My Facebook feed has been blowing up with all these “Mayan Apocalypse” theories as the Mayan Calendar comes to an end tomorrow. I’ve heard it all from the world imploding, to a total zombie outbreak where we all start eating each other’s faces off, and others view the end of the Mayan calendar as simply the end of one era and the start to a new chapter.
I’ll let you know that if the world ends tomorrow, I am 100% okay with it. I’ve already experienced dream-like pow turns through FEET of white & fluffy goodness. I’ve had the BEST job of my life as your snow reporter which has given me the opportunity to shoot some super sick photos (you can follow me on instragram @LeslieAllison33). I’ve already witnessed incredible winters at Sierra Resort including the 2010-11 season where we received over 760 inches of snow fall and I have made some unforgettable on-mountain memories with my family and friends.
If the world is going to end tomorrow, I’ll definitely be going out with a bang! I clock out from what could be my final shift at Sierra-at-Tahoe at 1:30 p.m. and it just so happens that the Last Tap Brew Off starts right at 2:00 p.m. I’ll be spending my final hours tantalizing my taste buds and casting my vote to choose which brew is best as we celebrate the Last Day with the Last Tap! Local micro-brews will go head to head and put their best brew forward to get my vote, so come cast yours alongside me and cheers to the great lives we’ve lived!
If I wake up with a hangover and the taste of beer on my lips Saturday morning, I’ll know the world hasn’t ended and it’s game on for the official start to winter! If that’s the case, Mother Nature is going to bring us some pretty sweet Christmas presents in the form of 3-5 FEET of snow! Jeeeeezzzzzz tons of snow coming our way! I couldn’t be more excited to see what the world and the Mayans have in store for us!
See you on the mountain To-MAYA!?!?!
