It was pretty amazing to stand next to the pipe and watch these guys shred the pipe with the same gear and style that they did in 1985. If you are anywhere near Lake Tahoe in March next year, I highly recommend you make it up to Donner Ski Ranch to partake and support the Tahoe Legends of Snowboarding.
