High Fives Winter Empowerment Athlete: Landon McGauley

February 2nd, 2011 by

The High Fives Non-Profit Foundation (Truckee, CA), recently completed the first chapter in what is known as ‘The Landon McGauley Project.’

To say that this is an unfortunate story about a 15 year old skier and downhill mountain biker from Quesnel, British Columbia, which involved a tragic biking accident on July 4th, 2010 is for the birds. The life we live is way too short to constantly be in a state of remorse, sorrow or regret. In the words of our late, great friend CR Johnson, “Live your life, love your life, with no regrets!”

“Don’t miss the Daytona 500 of skiing this weekend at Alpine Meadows!” – The first stop of the Rahlves Banzai will be held this weekend at Alpine Meadows.

If your into bad ass ski racing or your just some sicko who likes to watch huge crashes this event is for you. So head out this weekend to Alpine Meadows for the kick off to the Rahlves Banzai.

What the HELL to do in Tahoe this week

January 7th, 2011 by

I feel like I’m waking up from a dream today.  I have not given a DAMN about what’s going on in Tahoe the past 6 weeks.  The skiing has been what’s going on, period.  Right now we are finally getting a break from the La La Land La Nina insanity and I gotta admit, it feels good.  So this is definitely the weekend to get out there and damage a few brain cells and feel good about it.

Personally, I’m gonna get weird and go see Vinyl for free tonite.  I’ve seen Vinyl many times in San Francisco and their style of Latin Funk gets females crazy on the dance floor.
