NevadaGram #211 - Power Dining in Carson City, Skiing Elko, Driving Dirt Roads and More

19 Carson City Restaurants Legislators and Lobbyists Will Visit in 2019 You Should Too! by Barry Smith When 63 legislators and hundreds of lobbyists arrive in Carson City for the 2019 session of the Nevada Legislature, which begins February 4th, they'll continue a tradition that dates to the beginnings of Territorial government when Abe Curry and his cohorts settled in at the Warm Springs Hotel: they'll talk about it over food and drink in Carson City's finest restaurants. While mixing government and gastronomy might sound like a recipe for heartburn, it's actually a fascinating opportunity for the Nevada constituency to simultaneously rub and bend elbows with their elected representatives. There are power breakfasts, power lunches and power dinners. Be assured that, since the 120-day limit was imposed on legislative sessions, there isn't as much power drinking as in the freewheeling old days. But it isn't exactly work, work, work either.Read more

Sheepherders' Gathering a Success Foks traveled from as far as 700 miles to make it to the 16th annual Sheepherders' Gathering at the Border Inn. Friday night offered up fun stories about sheepherding (mis)adventures, music, and cowboy poetry by Waddie Mitchell. Saturday's events included a film screening, more great cowboy poetry, and a delicious Basque family-style dinner that filled the Border Inn to capacity. The Front Porch Pickers performed their musical magic to a full house and included the audience with numerous sing-a-longs and foot stomping beats. More coverage is found in the Millard County Chronicle Progress. Fire and Ice Festival With its new format, the Fire and Ice Festival in Ely had something for everyone, indoors and out. The Ely Birkebeiner showcased not only cross country skiing, but also a snowshoe race and a fat-tire mountain bike race. Conditions turned out to be great, with just enough snow to make it all work.Read more

Skiing Elko's SnoBowl

Elko SnoBowl

by Curtis Fong, "the Guy from Tahoe" When skiers talk about skiing in Nevada, they bring up well know resorts such as Heavenly, Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe and Diamond Peak. but, no one ever mentions or even knows about Elko Snobowl. I met Roche Bush the General Manager of Elko Snowbowl, 11 years ago while skiing with Joe Royer and Ruby Mountain Heliski Adventure. It was the first time I heard there was a “Ski Hill” in Elko. The next day, I visited and made a few runs to get acquainted with Elko Snobowl. I came back this past week to meet up with Roche and James Wiley, the Director of Elko Parks & Recreation to talk about Elko Snobowl Ski & Bike Park.
