nakayoshi Annual Tahoe Trip



Nakayoshi hosted our annual Tahoe Trip this year from Friday, February 8th to Sunday February 10th in South Lake Tahoe. The weather was PERFECT than ever and we all had a fun and safe trip! Click here for more pictures from the trip.

We had a total of 18 attendees and stayed at a cozy cabin half a mile away from Heavenly Mountain Resort in South Lake Tahoe. Most of  the attendees went skiing and snow boarding on the mountain while enjoying the beautiful view of Lake Tahoe. Some of us stayed at the cabin, drove to the lake, and made a snowman and dinoSNOWrex! We also prepared and made delicious curry rice, and heated up some Mickey Mouse shaped chicken nuggets to go with it.

We hope everyone had fun! Big thanks to all the attendees for making this trip possible, and see you all next year in the snow again!
