Why We Love Our Jobs

There’s something about the breath of fresh air.  Taking in all of the scenery and the cold yet arid feel of the summit of a snow capped mountain.  It is extremely refreshing and revitalizing.

Only so many places in the world can you go and “escape reality” and that’s what snowboarding does for us.  It gives one that sense of freedom.  It’s about you and your board and where you’re heading next.  The back country is your castle, and your sacred sanctuary.  When you hit a trail of fresh snow, fresh powder; it’s like  man has never set foot there and you are the first one to march into new territory, while at the same time having a great time doing it.

We love our jobs because it is ultimate freedom.  After the fame and the glory, really, at the end of the day we get to shred for a living and do what we want… up on the mountain, away from the smog, and the rush of quick paced mayhem.  It’s liberating.  The financial freedom to do as a professional snowboarder wishes is only part of it.  It is really the satisfaction of conquering the mountain, laying siege to waste as you trample through the snow carving out your name.

All we ask of you is one question: Do you love your job?  If the answer is a quick no, or you have to think about it, then we ask you to seriously consider your profession and get hopefully be able to explore your passion more to be able to fulfill your life purpose and enjoy your time here.  Just wanted to chime in as the season is drawing to an end here in the States.  We hope all you peeps are having a good life, enjoying the moments you can with family and friends.

Lot’s of snow and time to have fun

This season we still got lot’s of snow throughout California and Tahoe.  There’s been plenty of extra powder to throw around with your board which means a lot of extra fun to have.  We highly recommend grabbing your board and hitting up the following places while the snow is still on the ground! Don’t miss out because, you know what that will mean… do you really want to have to wait until the next season to be hitting the slopes and having fun?  We didn’t think so.

  • Lake Tahoe (Tahoe Mountain)
    Right now there is still plenty of fresh snow in Tahoe with back country trails open 8 of the 12 slopes open for business on the North side of the mountain.  With the snow storm blowing over right now, you can catch some fresh powder and even the cross-course for some double black diamond action.

 

  • Big Bear Mountain
    Big Bear is still open this late into February (wait, isn’t it March 1st) which is pretty cool considering it’s a smaller mountain.  The slopes are still a lot of fun with fresh snowfall coming throughout the entire weekend.  Basically you can catch the best of both traditional mountain courses as well as the sports course for a day of fun on the mountain.  Most notably, the best spot in Southern California.

 

  • Mammoth Mountain
    Ahh yes, did we just save the best for last?  Probably.  This huge inactive volcano is one of the best locations in California to grab your board and head out for a week’s worth of shred.  With over 35 slopes, and 20+ separate chairlifts, Mammoth delivers.  When you get some fresh snow, Mammoth is the place you’ll want to be to fully indulge in the sport of skiing and snowboarding.  You can even catch the secret hot springs for some extra fun to your adventure.  It’s more of a local secret though.

So now that you know the spots that are getting the most snow this season, pick up your board and get ready for a fun ride.  We will be constantly updating, giving you the scoop on what’s happening this season here at the Tahoe Snow Blog.

Check back in with us regularly to see what your favorite boarder and skier has been up to and where some of the best spots in the world to shred some snow are.  A lot of them are secret, and may require helicopter drop off, but that just makes it even more fun; that much more adventure.

Grab some snow! Get some fun in your life and hit the mountain because this season will be over before we know it, Spring is literally knocking at our door.

Welcome to Tahoe Snow Blog

tahoe_snow_powderHere at Tahoe Snow Blog, we take pride in shredding for a living.  Few are fortunate enough to be able to shred the slops and get paid while doing it; but on a side note, it’s still awesome to be able to hit the slopes for some recreational time with family and friends.

The mountain always has so much to offer.  Clean air, fresh pow and lush beautiful skyline and scenery that could make any man cry.  It really is the life and us here at Tahoe Snow Blog couldn’t imagine life any other way.  That’s why we stay as close to the mountain as possible even from local cities.  And Lake Tahoe couldn’t be a better place to be able to take in the beauty of nature while still persevering through life and smashing goals.

Stick around with us here at Tahoe Snow Blog because we’re just getting started and want to show you all that the snow life has to offer.  Welcome to the new blog and we look forward to seeing you down below in the comments, and also at the peak of the mountain under fluff clouds and blue skies, stay shredding.
