Ways to Keep Playing

Snow Reporter
Friday, March 27, 2020

Let’s be real: It’s been a weird couple of weeks. We seem to be living in an alternate universe where it snows, we’re stuck inside, and everyone is baking sourdough bread.

If you’re like us, you’ve been trying to find creative ways to keep on playing, even if it’s from your living room. And, with that in mind, we killed a few of our newfound hours by making you this list of hobbies to explore, helpful tips to keep your gear in tip-top shape, classic videos to satiate your snow-FOMO and, of course, ways to keep on playing.

Blastr and Level 1 Productions proudly presents FREEZR. Fly along and travel the world with this talented group of professional skiers through all aspects of the sport. Filmed entirely with FPV drones to create the most unique angles ever captured of skiing.


Prep your snowboard (and skis) for storage via this tutorial by our friends at Burton Snowboards:

We’ve already mentioned the sourdough craze… If you’re looking for something different, may we suggest becoming… a Curd Nerd?! This man, Gavin Webber, has been gracing the Internet with friendly, heartwarming cheese tutorials. We could all use a little more cheese in our lives.  Note - this is not an advertisement, we just really like being called Curd Nerds. 

Cheese Please

Miss your friends? Make a collaborative playlist on Spotify (tutorial, here ) and share your favorite social distancing tunes. *Cue - “Dancing With Myself”.

🐶 DO:

Consider adopting a furry buddy (if you are able to do so responsibly now and in the future). The Nevada Humane Society is offering FREE adoptions as they work through the current crisis. You can also donate if you are unable to adopt but would like to support them.

Share creative ways that you’re continuing to let Play Reign Free from home. Tag us in your posts and we will pick winners to send a Sierra swag pak to! 

Keep your local community in mind. While we can’t all be together physically, a strong and connected community is more important now than ever. Do what you can to support yours, wherever it may be. Sierra has donated its excess food to it’s employees, as well as medical supplies to Barton Hospital, in an effort to aid those in need. But, in your case, it can be as simple as choosing to support a local business that may be struggling. For those in South Lake Tahoe, here is a map of local businesses that are still offering services such as delivery or curb-side pickup.
