    ZOOM? or Google Hangouts or ?

    Hmmm. Yeah, I am an employee so I might be running the beta version before mass release. If it is any conciliation, it's coming!

    Skiing 19-20

    Wherever they take me! Sierra Mountain Guides are my go to. Generally we will meet anywhere from Lee Vining down to Rock Creek area. Just depends on snow conditions. They have some bigger trips as well, take you into the high country and ski some of the larger mountains, but hard for me to get...

    Great send! Honestly, 2k is a steal. If you think about the cost of a week at any West Coast Resort, lodging, food, etc. you get super close to 2k very easily. A little rustic, and not everyone's cup of tea, but man, what a great trip. Hell, I hire a guide once or twice a season for Mammoth...

    One word of caution, and I’m sure everyone knows, but as a father...do not rely on past experience or other resort ratings to determine your runs. The shape rating system is UNIQUE to each mountain. What is a blue at one resort might be a black elsewhere etc. The goal is always to ski another...

    Inbounds Avalanche Alpine Meadows Has been a pretty average year here in Tahoe for snowpack. After large storms in November/Early December, we have been blocked by high pressure ridges. Some piddly inch/2 inch storms over the past week opened up to a normal 12-24" event last night. Super cold...

    Pow Shots - The 2017-2018 Ski Thread

    Oldest is in the ski program so we’ve already been up 5 times this year (guilt free)! Hoping for some snow, probably not until the new year though.

    Skiing/Riding 2016-2017

    Well, Tahoe had been insane. Mt. Rose has the most snow in North America with 670" or so. What dreams are made of.

    Tahoe has its first dusting. Some of the resorts have gotten over a foot to date. High pressure ridge will keep everything out for the next couple of weeks, but looking for another shot in mid-November. La Nina pattern is threatening, so could be a good/better than average year out here.

    Skiing 2014-15

      I am biased, as I live at the base of Mt. Rose, but for me, that mountain is the best when the chutes are open. There is nothing as steep as El Cap in park anywhere in Tahoe. Also, the crowds are way more manageable, slope side parking (for free no less!), and a cheaper ticket. (When the roads...

    Tahoe was a total waste this year. Rain at 7500', no storms to speak of, hot days. I barely got my pass paid for. There were a couple of good powder days, so long as you could avoid the rocks hanging out under the cover.

    SOSH Running Dogs

      TINMA, but I have the same issue. My cause is sever over-pronation. Always has been the case. My right foot will go numb. There is a nerve that gets pinched and inflamed. So I stop, stretch, loosen laces, and this usually does the trick. I have had some success with orthodics, but since it is...

    AppleTV - Disney Channels not working

    Happens to us sometimes. Usually we either restart the apple tv or just wait a couple hours and they comeback online.

          No reason on Nips post to quote...But for MLB.TV, I have to imagine there is an Android App for that.
