Jan 31st 2011

We appreciate the beauty of pristine corduroy as much as the next person, but when the fresh snow falls (as it did over the weekend), we’re all about finding the untracked powder off the beaten path. The Ski Lake Tahoe resorts boast an amazing variety of off-the-groomer terrain, ranging from tree skiing to wide open bowls to steep chutes. Need proof of the fun-factor? Check out a taste of what we’re talking about in our latest video below.
