Being at the beach one day, and go skiing in tee-shirt the day after, with a gorgeous view on a lake…only California provides this kind of experience!

If you follow my Instagram, you know that we just spent a few days in Big Bear, a ski resort located two hours away from Los Angeles!

As soon as you arrive at the top of the mountain, the first thing you see is this amazing lake.

Most of the snow on the slopes is artificial, made from the water of the lake (for the simple reason that the weather is so nice in California that it rarely snows enough).

First, we visited the Big Bear Village, and had a gargantuesque american breakfast (I recommend the Teddy Bear Restaurant!) to gain strengh.

And, after 15 years of abstinence, here I am again, riding skis… I was so scared, but my father was right, it is like riding a bike, you never forget!

This is the highlight of Snow Summit (where we skied); this incredible view over Big Bear Lake. Hard to imagine that we are in the snow shooting this landscape!

Looking back on these last two days: I still know how to ski, I am in one piece, and I discovered a beautiful place. 10/10.
