Funny thing - the season that I decided to move to the Lake Tahoe area, it doesn't snow.
My friends back in the Mid-Atlantic (the area I moved from) - have been having a great winter.
They even started tagging their snowboarding posts with the hashtag "#thanksnate" (like thanks Nate for moving out west and sending all the snow our way) to rub it in.
My longtime buddy and videographer Justin called me up in mid-December and said that he knew a spot that was holding some soft pow! It hadn't snowed in four weeks! I didn't fully believe him, but I wasn't going to pass up on the possibility of a pow turn.
We met up, formed a game plan and trucked up to an undisclosed location above Lake Tahoe.
It was a holiday weekend and the roadside parking was mobbed.
Once we found a spot, I jumped out of the truck on to the snow and noticed that it was ROCK SOLID!
Ice block - I was losing faith in Justin's claim.
We booted up and readied the splitboards anyways.
Did we find pow?
