Aloha, Maui Steve!


In 2011-12 Maui Steve went on an incredible adventure in the Maui Ski Bus to visit 104 ski resorts across the U.S. and Canada. As he went along on this journey, he continuously received a TON of grief for leaving out one of the best resorts, Sierra-at-Tahoe! Thanks to all those comments informing Maui Steve of our awesomeness, we received a special visit from the Maui Ski Bus today.

Coolest part about this bus, in my opinion, is that it runs 100% off fermented pineapple juice! So Maui Steve gets to cruise around enjoying the best Mother Nature has to offer without harming her one bit, I love it!

I had the pleasure of chatting with Maui Steve this afternoon to get more insight on this awesome world tour. He shared that he started this journey at the beginning of last season based purely off his own curiosity and appetite for new and challenging terrain. Maui Steve seeks out double black diamonds, preferably shoulders and bumps under the chair line – or as he calls it, “Hollywood Alley.”

Maui Steve found himself stoked on the adventure zone animation around the resort and our very own “Hollywood Alleys,”  especially Dynamite. He found the ultimate cure for his Tahoe hangover at our 360 Smokehouse as he indulged heavily in some delectable Jalapeño fries, what an excellent choice! After getting a handle on his hangover, he shared that he felt right at home with the “rustic, log cabin in the woods feel” of Sierra-at-Tahoe and couldn’t wait to return next season for his upcoming world tour!

To get the full Maui Ski Bus experience, I  went on a short ride to scope out the famous bus. While my mom has told me many times never to get on a bus with strangers, I’ve always been a rebel so I figured, “What the heck?!” The inside of his bus has quite the rustic, log cabin in the woods feel so I can see why he felt so at home at our resort.

The next world tour for the Maui Ski Bus will start in November 2013, right here in Lake Tahoe and we’re thrilled to be on his itinerary this time around! Mahalo Maui Steve, see you next year!
