Math steeplechasers tackle the elements

It was a dark and stormy morning. On Tuesday, May 20, teams from five El Dorado County high schools braved rain, legions of elementary school field trippers and shrieking picnickers to triumph over the limitations of mind and achieve victory as problem solvers par excellence.

Historic Granlibakken provides unique winter experience

Although its hill is extremely modest and barely garners a mention among Lake Tahoe’s many famed ski resorts, for several decades Granlibakken was known as the only winter playground in the entire Tahoe basin.
