Tis the season …

Believe it or not, winter is just days away. We know, it’s been hard to tell, with all the warm sunny days and sparse storms. But a snowpack is on the horizon, and the mountain resorts in our vicinity are gearing up for skiers and snowboarders.

To get you ready for the season, we present our annual Winter Guide. Along with addressing the shortfall of snow, we have stories about backcountry skiing, chop-it-yourself Christmas trees, cool gear and a cool guy you might meet on the slopes at Tahoe.

Happy reading!
