Exploring OUR Backyard: Board Day Trifecta

How many places in the world can you golf, go snowboarding, and hit a lake all in the same day?

Lucky for those of us who live in Reno/Tahoe, you can successfully do all these activities in one day.

Mike West, a senior sales executive for Sinclair Broadcast Group, and his good friend Paul Shonnard of Nevada Orthopedics took up that exact challenge a few weeks ago.

Start off in the morning by hitting the links, head to the slopes in the afternoon, and finish the day on a boat.

First stop was Sierra Sage Golf Course where the two played nine holes while riding around on golf boards. Next, the duo drove 45 minutes up to Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe for some spring riding, and finished the day wakeboarding at Hidden Lake, a small private lake just south of Reno.

"We live in a place that can allow us endless opportunities," said Shonnerd.

"Golfing, skiing, wakeboarding, snowboarding, all in a day," added West. "Oh my gosh! This is the greatest place in the world to live!"

Hard to argue with that.
