Lake Tahoe Is looking prime for White Christmas adventures for Locals and Travelers. Our reporters on the front lines are calling in data as we speak: over a foot in the last 24 hours @ Squaw Valley. More coming down!!!”
So you’re sitting in your cozy office in East Whereversville USA and want to know if this is the weekend to hike, fly or drive out to Tahoe for some rip roaring skiing or snowboarding. But you’re worried that your trip will be ruined by LACK of nasty, cold, stormy weather with HEAVY snow followed by STUNNING bluebird views of the lake…
Well never fear, here are some links to make it easy for you to pick a day when the heavy snow falls, and you can wake up and rip sick powder face-shots in the sun!
Here in the Reno-Tahoe Region we pride ourselves on the fact that no matter the season or weather, our landscape ain’t no one trick pony!Case in point: These guys, who live a stone’s throw south in Carson City won’t let a little snow cut their mountain biking season short. Although the gentlemen in this picture seem to be gazing a bit lustfully over at Heavenly…Still, once the snow melts down on the valley floors it will be perfect for road and mountain biking, hiking and golf if you like to get more than one sport in for your holiday season vacation.All of the ski resorts are open now with a good and growing base, and the backcountry ski season is off and running!-MTB
Cloudy skies, freezing temps and FROZEN precipitation: It’s a beautiful day in Reno!A few weeks ago our friends JT Holmes, Shane McConkey, Miles Daisher and Jesse Hall did a little Snow Dance Ceremony in Downtown Reno to show those delicate flakes just how to go about floating down to the ground. It worked. IT’S SNOWING!!! Here’s a short video Dan Dominy made of that little ritual…
Downtown Reno was a killer place to celebrate Warren Miller’s movie, Playground, the beginning of winter and the Make a Wish Foundation, Northern Nevada Chapter with warm temps and sunny skies… WAIT!?!?!? Reno ain’t no sissy Caribbean cruise town! We want freezing temps and gobs of fresh powder! Well, precip is on the forecast, and SKIERS ARE FALLING OUT OF THE SKY!!!
The first EVER urban skiBASE jump: Shane McConkey, Miles Daisher, JT Holmes, and Jesse Hall hit the jump @ the top of the Silver Legacy casino in Reno and plummeted then glided down to land in the Eldorado parking lot to a crowd of 1000 whooping spectators.The video above was professionally shot and edited by world renowned adventure videographer Dan Dominy, with music from Reno’s coolest local band, Sol Jibe.Stay tuned!
