A flying leap is something a lot of skiers do on the slopes on a daily basis.....and since today is Leap Day, let's check out a house whose name shares that same sense of adventure. The Ski House of the Day is Flying Leap, located in Zephyr Cove, Nevada. It's close to the ski areas of South Lake Tahoe, including Heavenly, and has views of the ski slopes, but it backs up to a vast National Forest so it also has beautiful tree-covered privacy surrounding it.
The spacious 4-bedroom interior has room for lots of fellow skiers, and looks comfortable but the thing I really like is the new hot tub in the snow (nice color to match the snow!) out on the back deck overlooking the forest and mountain view:
Nearby Heavenly has something special starting today, too. Their First Tracks Passholder Appreciation allows pass-holders to get on the lifts early to get first choice of first tracks on Wednesday mornings for the next month.
In case you're curious, the name for this ski house, "Flying Leap," is based on Anna Quindlen's inspiring commencement speech to the Class of 2009 at Wesleyan University, in which she encourages graduates not to yield to the status quo, but rather to take the flying leap and redefine the future.
So whether it's a flying leap on skis, a leap of faith, taking the flying leap to redefine your future, or spending some time in the ski house Flying Leap...enjoy your own kind of leap on this Leap Day!
