What You Should Know About North Lake Tahoe Ski Resort with a possibility of Shooting the Ski Lake Tahoe Ad Campaign: Getting the Shot with Corey Rich: Tech Tip: AdoramaTV
If you are a fan of skiing, you should definitely go to North Lake Tahoe, as it offers some of the best skiing in the world. Yet, it is not difficult to choose a ski resort since most of them have good quality. Below are some tips for you:
1. Squaw Valley: Probably has the best terrain in the Tahoe Basin. Amazing facilities (being that it hosted the olympics in 1960). If you like steep terrain, this resort is for you. As for cons, it can be a bit pricey if you don’t have a season pass. Typical day rates are in the upper $ 80s.
2. Alpine Meadows: The terrain is similar to Squaw Valley. Amazing views of the surrounding mountains. And the best part of Alpine is it has more of a local vibe and it is cheaper than many of the other resorts around Lake Tahoe. Often, you can find good deals for Alpine. Keep your eyes open in the supermarkets and ski shops.
3. Northstar at Tahoe: This resort is more of a family resort. If you’re into the really steep and deep skiing, Northstar probably isn’t for you. But if you want to have a great time with the family, Northstar has a quant village and lots of fun runs for any ability level.
4. Sugarbowl: This is one of the first ski resorts in the Tahoe Basin. It’s definitely a classic. Good terrain for any ability, reasonable prices, good views, its got it all.
5. Homewood: A small ski resort on the west shore. Doesn’t have much expert terrain or variety but it does blow out the other ski resorts in one category: the view. Homewood has the best views of the lake out of any Tahoe ski resort.
These are just some of my favorites. There are many more around the Tahoe area, but I would encourage you to check out one of these. Have fun out there!

When shooting for advertising campaigns, your clients will often have a very specific idea about what they want. Your job is to go out into the field and deliver that content.
In this Tech Tip, photographer and director Corey Rich brings you along on one of his advertising shoots for a Ski Lake Tahoe campaign. Working with several young and talented athletes, Corey shares important tips for his process of creating that content. It begins with great communication with the athletes—from using hand signals to speaking on walkie talkies. Corey sets up his exposure on his Nikon D4s, and then goes to work finding the best perspective.
Finally, remember to make the most of the situation while you’re there. The last thing you want is to come back to your clients without plenty of great content for them to choose from.

From Wikipedia: Lake Tahoe is a large freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada mountains of the United States. At a surface elevation of 6,225 ft (1,897 m), it is located along the border between California and Nevada, west of Carson City, Nevada. Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America. Its depth is 1,645 feet (501 metres) making it America’s second-deepest (the deepest is Crater Lake in Oregon, being 300 ft deeper, at 1,945 feet (594 m) deep).
The lake was formed about 2 million years ago and is a part of the Lake Tahoe Basin with the modern lake being shaped during the ice ages. It is known for the clarity of its water and the panorama of surrounding mountains on all sides. The area surrounding the lake is also referred to as Lake Tahoe, or simply Tahoe.
Lake Tahoe is a major tourist attraction in both California and Nevada. It is home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions.
