Snowmobiles are Cool

At the end of this fine winter season I was able to buy a sled, and I'm sooo excited!


I bought my sled up in Logan Canyon, UT, and because Beaver Mountain Resort was closed for the season, we were able to ride the resort. Loads of fun!

Why I love Squaw Valley in the Spring Time...

Even though we all love to get in as much powder as we can until the month of May, it never hurts to have those hot Cali spring days where the sun comes out, the snow turns to corn and the sunbathing at the High Camp pool after a morning of skiing is game on. Can't beat it!

What a view!

Tribute to McConkey

We salute you Shane aka Saucer Boy with swigs of whiskey

The past ten days have been pretty rough for the community of Squaw Valley since our hero and friend, Shane McConkey, died. Many emotions flooded my friends and I. Ultimately, we constantly found ourselves reflecting on what a truly amazing, funny and genuine person Shane was, the enormous influence he has had on us and the inspiration that he will continue to have on the rest of our lives. This past Sunday, April 5th, there was a beautiful memorial service and celebration for Shane. Before the ceremony went down, we all went skiing and had a blast on the typical warm, sunny Squaw day. With Shane in our thoughts, Cody and Greg felt that the best way to pay their respects to the Legend was to do naked spread eagles off the Palisades. Shane would be proud of these boys...
