Nutrition Q&A

Is it worth splurging on exotic juices that claim health benefits?
While juices made from mangosteen, noni, goji, açai, and others are high in antioxidants, there's little evidence that these trendy "superfruits" are better for you than other dark-colored berries. The best advice: Just eat a variety of brightly colored fruits and vegetables daily.

Since 2003, Jason Dobbs, 27 (left), has logged 95 days per year at Squaw Valley, coaching eight-to-18-year-olds on the Squaw Valley Freestyle and Freeride Team, which produced Olympic gold medalist Jonny Moseley. Although Dobbs has scored well at big-mountain competitions—eighth at Kirkwood's 2006 World Freeskiing Tour finals—he's proudest of the Best Waiter of North Lake Tahoe and Truckee titles he held in 2006. Naturally, he recommends his employer for the best bargain dinner in town: "Head to Dragonfly Restaurant and Sushi Bar [], in Truckee, for the $8 Sapporo-and-Long Roll combo," he says.
