It's not about me, it's about us.
We live in fast times and everybody knows it; from the fast food that’s slowly killing us and speed dating, to the instant gratification the younger generations seek and even the older ones in their pursuit of eternal youth and instant “beauty,” via nips and tucks. If all this, “fast,” has you worn down, maybe it’s time to slow your roll and head over to the 14th Annual West Coast Brew Festival. The West Coast Brew Festival may be the largest such festival in Northern California outside of San Francisco, but its humble roots, born and grew from 350 attendees some 14 years ago, have slowly evolved into a must-attend experience event for any serious beer lover in Northern California.

With a foot of new snow having fallen this week all around the higher elevations of Lake Tahoe, skiers, riders, and many non-skiers and non-riders will be making the trek up the hill to get in where they fit in. Nearly 100 events have been scheduled throughout the duration of this epic ten day festival with everything you'd expect at a mountain festival such as sushi eating contests, human bowling, a dog fashion show of sorts and of course a good old fashioned parade in King's beach. This parade shuts down Highway 28 for an hour between Secline and Chipmunk Streets in King's Beach. Most of the events are free and if you have kids, Saturday is shaping up to be a great day in the snow and
It's with a bit of trepidation that I dare write about Snowfest when, after all, everybody knows that there hasn't been much snow around lately. Heck, there hasn't been any meaningful snow all month.

Snow came just in time and then in June, a major Sierra storm dropped enough snow that Squaw Valley opened up for the 4th of July weekend, that is to say, top to bottom or nearly 2,850 feet of vertical fun. Ranked by the American Business Association as a "Top 100 Events," in the United States and top 10 by the Califo
If you’re like most people, the end of the campaign season is a welcome start to a new season; one known by skiers and snowboarders simply as winter. With last year's dismal winter, there's surely to be a lot of pent up demand. And as always, just before the resorts open around Lake Tahoe, there are numerous local events held in Sacramento to get the masses both geared out and hyped up for the promise of powder and play in the mountains. At each event listed below, you can get free lift tickets, "Tahoe swag," and or more. Tonight's event includes too much swag, aka, free stuff, to list as well as a very unique musical duo. Then it's Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday - if one were
It goes without saying, a free lift ticket is worth more than it's weight in gold, literally. So how about two free lift tickets to Squaw Valley or Alpine Meadows AND Mt. Bachelor? That's right, extreme sports movie production house, Teton Gravity Research will be showing Further tonight at Tower Theatre in Sacramento, and all attendees will get free lift lift tickets to two mountains. Further is the second epic movie in the trilogy, (Deeper, Further and Higher), paying homage to extreme back country, big-mountain snowboarding way off the grid. Local homey, Jeremy Jones, (Truckee, CA) is a world class, big mountain, back-country bad ass snowboarder, father, husband, motorcycle enthusias
