Tahoe: It’s good to be back!

With Darragh arriving into town we could finally settle into a place for 2 months, but not before we spent one last night in Reno before our place was ready. Reno sure is one classy place…NOT. The contrast with Vegas is incredible, and i don’t really understand why Reno’s casinos and Strip have gone so downhill while Vegas has gone from strength to strength. On our way outta Dodge, we made sure to stop in at Cabela’s Outdoors warehouse, making sure to check our guns in at the front desk. Cabelas is amazing – Walmart in size and full of fishing rods, boats, clothes, tents, and of course rows and rows of guns and enough stuffed animals to fill Noah’s Ark. And to get you in the spirit of hunting, there’s one of those amusement centre infra-red shooting galleries – heaps of fun for 50 cents, and my 100% accuracy has carried over from last time.

There’s quite a bit of snow in Tahoe, and I’ve got El Rad’s Double Whammy Pass from last year to get me up to Northstar for free. It’s been fun, with a good couple of park lines but unusually cloudy most days, which has kept the pipe in great shape. Sunday was pow day, and I took a few snaps with my pocket Sony Cypbershot, but it’s hard to get good action self-portraits. Only a couple of the photos are still in colour…see if you can work out which.

Northstar isn’t the most epic location for pow turns, but risking a 2 week ban (made worse as the photo on the pass is not of me!), I nicked under the rope and out-of-bounds to find some awesome untouched fresh, steep turns, before finding some more fresh back in the resort – a few laps of the Backside chair made an awesome afternoon, and it felt great to be really riding again, not just sliding throught the park.

I liked this unexpected moment of afternoon light and stylish action so much I thought I'd see how it would look as a 50x70cm framed canvas. What do you think? @knut_eliassen #handplant @nitroaus_nz #goodtimes @fallsaustralia @fallsterrainparks #blackandwhite #snowboarding #photography #framed #canvas #print @canonaustralia @nitrousa @snapfishaunz
The countdown is on!💍 In 9 weeks @marygiorgi and I will be officially swinging through life together. Last weekend we did the final meeting at the #weddingvenue @immerseyv #cantwait
Stoked to see the @nitroaus_nz boys use a bunch of my photos at their #goodtimes #bar sales stand at the #SIA Tradeshow a couple of weeks ago, particularly the giant wall print of a #35mm #slide #film shot of @chiefofreddog in his #Murren #swiss #alpine #hutte from 2006. The rest are from @fallsaustralia this year mixed in with shots from @manusmarkus. @nitrousa #canberra #tradeshow @fallsterrainparks #snowboarding #sales #newgear #promotion #branding #partytime #photography #snow #mountains #alps #switzerland
