Here's a brief introduction to my (Jared Manninen) YouTube channel and Lake Tahoe-oriented outdoor recreation website, https://TahoeTrailGuide.com
. Please note that I treat hiking, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing as much as an internal and self-reflexive experience as I do an actual outdoor adventure. And, it wasn't my intention to boast about my accomplishments when introducing myself. Rather, I'm illustrating my diverse background and that I believe I have a unique voice when it comes to discussing outdoor recreation.
I wrote and produced the Tahoe Trail Guide collection of articles and short videos about hiking, backpacking, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing with the beginner and intermediate adventurer in mind. This is the demographic for whom I most often served while working in the outdoor recreation industry at Lake Tahoe, so I treat these informational blogs as extensions of the conversations I've had with those customers. That said, expert cross-country skiers could probably take away something of value from these articles. Just know that I don't intend to specifically address performance or race-oriented philosophy, technique, or gear selection in this series.
Although I advocate venturing out of your comfort zone, you need to know your limits and when to turn back. Tahoe Trail Guide and its contributors are not liable for property loss or damage, personal injury, or death. Always consult multiple sources when venturing into the backcountry, and always be prepared for the worst case scenario. Your safety is your responsibility.
