Tahoe Legend Interview ~ Greg Jones

Greg Jones has been a lifetime local of North Tahoe learning to ski as a small child from his legendary father Bud Jones.  Greg has spent his entire life in the ski industry, first as an Olympic medal winner and for nearly 40 years as a coach.  He has coached many of the greats from Tahoe including Daron Rahlves, Julia Mancuso, Marco Sullivan and Travis Ganong among hundreds of others. You can really get a feeling for Greg’s love of skiing and true passion for coaching in his latest interview with Lake Tahoe TV (follow the link “event videos” on our home page).   Greg, pictured above on the left, is the “coaches coach”, having trained three generations of ski coaches. We want to thank Greg for everything he has done for this region and for his continued work with the Lake Tahoe Ski Club to keep the future of Tahoe skiing strong.  A great Museum partner ~ Thanks Greg!

Welcome Lake Tahoe TV!

We want to welcome Lake Tahoe TV to the Boatworks Mall as our new neighbor.  Within a few days of their arrival they conducted interviews with several of the mall businesses including a live interview with museum co-founder and Tahoe historian David C. Antonucci.  Additionally, we had a surprise visit from US Olympic medal winner Greg Jones who gave a fun interview about skiing, coaching our kids and his other passions fishing and baseball.  You can see David’s most recent Lake Tahoe TV interviews on our website under the “event/press” page and “event video” link.  Thanks so much Lake Tahoe TV and welcome!

Happy New Year!

Another Great Year for the Museum coming up in 2015.  Looking back we want to thank those people that really helped us in 2014.  First, Channel Properties for providing the space – without them the Museum in the Mall would not exist. Next, Hal Slear and his staff at the James Harrold Galleries for all of their great help and support – without them we couldn’t remain open. Thanks also all of the ski clubs, groups and skiing professionals that have added greatly to the museum with their presence and donations. And Finally, all of the wonderful donations from the public that keep us motivated and viable.  Thanks for everything and Happy 2015!
