Powder Magazine| 10 Feet in 3 Days?!

  It’s difficult to imagine being blown away by anything snow related after last year’s record snowfall totals. Houses were buried, bodies ached from the constant cycle of shovel, ski, shovel, shovel, ski….   This year started off slow until the early March forecast honed in on Tahoe. 5-10 feet in three days was hard… Continue reading Powder Magazine| 10 Feet in 3 Days?!

This and the the other outdoor photos shared here are in support of a short film related to the silencing of the siren, and support for the Washiw.
