A 2-year old skis before you this season

Monday, November 14th, 2011

Yep, you’ve been one-upped by a 2-year-old. Remember Makenna Larkins, the 1-year-old skier from last winter? She’s back at it, starting her season tally early last month. Here’s some video her mom captured on her iPhone, so excuse the low resolution. So awesome how she asks for more at the end of the first video from October. Shred on, Makenna!!

WHO: Makenna Larkins

WHAT: Skiing

WHERE: Tahoe City, California

WHEN: October and November 2011

GEAR: Patagonia kids ski gear

Check out those fresh tracks! Skiing pow at 2! This is surely toddler skiing at its finest.

The Tahoe Mountain Sports Adventure of the Week blog series takes a walk (or hike, bike, surf, climb, toddler ski) in someone else’s shoes, from pro athletes to local Tahoe adventurers. Let us know if you’ve got an adventure to share.

First Turns of the Season

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

So this last storm did leave over a foot of snow on the higher elevations in the basin. It was just enough snow to make some turns if you were careful and knew where to look. Here are a few shots from my first day on snow this year 11/3/08. The snow was about a foot and a half of heavy early season snow that should make a nice solid base.

Cody can see where he's going in this flat light because he is wearing the Smith I/O

First turn of the season.

 In these pictures, Cody can see in the flat light because he could switch to his low light lens in seconds with the Smith I/O goggle, and is dry and comfortable after hiking in a snowstorm because he is wearing the Cloudveil RPK softshell with Icebreaker base layers. Overall, it was a nice day to kick off the season. Keep checking back for more updates when we get more snow.

The snow was surprisingly good.
