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 :P

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!

In the background you can see a tiny bit of Lake Tahoe

You are here.

Snow on the mountain but dry down below.

Good day of snowboarding in the spring… Off to the Gizmodo party for some food, drinks and prizes.

Bye bye Northstar.  This is a picture of the backside.

Till next season, now time to dust off the mountain bike.

One of my close friends has finally release his wine iPhone application that will save you lots of time and effort scanning the shelves at stores and wine shops.  I myself am still new to wine and try out various types of wine, but using this application I can look it up in the db, and read any reviews before buying it.

Cor.kz Iphone Wine Application

Here is a quote from the site:

They say that life’s too short to drink bad wine. We couldn’t agree more. That’s why we’ve created Cor.kz for the iPhone. In seconds, you can access CellarTracker’s information on over 530,000 bottles of wine… right from your phone!
Virtually any bottle of wine can be found using Cor.kz – really! So stop taking chances on the bottles you buy at the market and in restaurants. Simply type in the name of the wine and you’ll get reviews and ratings from experts and from the huge CellarTracker community of wine drinkers.

If you would like to have a huge database of wine in your pocket head on over to the iTunes store here.

If you want more information head on over to their website Cor.kz

Tahoe City Meadows

Tahoe City Meadows,
originally uploaded by Gate-Way.

This is very close to the cabin in Tahoe City, in fact its about 25 min walk from the cabin. Each Year this meadow changes from snow, to a swamp, to a nice field. Just thought I would share this picture from Lake Tahoe. It’s been a while since I had a chance to update my blog.

Of course this was during Memorial Day weekend, usually this time of year its in the 70’s and shorts weather, but we ran into snow this time around.
