    By The Weekly on February 10, 2016
      It’s always a good day in Tahoe While others were out hiking and mountain biking Tahoe’s trail, enjoying the waters on Big Blue and lavishing in the long, beautiful summer days, the Tahoe Powder staff was hard at work dreaming about the 2015-16 winter season and working on the next issue of Powder. OK, we did do all of […]
  • Mountain heroes · Tahoe Nordic Search & Rescue

    By Tim Hauserman on February 10, 2016
    Since 1976, the Tahoe Nordic Search & Rescue team has been heading out in blinding blizzards in the middle of the night. They seek to find and return to their loved ones those lost in the mountains around North Lake Tahoe. While the goal is simple, the task is not. It takes a group of crack back-country skiers and snowmobilers […]

  • Girl powder · Taking women skiers to the next level

    By Priya Hutner on February 10, 2016
      I had heard extraordinary things about the Women of Winter Clinics at Squaw Valley. Always looking to improve my skiing, I thought it would be fun to experience a program of this nature. The clinics are for women looking to hone and sharpen their ski techniques and explore aspects of the mountain they may not have explored before. The […]

  • Danger of winter floods

    By Mark McLaughlin on February 10, 2016
    After four consecutive winters with less than average precipitation — especially 2014-15, the least snowy of record — it’s nice to see the Tahoe Sierra back in the saddle again weatherwise. It has not been an exceptional winter so far, but with Tahoe Basin precipitation closing in on 120 percent the region is off to a great start. The frequent, […]
  • Comfort Zone

    By Warren Miller on February 10, 2016
      Everyone has a comfort zone of some size. Wherever yours is, it gets more comfortable with each visit. My first comfort zone on skis was established on the Big Hill at Badger Pass in Yosemite after I had made turns on it the 207th time I skied down it. The Big Hill is in reality not very big, but […]
  • Making corduroy at Mt. Rose

    By The Weekly on January 27, 2016
    Powder days get all the hype, but there’s really something to be said for carving a fast run down smooth corduroy first thing in the morning. The feeling of effortlessly arcing your skis or board edge to edge over freshly groomed snow is better than that first sip of hot coffee (just kidding. I wouldn’t make it to the resort […]

    By Tim Hauserman on January 27, 2016
    What form of winter exercise is inexpensive, requires just two pieces of equipment, gets you away from the crowds and can be done by just about anyone between the ages of 6 and 90? Snowshoeing. The good news is that those huge, wooden contraptions that were once used to clumsily travel over deep snow are now ancient artifacts adorning the […]
