Pine Scented Skiing

The sap is running in the pine trees and it smells wonderful up on the mountain. I'll be skiing along and catch a strong whiff of pine and it smells soooooooooo good. You know what it smells like? It smells like spring time in the Sierra mountains!

Adam and Kristen drove down from Portola, CA to ski Sierra with Jack and I today. Once we finally met up we had some really fun runs together. Hard to believe the end of ski season is right around the corner, it sure seemed to fly right by, time always does when your having fun...

Spring Lake Tahoe Snowstorm

Snow on the Subaru
Last night a spring snowstorm lashed out at the Tahoe Basin and blanketed the upper elevations of the Sierra mountains with a fresh coat of snow 20-30 inches deep. Down at Lake level we even got a foot! I saw this thing coming and we were prepared for this storm. We were early to rise and shine and wasted no time heading up to Sierra at Tahoe. We were early enough for eighth chair which meant I was the first one down a run called Eastabout. I had fresh untracked powder from top to bottom, it was awesome!

Buying Phish Tickets

I ask you, does life get any better than this? I'm sitting here watching TPIR with Drew and attempting to buy Phish Tickets online for the upcoming 2010 Phish Summer Tour. And talk about buying Phish Tickets, we got lucky and snagged many of the hard to get tickets, we now have tickets for 20 of the 29 Phish Tour Dates this summer. We somehow snagged 2 tickets for Phish Thursday Aug 5th and 2 Tickets for Friday's Phish Concert at the Greek Theatre, San Francisco in Berkley right off of Ticketmaster when the went on sale. Buy Phish Tickets from StubHub!Then Jacks nimble fingers on the capthca word puzzle scored us 2 Telluride Phish tickets with Camping for 2 in Telluride Town Park. I have no idea how he lucked out with those Telluride Tickets because the competition was extremely fierce. We also purchased pavilion tickets for a bunch of other shows like Deer Creek, Camden, Charlotte, NC to name a few.

You know what all this Phish ticket talk means? We are going to doing a ton of traveling and blogging this summer, sharing all the action with pictures and videos from the Phish concerts, shakedown street and the road whenever possible. Last year we drove 30,000 miles and this year is shaping up nicely, we were really lucky buying Phish tickets this year.

While we are on the subject, I wonder why we were able to buy such good Phish tickets online from Ticketmaster this year, could it have anything to do with the big bust? The fed's busted a ring of lowlife ticket scalpers that were snapping up all the choice tickets to not only our phish concerts, but all prime music and sports event too. Bruce "The Boss" Springsteen and Trent Reznor of NIN were instrumental in bringing attention to the problem last year and apparently someone was listening. I hope they throw the book at em', scumbag's.
