With the season nearly upon us, it’s been crunch time here at the offices of DSJ WHQ. Literally “crunch time” as a matter of fact. with only about a month to the average opening day, we need to start getting serious about those workouts. The experts at our Fitness Lab (FLab) are attempting to find some geek with an iphone to test a neat looking new app called Snow Fitness Workouts HD. Supposedly featuring about 100 ski specific exercises, we’re looking for an in-depth technical review, not to mention a total “Hermanator” metamorphosis.
The DSJ Meteorology Dept., NorCal Div. reports that Tahoe has probably already received more snow from it’s first storm of the season than it got all last year! Exaggeration? Maybe, but there’s nothing like a three-foot snowfall to get the ball rolling. This week’s powerful early winter storm in the Sierra has prompted two Cali ski resorts to fire up their lifts. Squaw Valley will open for a single benefit day on Thursday, while Boreal on Donner Summit will get things started for the season on Friday. Mammoth to open 11/8.
Finally, the folks down at the DSJ Marketing Dept. would like to give a shout out to our newest meetup.com/DesertSnowJunkies sponsors Lifestylez.com and Action Ride Shop. Both are offering nice discounts to all SnowJunkies.
Lifestylez represents a variety of college ski and snowboarding Winter and Spring Break tours. Their discounted packages focus on the highest quality products that include college ski vacations to Aspen, Breckenridge, Vail, Winter Park, Telluride, Crested Butte,  Jackson Hole, and many other mountains.

Action Ride Shop is located in Gilbert, making it extra convenient for those east valley riders headed for Sunrise. In addition to a full retail and service shop, they specialize in providing a top notch demo program for skis and boards. For a very affordable and convenient way to get the entire family set up with gear, check out their unique “season lease” program.
