Kyle Smaine

Claim to Fame: FIS Halfpipe World Cup Champion, Sierra-at-Tahoe Pro Athlete

Favorite Place to Fuel Up: The Red Hut Café, South Lake Tahoe

Ideal Day on the Slopes: “Nothing beats a powder day with friends, but there is no better feeling that the weightlessness of catching air. I spend sunny days lapping the halfpipe and park or sniffing out side hits on trails.”

Best Place to Après: Divided Sky, Meyers

Must-Do Tahoe Experience: “Explore the steep and deep powder stashes found in Huckleberry Canyon at Sierra-at-Tahoe. Stays fresh days after a storm, the extra work getting back to the lift is well worth it. Powder to the people!”
