    Given the current skiing status around the greater Lake Tahoe area, a quick decision was made to skip town and head to Telluride to find some snow over the Martin Luther King holiday. I have been frequenting Telluride almost yearly since 1998 and whether Winter or Summer, it is definitely a place that the whole family can enjoy...even for a stubborn father looking for some steeper turns. With amazing bluebird weather in the low 40s and total snowfall around 130 inches, it was the ideal weekend to ski with the kids and for dad to explore on the Ski School days. As far as terrain, everything was basically open except for the lines beyond Mountain Quail up to Palmyra and a few on the middle Gold Hill Chutes. The early morning groomers were fast and chalky with equally impressive views. At the end of the day, we really enjoyed lapping Revelation Bowl due to the ridiculous views of Bear Creek and the Wasatch Trail to the steep groomer of Silvercloud and the smooth windblown and fun cliffs near the Boundary. Other than that, some great meals, and the Telluride Fire Festival were icing on the cake to a perfect weekend on the slopes.

        With 3mm of new snow under bluebird skies, it was one of those days skiers from California could only dream of... So the MLK weekend monster storm is gone. Do you go skiing or do you stay home and purchase yet another DLC on Forza. How are the conditions up in Tahoe? More specifically, what is like at this guy's usual stomping grounds...Kirkwood? Well, little has changed in the past week and I would bet it will not be much different over the holiday weekend than in this video. It did manage to snow a few millimeters of snow overnight and actually did help out the skiing just a bit. Otherwise, all the usual protected spots were still holding wintery snow. The groomers are holding up quite nicely and other areas like Chamoix, Oops and Poops, Thunder Saddle, Rabbits Runs, and the fun zone of Olympic all held some decent turns. Add in losing and retrieving an iPhone twice, and you sir, can manage a damn fine day on the mountain. Is skiing in a hoodie in January really that bad? Pray for snow...in February!

          For the fourth year in a row, the snowpack in Tahoe is lackluster for this time of year. Thankfully, Kirkwood received just enough snow to open 100% of their mountain from the storms to date. Unfortunately, we received some mixed precipitation and heavy Eastern winds during the last two weeks. The conclusion? Well, the entire Sierra now encompasses everything from blue ice, rain crusts, rain-runneled faces, wind scraped ridgelines BUT ALSO some miraculous wind-buff, protected powder, and perfect corn. On January 4th, I scattered around and traversed every aspect of Kirkwood to see what I could find. Not stoked by the heavy cloud cover and flat-light, I was however, impressed to find great winter snow in Oops and Chamoix off Chair 6. There was even more consistent wintery snow in and around Thunder Saddle. However, everywhere else in between was a bit hit or miss depending on aspect and if completely sheltered. Eventually, I ventured out in the backcountry off to do some recon in the West Shore area to see firsthand whether the various lines out there were in play. As I traversed into Boulevard Chute, I noticed a nasty rain crust on the skiers right side from the summit so I decided to retreat. On the traverse out, however, I noticed the skiers left hand side had corned up nicely and felt very supportable. Figuring that if I skied safely and used the whole slope in a slow and cautious manner, I’d be down out of harms way in only a few turns. As it turned out, the upper slope skied better with releasable snow while the crux of the chute turned into near bulletproof. My guess is that the whole chute slid earlier in the year because the rocks that are usually showing in the crux were completely buried. Bottom line – I had a blast skiing those classic January conditions in Tahoe!

            For the last several summers a group of tight knit high school friends make the annual trip into the Desolation Wilderness to ride a secret snow melt pond called The Fountain of Youth. This year I decided to trek out the film equipment and piece together a small film beginning to end of our yearly adventure. Hope everyone enjoys!

                I have a special place in my heart for a chairlift better known as Chair 6 aka 'Cornice' at Kirkwood Mountain Resort. Why you may ask? Well, for starters, the lift starts at the base and tops out on a ridge line full of cornices (hence the name.) The options include everything from steep groomers, straightlines in the fingers, 100 footers like Big Jims, wide open bowls, classic California moguls, to impeccable storm tree skiing.

                  Yeah, yeah, yeah..."should have been here yesterday bro!" The last 'biggest storm of the decade' seemed to miss most of Tahoe by sliding South, but it did manage to clip Kirkwood and lay down a few feet of the goods. With Cornice Chair opening up mid-day Friday, I had to go up there on Sunday and test it out for myself. With a 6 year old in tow, the runs on Chair 6 were few yet fantastic in this skier's mind. Ultimately, I didn't get a ton of fresh lines on this day but did manage to lap Chair 5 and 11 with my son...which is easily just as awesome. ...UNTIL NEXT TIME

                    The time is finally here…off-trail skiing and celebrating the opening day for Sugar Bowl’s 75th season. Opening day access was through the village via the awesome old school gondola. However, the meat of the skiing was on Mt. Lincoln. With light rain and a thick cloud layer it definitely was not the most ideal day in the weather department but fun prevailed. The terrain included anything from the Rahlve’s Run to Lake View for about halfway down the chair, and at that point, the groomer was the call as the off-trail snow was a wee bit sticky. The top half of Mt. Lincoln was smooth and fast yielding fun slashing turns between the trees. Coverage was actually pretty good up there and my skis left the mountain in the same condition as arrival. Stoked. The next storm is quickly approaching…and with a couple feel of snow down low, we should be game-on in the Tahoe region. Fingers Crossed.
