Tahoe Event Photographer | International Women’s Ski Day

On Saturday, December 14th (I know, I know, it’s FEBRUARY oh jeez, MARCH) we celebrated International Women’s Ski Day out at Kirkwood Mountain Resort in conjunction with SheJumps.  The day was intended to bring women together into a unified group to celebrate girls in the mountains.

“We believe that by encouraging girls and women of all ages and abilities to storm mountains on 12/14/13 we are supporting a strong, healthy, and vibrant community of women in the mountains,” says Tamra Geryk of SheJumps.

It’s pretty difficult to have a bad day on the mountain when you’re shredding with a posse of strong amazing women.  To all the ladies who were with me that day, sorry it took me so long to get to the photos.

Missed the event and want to join in on the fun?  

Keep an eye on the Pacific Coast Events Page for SheJumps.  There are Get the Girls’ Out Days every month in the Tahoe Basin at various local resorts and they are a great way to find new friends to ski with.

Tahoe Ski Photographer | Homewood Mountain

I have to give Homewood Mountain Ski Resort a rousing round of applause for accommodating my models and I for a last minute Tahoe Ski Photography session last week.

  Neither myself nor any of my friends had skied Homewood before and I must say, this is seriously negligent on my part!  In addition to having some of the best views of Lake Tahoe of any of the ski resorts in the Tahoe Basin, Homewood has a welcoming and charming staff, a legitimate and impressive park, and a family friendly vibe.  You can relax between runs with an exceptional view of Lake Tahoe at the Big Blue Bar all the while saving some dollars: a 3 pack of tickets to Homewood will only set you back $59/day.

For unrivaled views of the lake, superb service and some quality steeps and tree skiing, come visit Tahoe and check out Homewood Mountain Ski Resort.   While you’re there, don’t forget to eat breakfast at my favorite breakfast joint on the lake: The Fire Sign Cafe.

Tahoe Ski Photographer | Moores Visit Tahoe

My friend and best travel partner ever and his daughter came to visit us over the MLK weekend.  M had been begging her dad to see snow for a year, the hilarity being that as soon as they returned home to Austin the temperature promptly dropped into the teens and they announced a Snowpocolypse.  I had already decided that Kirkwood Mountain Resort would offer her the safest and best place to learn to ski over a busy holiday weekend.  On the first day, we placed her in an all day group lesson.  Things were looking dire the first half, but by the end of the afternoon she was shredding Chair 1 with the best of them.

Our 2nd day out, Boyfriend, who teaches ski lessons and coaches the Junior Freeride Team at Kirkwood took M out all day for more lessons.  By our third day on the hill, M was shredding Buckboard on Chair 11 with no problem!  Erik’s only problem now is that he’s going to have to return to Tahoe every year to quench her thirst for snow.

Coming to Tahoe with your family and want a safe, fun, gorgeous environment to learn to ski?  There is no better place than Kirkwood Mountain Resort.  Book a private lesson with Buddy Blackwelder through Expedition Kirkwood for your kids and they’ll be out-chasing you in the pow in no time!  Have a mid-day thirst?  7800 Bar and Grill is where the locals hang out.  The drafts are only $5 and the nachos are extreme and layered with skill: none of this pile of chips with stuff only on the top!    On Saturday nights there is free live music and long time Kirkwood locals staff the joint.
