A gift that kept on giving!

Read the fine print on your lift ticket. By definition, Tahoe Ski Bums enjoy a “hazardous” sport. What better stocking stuffer could you get family or friends than an affordable membership to the California Shock Trauma Air Rescue, otherwise known as CALSTAR, “just in case.”


Waiting for an opening day is like waiting for Christmas morning. Well, Diamond Peak is giving us an early gift of top-to-bottom skiing and riding on Dec. 20, 2014. The normal start time is 9 a.m., but the resort says it will start spinning lifts as soon as they are ready that day. Come join me for the season-opening excitement!
