Snowskating isn't a new concept. Yes, you heard that right. Snowskating. Essentially skateboarding on snow, snowskating traces its roots back to the 1970's. Originally sold as a toy or snowboard without bindings, snowskates have come a long way in their innovation and production.
Babe Shredder Tahoe took to the snow on St. Patrick's Day for their first ever Hovland snowskates demo at Mt. Rose. Even Babe Shredder Founder, Ash rode a snowskate for her first time. "It was so refreshing to be on the snow and have absolutely no idea what I was doing!" she recalls. Babe Shredders took turns trying out different Hovland decks and encouraging one another to inch steeper and steeper up the mountain for a longer ride. Another Tahoe Babe Shredder mentioned, "it was challenging to try something different but we did it together and that was the best part!"

Babe Shredder Austin learned new tricks last week - how to throw axes!
In February, Babe Shredder celebrity Josh Pennell taught our Babe Shredder Austin crew the basics of axe throwing. Our "battle session" at Urban Axes started with a round-robin tournament challenging our core and balance with every throw. We all worked up a sweat and were proud of the workout we were in for!
In addition, we celebrated Board Captain, Valerie's birthday with Ashley and Gaby, our guest Babe Shredders from Texas Ski Ranch cable wakeboard park! Warmer weather is on the horizon and we can't wait to get back on the water soon! Stay tuned for our March Board Meeting!

Babe Shredder Tahoe took part in one of the best blue-bird days at Squaw Valley this week! Time was spent learning new terrain and even a first ascent to the famous Palisades for a run down National. Our Babe Shredder Celebrities included US Army Reserve Katie from Vermont and our favorite daytime drone photographer, Ryan Platt, IG @rytoastmedia.
Our midday tailgate/ dance party brought us back to life to charge the rest of the day and we even Rick-Rolled the Tram. In case you're not familiar with the Rick-Rolled activity mentioned - you will not find it here.
