A great excursion
Blades of glory: How about riding a tram to an outdoor ice rink set at 8,200 feet? The Olympic Ice Pavilion at Squaw Valley’s High Camp brings magic to the mountains of the High Sierra. The cable car transports people 2,000 feet in minutes. At the summit, rent skates and shuffle out to the rink. Lake Tahoe shines far below as the sun-bathed tops of Emigrant Peak, Granite Chief and KT-22 beam. [Visit WeekendSherpa.com to sign up for emails about getting outdoors in Northern California]
