Hotdoggin’ with Alex Taran

House Rider Chases Winter into The Sierras, Pees Pants

The Wild One herself is at it again. House Rider Alex Taran (@alex_taran), our very own skiing version of Patti Smith, is by far the gnarliest chica on two planks on any side of the Mississippi. This past March while California’s winter drought was sucking up the passion from “normal” skiers, Alex ventured deep into the Sierra backcountry to chase winter down. Along with her was everybody’s favorite skiing vegan, David “Cruchy Granola” Steele (@davidpowdersteele). The duo had to constantly change plans and routes due to adverse weather, bulletproof snow, road closures, and every other curve ball under the sun life offers up when a mission is in progress. Hardship? Ha, no way. These two rolled with the punches and ski’d some killer lines including “Hole In The Wall”  by Mammoth Lakes. The trip was so much fun in fact that it was hard to control bodily functions…they don’t call her Sh*tshow for nothin’.
