  • My day at Mt. Rose Ski/Tahoe.

    Spent yesterday at Mt. Rose/Ski Tahoe. I took three snow sliding devices with me. First up is the Spruce Sherpas. I love the Sherpas for powder, but they're not my favorite boards for when the runs get skied off and slick. This is the last run I took on the Sherpas before switching to skis (yes, I said skis). Two more videos to come.


    Skiboards:
    2013 Spruce Sherpas w/Tyrolia Peak 11s
    2015 RVL8 Blunt XLs w/Tyrolia Attack 13s
    2018 Spruce Crossbows w/Tyrolia Peak 11s
    2017 RVL8 Sticky Icky Ickys w/Tyrolia SX 10s


    Boots:
    Salomon X-Pro 80

    Past boards: Salomon Snowblades, Line MNPs 89 & 98 cm, Five-Os, Bullets, Jedis, Spruce 120s, LE 125s, Ospreys
    Summit 110s, Nomads, Jades, RVL8 ALPs, BWPs, KTPs, Tanshos, Rockets, DLPs, Blunts, Condors, RCs, Revolts, Spliffs

    So this goes with my previous video where I spent yesterday at Mt. Rose/Ski Tahoe. When I last left you, I had done my final run on the Spruce Sherpas and was heading to my Jeep to get my skis. This video is the last run I took on those skis (Blizzard Regulators 165 cm). By this point I was tired and bored with skiing. Skis are great for stability, speed, and the extra glide they provide; but unfortunately skis do not have the same fun factor for me that skiboards have. After this run, I returned to my Jeep to switch out to Spruce Crossbows.

      Third and final video from yesterday at Mt. Rose/Ski Tahoe. Here I'm on the boards that have become real favorites of mine, the Spruce Crossbows. Immediately after switching to them from my skis, the fun factor returns. I can make skis work for me, but they just don't feel completely right like skiboards do.

        My day at Mt. Rose Ski/Tahoe.

        Thx Scott for the videos. Watching them is the closest I will get to the mountains this season.

        It is also my first look at Mt Rose. Nice local resort for you.
