Meet Your Neighbor: Tahoe City’s Dylan Thompson

Amy Edgett/Sierra Aun

Tell me what you guys are doing. Today, we are embarking on a magical journey, building a backcountry jump.

What, pray tell, is a backcountry jump?

A backcountry jump is out away from

And how big is the jump?

It’s looking to be about 50 feet ”

just send it.

Tell me about the construction.

We built it with our own two hands and shovels.

Did it take long?

Some of us have been working on it all day. It’s the first of the season.

You said you’d lived in Tahoe

What about summer?

I’m really into fly fishing, traveling, mountain biking, here and there.

Tell me one thing your neighbors might not know about you.
