Ski Dads

I know I posted yesterday about it almost being spring, but I’ve changed my mind. It’s ALMOST winter (in Tahoe at least). My friend Lars posted this great Go Pro video yesterday from a ski day at Squaw Valley with his daughter. Lars is a snowboarder, but at least he knows what’s good for his […]

Pat with a Cat named Hat

No HAT! DON’T SIT ON THAT! This bit from Warren Miller Entertainment is either a holdover from the 1980’s or is something brand new they shot with a dude who lives in the past (at least sartorially).
