Editor's note: Herein lies a tale told in iPhone photos of Skiing editor Sam Bass's very first ski trip to California, which took place between March 15 and 20, 2013. Early in his writing career, he was told never to tell what-I-did-on-my-vacation stories. Apparently, he never listened.
After landing in Reno, I picked up a car lent to me by a former coworker. She left a note suggesting that, if hungry, I should hit the Full Belly Deli in Truckee on my way to Squaw Valley to meet some high school buddies. They happened to be serving this sandwich, which consisted of red cabbage, hot corned beef, potatoes, and Guinness mustard. I wanted to nap afterwards, but had to press on.
