First run down the fingers

First Run Down "The Fingers" 2010 from Shreddy Times on Vimeo.

So I'm riding up the lift the other day, happened to be the first day KT22 was running, and I see my brother, Johnny, shredding straight towards the fingers. He disappeared as the chair kept moving to the top and, until I reached the bottom, I was wondering what the hell he was going to ski on the fingers!? The lines were boney and icy, no one had hit them yet. When I rolled up to the lift line, my friend yells to me, "Hey, your brother lost his pole in the fingers!" Sure enough, there it was sitting precariously on top of his line. The above movie put together by Shreddy Times tells the story best. Check it out for a good laugh. Stoked my brother was the first to hit up a line through the fingers!!

Las Vegas with Kicker

I recently went to Vegas for a Kicker shoot. I left my camera in my room for the most part, but here are a few shots. We spent most of our time at the Hard Rock and shot in the new club called Vanity. The place was wild. My favorite part was the women's bathroom. Tom Tom skated the pool and we all had an awesome time at the Kicker Big Air Bash. The cars were nice, but the tail whips these guys are doing on bikes are ridiculous these days!

It's a Blackwood kind of day

After seeing photos of Blackwood last night, my roommates, brother, and I couldn't resist heading up there today.

We loaded up the sleds this morning and headed out, to see for ourselves, if there really was any goods to be had.

It was a typical Tahoe day with blue sky and sun shining down.

I was especially excited to ski with my brother, Johnny.

The views were amazing and the birds were out in full force chirping away.

Dave, myself, and Nicki getting stoked to drop in our first real pow run of the year.

We skinned up this ridge to get to the goods once we dropped the sleds. The snow up top was wind buffed and soft. I didn't even hit a rock. Once we made it to the trees is was powder all the way down with fun logs and rocks to play on.

There's no where else I would rather be right here.

Hiking through the trees and scoping future lines got my mind thinking of the year to come. I can't wait for the ball to really get rolling!

My brother cruising through the winter wonderland.

Near the end of the day, the road started to melt away. It was a rad first day out on the sleds and skins. Good times in Tahoe! Let the season begin!

Trick or Treat

Just a few of the Halloween Trick or Treaters that stopped by my house. I bought a ton of candy, but we had to start rationing the kids near the end of the night. I felt bad when we ran out and had to turn kids away. One kid shouted "your getting egged tonight!" as he left. Good thing that didn't happen!!

Fall in Tahoe

We had our typical pre-season dusting, but since then it's back to fall days with cold nights.

Good weather for hiking and photo taking.

And photo stealing...Danny found this drop suspended in moss before I did, but I couldn't resist not taking a photo of it.

If the water wasn't so cold I would have been in there in a second!

And now we wait, we wait and we dance for snow! Get on it.

In the Depth of Food

I love food and I love to cook. My roommates like to comment on my food related blog posts saying that it has absolutely nothing to do with skiing. Well, it happens to be one of my favorite bare with me when I post photos of food. This one is for you Danny and Conor...coconut chicken stir-fry!


Happy Halloween!!!
