Carson Valley legend “Snowshoe” Thompson Looking up at Jobs Peak, in all of its snow-capped glory, from the floor of Carson Valley, I’m thinking that I cannot be the only one who is happy to see snow.  The Sierra resorts now have a steady business with skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, and sledding.  Here in Carson Valley, we can also enjoy snowshoeing and cross country skiing when we have enough snow. Actually, Carson Valley is legendary for “snowshoeing”.  Yes, legendary, thanks to ...
