The snow students just finished up an amazing trip to Lake Tahoe, California. For some of the students this was their first trip to Tahoe ever. We stayed right down the road from the California base lodge at Heavenly and only minutes from the beach. We got extremely lucky and our first day on snow was a powder day at Heavenly! Heavenly is known for their tree riding and incredible views of the lake. The next day they got to ride fresh snow at Sierra at Tahoe. There were endless rocks and logs to jump in the trees. The day began with giant flurries and ended in sunshine.
On Wednesday the students packed up and headed south to Mammoth Mountain. Mammoth is one of the most diverse mountains in the United States, they have amazing parks, breath taking steeps and a huge variety off piste terrain. For most of the students, the park was their favorite part. The students really enjoyed the South side of the lake, but the next stop was Northstar on the north side of the lake. Northstar has some of the best parks in Lake Tahoe and even has a 22 foot superpipe. The students loved all of the creative features in the park! They enjoyed Northstar so much that they went two times in a row.
The students also got to check out Woodward Tahoe. Woodward is an indoor training facility with Olympic trampolines, an indoor skatepark, and ramps with foam pits. They had fun jumping, skating and learning parkour with Shelby on Woodward’s big tumble floor. They capped off their epic adventure by watching the sunrise over the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco as they headed home.
The skate students just finished up a great trip through Southern Oregon and Northern California. They started the trip heading south on 1-5. They spent their first night in Eugene. The skate park is lit in Eugene so the boys got to skate at night once they arrived. The Eugene skatepark is built under a freeway and is one of the best in Oregon.
The next morning they continued south towards Sacramento. Along the way they got to stretch their legs at a few parks like, Winston, Shasta Mountain, and Red Bluff California Skatepark. They spent a whole day in Sacramento skating the Mather Sports Complex Park. It was one of their favorite parks of the trip.
They got front line seats that to see the Sacramento Kings VS the Chicago Bulls game! After the game they got a tour of the practice stadium and the students shot hoops for a while. a The next morning they headed towards Santa Cruz. They stopped along the way in San Jose and skated the famous Red Park.
The night before Santa Cruz they had a great dinner at a Japanese habachi restaurant! They spent a day in Santa Cruz and skated most of what it has to offer; 4 skate parks, a DIY ditch and then of course some beach time! They eneded their trip in San Francisco and got to shred in the city!
Until next time,
