They say breakfast is the most important meal, especially when you are working or playing hard. Last Tuesday, JMA Ventures kicked off its new monthly Tuesday breakfast club at Alpine Meadows Ski Area where business colleagues enjoyed a hearty hot breakfast of eggs, waffles, bacon and sausage, and fresh baked goods (the croissants were the best this side of France), networked with each other (both at breakfast and on the chairlifts), and got in some quintessential Tahoe winter exercise on the mountain all for just $25! Alpines first breakfast club morning on the slopes proved to be stellar. With wonderful, warm sun shining brightly, skiers cruised over immaculately groomed slopes that were smoother than a babys butt. By noon, with double-digit runs under their belts, everyone headed back to the office with a smile on his or her face and with legs feeling the burn.

Everyone agreed: this monthly meeting is a winner. So circle your calendar Februarys Tuesday breakfast club is scheduled for Homewood Mountain Resort on Feb. 19. Some of those breaking bread at the breakfast club were Renate and Jim Moore, Mitch Clarin, Hal Slear, Dan Wilkins, Daniel Cates, Ellis Croder, Jeff Ridgel, Allan Marshall, Hoopie Hoopingarner of Homewood Mountain Resorts, Jim Courcier, Robert Mann of Plumas Bank, Sam Harrosh, Dale Chamblin, Patrick Wright of the Tahoe Conservancy, and Allan Marshall of Wells Fargo Bank. Also stopping by for breakfast were Fern Elufson, whos back working at Alpine, and Rick Brown of JMA.
