Here are answers, as asked Monday in Tahoe City:

Richard Caravelli, retired, Tahoe City: "Downhill (for) the exhilaration."

Yvette Shipman, Realtor, Homewood: "Cross-country for regular exercise, fewer people and the same beauty as when you hike in the summer, but in a new and different way that is ever changing."
