I went up for a quick trip to Lake Tahoe for some spring snowboarding and also hit the Gizmodo party at NorthStar. Gizmodo is a gadget site and if your a geek or just love gadgets its definatly worth a daily read.
Gizmodo has a cool party with lots of food drinks, and a pretty kick ass DJ. Rumor has it that their will be a download of what he was playing soon.
The snow was great the weather was about 40-45F and well the lines where non existent. Anyhow here are some pics of the last of the snow season in lake tahoe… Enjoy…
Little GPS tracker on the iP
hone called MotionX
GPS this allowed me to track my average speed, max speed and time. This was on the way back from Tahoe usually a 3+ hr trip.
Ok, Car is a bit packed with my snowboard and had to make sure it wouldn’t hit me in the head while driving up to Tahoe.
Shall I stop for some wine, Sonoma and Napa are so close.
After a drive its always good to refresh with a IPA or two
BridgeTender Bar in Tahoe City. I have been going to this place for years and from the cabin its about 1 mile hike down, of course never made it hiking back up after drinks
My board, about time to upgrade, my bindings are screwed up and almost came off at the end of the day.
Look Ma, no lines!
