Buckle up big air contest, Sierra at Tahoe, March 21st

buckle-up-baBuckle Up Big Air – To honor the memory of Greg Smith, one of Sierra Resort’s freestyle team members and a beloved friend to many local skiers and riders, Sierra Resort hosted a memorial slopestyle event, Buckle Up Big Air, raising $2,800. Part of the funds raised went to the Greg Smith scholarship fund for the Sierra Foundation, a non-profit organization that assists families whose children want to be a part of Sierra Resort’s competitive teams. The remaining funds will go to create a memorial terrain feature in Sierra Resort’s terrain parks, where Greg spent many happy days with his friends. The event is really grown to be a good time for the whole family, Last year My two of my daughters join me in filming the event for Kmtn TV. The Skiers and snowboarders really didn’t hold back, they came to compete. we ended up with some great footage, looking forward to this years event……Bob From SOT

New lifts at Kirkwood and Boreal Ridge 2008-09 season

Meet Alex, He stopped by at the Shoreline gate, and talks to us about the new lifts at Kirkwood and Boreal Ridge. Alex works for Mountain Pride Construction out of Tahoe City, they build lifts all over the planet. Alex sheds some insights on the new surface lifts at Kirkwood, they will make it easier to acess areas of the mountain that in the past only those committed to hike for the powder, would ski / ride. To the local Kirkwood skier / rider this is a bit upsetting, The Kirkwood local knows on a good powder day they can keep one step ahead of the masses. By plotting out their day, mixing chairs runs with hiking they will eat up all the powder like packman. The new lifts don’t really offer anything new to the hard core kirkwood skier / rider, so will this be good or bad for Kirkwood? A few years ago, Heavenly open up the fire brake area under the their new Gondola, to see so many ya-hoos trying to descend an area that was clearly mark as expert only was a bit shocking. Normally the extra hike would kind of weed out the ya-hoos, to increase accessible to expert terrain could end up ruining the powder for those who know how to rip it up. (Did that sound elitist?) So what is the local Kirkwood skier / rider to do? Increase your runs by learning new powder patterns, a good kirkwood local, can easily find Powder stashes 4 or 5 days after a dump. you’ll just have ski / ride those a few days sooner then normal, and be content that on the first day you got more vertical feet in because you hiked less….congratulations Kirkwwod on your new lifts….because the truth of the matter is most of us like to ride more then hike.
