Our web editor took a little break from skis, stand up paddle boards and kayaks to head down the Eastern Sierra between Lone Pine and Yosemite, here’s a few shots from along the way:
A cold Sunday morning that promised to turn into a spring-like sunny day meant there was no reason to rush for a dawn patrol on Tahoe’s west shore, so I (Greyson, Start Haus web guy) met up with my buddies Paul and Jan at Homewood at a leisurely 9 a.m.-ish to head down to Hidden Peak.
Also known as Bliss Peak, tucked between Jakes and Rubicon just to the north of Emerald Bay, Hidden Peak earns it’s name, tricking you into thinking you’re almost at the top with a false summit. it rises up over 9,000 feet, overlooking both Tahoe to the east and Desolation Wilderness to the west.

With the cold storm that blew through on Wednesday the skiing is fantastic – almost all resorts are open, many top to bottom, and our team has been out getting fresh tracks in boot-deep powder at Northstar, Alpine Meadows, Sugar Bowl and Squaw.
We’re starting a weekly post here at the Start Haus to bring you all the Tahoe ski news you need. We’ll post up racing info, Tahoe ski events, wax calls, ski deals and more here every Friday.
We’ll start off the week with a couple of screaming deals: We have the Salomon BBR 7.9 and Salomon Sentinel on sale for only $299! The BBR is an superhero ski for intermediate skiers looking to get beyond the groomer, and the Sentinel is a rockin’ all mountain ski that’s a solid contender for a Tahoe quiver-of-one.
Don’t be fooled by anyone telling you it’s only raining up here, the skiing is good! Check out this picture from Thursday – Start Haus’s Phil getting freshies on his Blizzard Bonafides, testing out the new Fischer Vacuum Ski Boots:
