My first year in Tahoe I drove a piece of shit Honda Civic and lived way up in the total downer. I use to get stuck driving to the hill on almost every powder morning. I would head out the door at 6 am gunning for a spot in the first salvo to hit KT that day and boom 3 feet of standing snow at the foot of my driveway. Inevitably, my Civic would get stuck and I would spen the next 2 hours digging her out. Exhausted and beat down from a physically and mentally draining morning I roll up to the KT line. It’s five passed eight the the line is already thirty chairs deep. Clicking into my skis I see one of my co workers a few yards ahead. “Hey Tim, Matt wants you in the shop for the day shift by 9:30.” All I could think of was one thing.

Except from “There Is Something About McConkey” by MSP The next season I moved into John Bossie’s “Love Octagon” where I could ski down to KT on powder mornings.
