In Too Deep

Today was STUPID DEEP at Squaw - 84 inches of Snow and counting!!  We've come from hucking dirt and rocks to bottomless powder in a mere 3 days. That's right, 3 days ago we were skiing rock hard, 6 week old snow that was just itching to break ... Read more >

Oh yeah, Winter is BACK!

Monday, 14 Feb 2011 | Views [338]

Ok, the storm is here and so is the Hype.   In Tahoe, we fear the storm hype because we’ve all seen these things downgraded to almost nothing in the past.   Personally, I don’t see that happening this time.   So, lets HYPE IT UP!   Why, not?   ... Read more >

Friday, 4 Feb 2011 | Views [434] | Video

How much do we really know about the food we buy? What really prompted me to watch Food, Inc.  is how WEIRD  the food is over here. I've had a loaf of bread sitting in my pantry for nearly a month now and there isn't a single sign of mould, ... Read more >

Winter Returns to Lake Tahoe

Sunday, 30 Jan 2011 | Views [257]

A Foot by Monday? A Month of Winter to Arrive on Valentine’s Day? The last time we had any measurable snowfall in Tahoe was New Year’s Day. Since that day, we’ve had a rain storm, a hard freeze, a lot of neglected feelings, and then…nothing. A ... Read more >

Friday, 28 Jan 2011 | Views [127]

Nothing takes my breath away quite like a sunrise above water. This morning on our way to work I just had to pull over to take in one of the many stunning Lake Tahoe's sunrises we get to witness. As I'd expect this photo does it no justice (but what ... Read more >

Thursday, 27 Jan 2011 | Views [361]

A little premature to be trading in my barely 2 year old snowboard, I know, but over the past few days she's become a total write-off. Putting it down to nothing other than a poorly made top sheet, I've gradually noticed some severe de-lamination suicide.... Read more >

There are no elevators in the house of success

Sunday, 23 Jan 2011 | Views [205]

They say that success is a ladder that cannot be climbed with your hands in your pocket. We have all read or heard about people who are briefly successful; They win a gold medal, make an instant fortune, or star in one great movie and then disappear…These ... Read more >

I'm not telling you it is going to be easy; I'm telling you it's going to be worth it. I've discovered in the latter part of my 22 years that it’s not things that make us happy but our experiences. Those who travel know the profound effect ... Read more >

A question that makes you think is worth asking

Monday, 3 Jan 2011 | Views [209]

At the cusp of a new day, week, month, or year, most of us take a little time to reflect on our lives by looking back over the past and ahead into the future. We tend to ponder the successes, failures and standout events that are slowly scripting our ... Read more >
