There are many ways to look at all Lake Tahoe has to offer—all of them thrilling. And that’s exactly how Russ Baruh views this majestic corner of the Sierras.
Russ slows to a stop and removes his goggles, looking down he sees the wide expanse of Lake Tahoe below him. It’s lunchtime—Tahoe style—and he is making a run down the slope in a wintertime ritual that he wouldn’t trade for the world. With every path he carves in the fresh snow he remembers his first journey down this mountain—an unforgettable series of spectacular spills—as his father took him down the slopes prior to the 1960 Olympics.
And though his journey down the mountain has ended he is thankful—not just because he has completed the run without the aid of a stretcher—but because he knows there is more—much more to the Tahoe lifestyle that he loves so much. Life seems to have come a full circle as he spends time with his family in Tahoe, fishing from a small pier that extends from the lake’s shoreline, or guiding his children down the same slopes first introduced to him by his father. “Being here reminds you everyday what life is all about,” he says. “It’s like a dream, being able to live and raise a family here—you wonder if you’re going to wake up, but then you stand on Eagle Rock and look down over the lake and the snow-capped eastern slope and know this is no dream.”
