Tahoe, where the mountains meet the water

As the  saying goes; time flies when your having fun, and so is true for this trip. With a fun quick Stop in Utah, our adventure continued onto Tahoe. Not only did Tahoe bring us some fun shred and good jumps, it also brought us closer to some past friends, and plenty of new ones.

The highlight of Tahoe for me was the double line of jumps set up for snowboarder magazine ms. SuperPark but than opened up for the public. Granted I had a blast hot lapping with all the crew in the main park. But when it comes to high lights jumping tends to be top of my list, and as the Squaw Valley jumps were on point. It would be almost impossible for me not to spend a majority of my time there.

Obviously this adventure isn't only about the snowboarding,  it's about experiencing what every where has to offer and seeing how much we can pack in a few days.

With Tahoe's diverse environment, seeing what it had to offer was easy. A stop to the lake to meet up with past Colorado friend Camille, we soon realized that the lake brings the board out in everyone. I honestly can't imagine how cold the water was but Camille and friends rose to the challenge and got their surf on. With surfing, skating in truckee, and super fun park lapping at alpine meadows and squaw valley. There was no lack of excitement during our stay in Tahoe, and to top it all off we had an amazing host; Kara Strehle made sure we always had a bed to sleep in and that our cups were never empty.
