Photographer Chris Turner bursts with enthusiasm after a pre-dawn trek to a peak on Old 40 above Donner Lake. “The air was cold and full of life that morning,” he said. “When one stands on top of the world with no one around and you know first turns are yours; very cool feeling.” Photography by Chris Turner | Rim Fire Photography.

 

The magic of winter

“The feeling of effortlessly arcing your skis or board edge to edge over freshly groomed snow is better than that first sip of hot coffee,” writes Jenn Sheridan in her piece “Making corduroy at Mt. Rose.”

That’s a feeling that every skier and snowboarder has experienced, and Jenn wanted to get a look at the behind-the-scenes magic that happens each night when the lifts stop turning and groomers get to work. She joined Chris Anderson recently at Mt. Rose and shares her ride-along in this issue.

The staff at the Tahoe Weekly wishes Jenn good luck as she takes some time off for an adventure over the next few months. Jenn will be heading to the Snowsport Industry Association in Denver, Colo., where she’ll be representing locally based Coalition Snow, making women-specific skis and snowboards. She’ll also be reporting from the show for Tahoe Weekly, and then she’ll be hitting the road hosting demo days for Coalition at ski resorts around the West. Visit Coalition Snow on Facebook to learn more about the demo days.

Snowshoeing is one of the most inexpensive, easy and family friendly ways to enjoy winter, and writer Tim Hauserman shares his tips for getting started and some of his favorite spots for a moonlight trek or a daytime adventure in the woods in this edition for “Snowshoeing: Walking on snow.”

Priya Hutner’s piece of “Healing foods for cold season” could not come at a better time as everyone has been battling colds in Tahoe and Truckee, including the author herself who put these remedies into action.
