The ski season is ON! It just dumped 4 feet of fresh near Sugar Bowl and Halloween is next week!
We are stoked! This is the Sizzle reel for ESPN and the Discovery Channel to hopefully fight over and help us to get the message out.
Like and share this, please. We would love to get the attention of the big networks and take this huge!
Squaw Valley is awesome. Even in this late season, with the KT chair the only lift running, you can access some of the best terrain in the sierra. Local shredder, Mehdi Rangchi reminds us of the stuff that you should not miss when you are there. Follow the sun. Let the ice soften into some nice corn for at least an hour and avoid the shade. Mehdi is so stoked on his Atomic Access skis, he talked like a Kung-Fu master.

It is important to look behind you every so often to remind yourself how far you’ve come and avoid looking at all the ground you haven’t covered yet. This year has been amazing. The best and the most snow in memory. For Travis Ganong, it has been huge too. Picture yourself competing at the highest level for your discipline. (You should picture it or you will never actually do it, by the way) Travis has been in the U.S. ski team, on the World Cup circuit and lets you in on skiing the Hahnenkamm race in KitzbÃ¼hel, Austria. He lets you in on some Squaw Valley Secrets, too.- Sort of.
Highway 50 drops into South Lake Tahoe and opens up to some of the best scenery in the USA. Down, off to the right, on your way in the basin is Highway 88, going off to Kirkwood and some good tree skiing.
Waterhouse Peak is accessible on Highway 88. Park on the shoulder and put your skins on. I just did this with Todd Gillihan, local (loco) split-boarder and we realized some things. You don’t have to go here to have huge breakthroughs. Just hike up a hill with a good friend and share your thoughts.
Here they are:
There are few things in this world as important as friendships. Take care of them. They are all you’ve got.
We are going to change the world through adventures and bringing people together by giving and sharing our passions.
Stand by your spouse, no matter what.
Stay together. Get lost with friends but never alone.
A gut-busting cardio-high-altitude-blast gives you a better high than anything you can buy on the street.
