Saturday night a wide spectrum of the greater Tahoe community came together to help launch the very first Womens Ski Patrol Calendar for Squaw and ALpine Meadows. Braving one of the first winter storms of the season, everyone who came celebrated with these amazing women. Seven of the all star cast featured in the calendar were present signing autographs. In addition, everyone crowded into gallery three to see a brief slide show and presentation by Keoki Flagg, Lynn Gibson from Gallery Keoki, Tom Feiten from Squaw Valley and the Patrollers.
Finally , after a journey of many years ELEMENTAL has been released. Last nights gathering was an amazing celebration. So many wonderful people have played their part in helping this long anticipated creative project come to life. The book has impacted all bringing an unmistakably new paradigm to Gallery Keoki. Sharing this moment with the entire creative team, my family and so many friends makes this path so worth while.
Thank You all! Keoki
Life in the Chugach expands ones imagination…It can easily be mistaken for the prize at the end of the Rainbow. It has become an annual ritual for me…One that continues to test my boundaries, my patience, as I have come to see it as a personal test in perserverence.
Luckily we started off with a great start, 5 stellar runs that had me once again remembering what great snow felt like…
In tote with my good friends Will and Brian Sharpes we and new buddies Jack and John Cunnigham with PNH guide Andrew Eisentark we had one of those days that reminded us all how good it was to be alive…Living the dream
On the second day weather set in so we busted out a different set of gear and headed out to explore the Sheridan glacier. It had been awhile since I had been there last, but it felt like little had changed. We spent the day playing on and inside of its surreal world.
We are very excited for this year’s fundraiser for the Squaw Valley Avalanche Rescue Dog and Education Fund. Join us at the gallery on Saturday, February 22nd at 6:00pm to meet these amazing dogs! We will raffle a “paw”tographed patrol dog image as well as other prizes.
We are very excited to start off the Olympic’s celebration (and the fresh snow in Squaw Valley) with a special screening event of the film CAN DO: The Legacy of Jimmy Huga, one of the first of two Americans to win a metal in Skiing at the Olympics. The film pays tribute to Jimmie’s pioneering vision to help people live better with MS. We will be sharing the evening with local Olympians Tamara McKinney, Daron Rahlves and life long Squaw buddy Wayne Poulsen.
Please brave the storm and join us for this exciting event! Saturday, February 8th, 6:00-7:30pm. Celebration reception immediately following at Uncorked- the village at Squaw Valley. Please RSVP. Space limited.
We are very excited to share Keoki’s interview with fellow photographer Karen Hutton. See what inspires these two photographers in this great video!
This past weekend was incredible. My friends McKenzie and Kenny got married in Squaw, the celebration was incredibly beautiful, fun and true.
For four days we came together and celebrated with great family from close and afar. We feasted on wonderful food and live music. The fun and joy resonated off the walls of our beautiful valley as we played into the starry night again and again.
The light was magnificent and shined in the eyes and hearts of all who came to share.
To McKenzie and Kenny…I wish you the very best in life together. May you live, love and continue to inspire everyone who is lucky enough to cross your serendipitous path.
