I put my external hard drive in the refrigerator.

Snowboarding in deep powder in December This photo pretty much sums it up. So far, it's been an awesome season in Tahoe and it's only January. When you work at a ski resort, more snow means working harder and still (somehow) finding time to play even harder. For me, it means setting my alarm at 5:15am to get to work two hours early, allowing for a three hour "lunch" break and still clocking out at 5:00 in time for the oh-so-important Après-ski. It makes for a long day, and sometimes I forget how to function. For example, sometimes I put my external hard drive in the refrigerator and take a can opener out of the drawer to open a bottle of wine. Super fun.

Off the mountain, I've been working on a few really fun projects for College Skis and Shaggy's Copper Country Skis for the 2013-2014 season. I'll post a few photos later this spring when everything gets launched.

That's it for now, back to shredding, designing and living the dream of an employed ski bum. If you want to see more snow porn or keep closer tabs on how much more snow we're getting than you, follow me on instagram or Twitter.
