I have been documenting the building of the new Tamarack lodge since the end of the summer. It’s been really interesting to watch the building process, especially over the last month were it really started to take shape. Heavenly hasn’t had a new on mountain lodge in over 31 years, I definitely think it was over due. The Tamarack lodges is probably one of the nicest lodges I’ve seen in the Tahoe Basin, simple design yet well done with attention to detail. Think I found a new spot for a Beer. I’m really proud of this edit, I dug up some old 1957 footage from our Heavenly archive, which was a honor to play with. It incorporated well into this piece. From start to finish only 135 days.
Here is a video I shot/edited and was produced by Fred Wymore for Heavenly Mountain. There are lots of new improvements this year at Heavenly, the flagship improvement being the new Tamarack Lodge at the top of the Gondola. Also new Vail wide is Epic Mix, which reminds me of the vertical plus program that Sierra at Tahoe had back in the day. Should be fun to track my skiing stats for the season.
Dane Henry and myself had the honor of producing a promo piece for the Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority and the Amgen Tour of California. The Amgen tour is the largest cycling event in America, and resembles the famous Tour de France style of race. The tour has eight stops around California, starting here in South Lake Tahoe.
We had an amazing morning for filming, I was part of the ground crew, and setup on fannette island in emerald bay to interview the mayor. Dane was buzzing around us in a helicopter shooting the amazing aerial footage and also put together the edit. This video was shot, edited and delivered all in one day.
