MIRKWOOD, Calif. — Tahoe’s acting Emissary of Stoke Steven “Scoop” Scooper lost control of his stoke level Wednesday after receiving word that Mirkwood's upper elevations had received over three feet of fluffy, blower snow.
Upon learning the severity of the big dump, the man suffered what medical officials are referring to as a "stoke attack," a condition caused by out-of-control, spiking stoke levels. Physical symptoms include panting, yelling and giving high fives to random strangers.
“He kept screaming something about his stoke level rising,” South Lake resident Mikey Babcock, 26, told TGR. “The dude was, like, dry heaving stoke."
After the onset of the stoke attack, Scooper allegedly rode pow for several hours. Attempts to hospitalize the snow reporter were thwarted by his repeated disappearance into what local experts are calling "the white room."
Hours later — after tracking up most of the hill — Scooper was taken to Mirkwood's medical clinic, where he was given horse tranquilizers and shown looped golf footage in an effort to calm him down.
There's no hope for him — he's just too stoked.
Attending physicians were reportedly stunned by the rapid onset of the stoke attack, but heartened by the eventual de-stoking of the overexcited spokesperson. However, despite seeing progress, many stoke experts believe Scooper will quickly redevelop his condition, and get stoked again upon release.
"He's kinda out of options," Scooper's doctor said. "It's supposed to snow another foot tomorrow night. There's no hope for him — he's just too stoked."

MOUNTAIN TOWN, USA — A snowboarder’s morale was crushed Friday morning after discovering that his local hill’s powder snow report was completely out of touch with actual snow conditions on the ground. Promising 14 inches of “blower” off-piste and “packed powder” everywhere else, the Marmot Mountain snow report eventually convinced 31-year-old rider Sam Rooney to get out of bed and rally for early turns, despite seeing sheets of rain falling outside his low-elevation residence.

There are a myriad of ways to get what you want, and in a ski town one’s coffers can include much more than the traditional dollar. Knowing what you’ve got, and identifying what others are bringing to the table, can go a long way toward “making it”. Below are a couple of categories in which one could be rich:1. Social Currency Are you the hot (literally) new thing? Or maybe the most fun, drunk guy at the bar? These things can get one far, but certainly not all the way, and unfortunately
JACKSON, Wyo. — Saying he’s done wasting time and is ready to devote his entire winter season to ripping pow, 4-year-old toddler dirtbag Caden Henry officially dropped out of preschool Monday so he could move to Jackson Hole and finally have the winter of a lifetime he's been waiting a whole year since learning to ski to enjoy. Instead of spending the winter coloring, learning the ABC’s and counting to 10, the grom plans to chase storms around the Tetons while living out of his retrofitted
