Column | DRIVEN

Here’s to the obsessed, the irreverent, the unknown and undiscovered. When living in an area that churns out professional athletes with Spartan efficiency, it’s easy to get lost in the hype. It’s easy to follow the big names and cover every move of Tahoe’s most talented, which is perfectly fine. They deserve it. But what about the scene out of the spotlight; indifferent to films, medals, and sponsorships, where individuals pursue their passions not for fame or money, but for fun, for fun’s sake?

In this series, we celebrate passion by profiling locals who personify this pursuit, and investigating the fire that drives folks to bike beyond the twilight hours, run to the point of puking, balance work and play on a knife’s edge, and fish when it’s so cold the fly line freezes in its guides.

  • In the next installment of DRIVEN we profile an endurance runner, a group of night riding mountain bikers, and a skier who finds the balance between a life in the outdoors and running a local nonprofit.

  • Introducing our new series: For Fun’s Sake, a series of profiles that look beyond the spotlight to find folks who pursue their passions not for fame or money, but for fun, for fun’s sake. First up, 15-year-old fly fisherman Finn Loper.
