Tahoe Mountain Sports Dreaming: What Keeps Our Clocks Ticking

This second installment of “Tahoe Mountain Sports Dreaming” is brought to you straight from the Tahoe Mountain Sports headquarters. We thought everyone should know that not only do we participate in outdoor activities, but for us, they are what dreams are made of. It wouldn’t be ethical to hire staff members that weren’t as passionate as ours are. See for yourselves…we live big, but we dream even bigger. Click here to read the first installment and learn about our other employees.

TMS: What do you look forward to most when you dream of an upcoming winter?

I picture a face full of cold, fluffy snow after every turn down the mountain on a blue-bird day.

TMS: Describe your dream day outdoors. No matter how realistic, let’s hear about it. What goes on in your mind while you sleep?

It’s late spring in Tahoe. I ride corn in the morning until it turns to slush and I’m down to just a t-shirt. Since there is more daylight this time of year I can snowboard and climb on the same day, so after shredding I head to one of the sunnier crags (Trippy Rock or Mayhem Cove). I send laps here until the sunset casts a beautiful pink, orange and purple color scheme over the lake and surrounding peaks. Then I head to the beach for a [very quick] dip in the ice cold lake. But to my surprise I’m not the only one dipping…a tour bus full of travelling ski bunnies spots my chiseled physique from the road. They bring the bus to a screeching halt and unload, flocking toward me in only bikinis and bright smiles. I end my dream day on a good note, then return to reality as I clumsily reach out and fumble for the ‘snooze’ button.

TMS: What do you look forward to most when you dream of an upcoming winter?

I look forward to long days out on the mountain, riding everyday that I can, trying to stay warm by campfires, goggle tans, and getting new gear!!

My dream outdoor day would start with blueberry waffles, a banana, and a hot cup of coffee followed by first tracks in fresh pow! After riding through the sunrise I would take my doggie on a nice hike with a rewarding vista at the end. I would eat lunch at my destination (preferably a turkey sando with spinach) and relax in the sunshine before heading back home to grab my kayak and stand-up paddleboard (SUP). I would then paddle my kayak, with SUP in-tow, to a secluded beach somewhere on Lake Tahoe where I would set up camp for the night. A hammock would be hung and a campfire built (s’mores mandatory) while listening to waves crashing on the beach and gazing out into the universe before I finally curl up and call it a wonderful day!
