At Home with Matt Gibely
What is the first thing you think of when you wake up?
I have my morning routine. I need about 20 minutes sitting down on the couch with tea or coffee before I can do much in the morning. Before that, my thoughts are usually pretty nonexistant. Once I get some caffeine in me I am ready to roll.
Where is home?
Squaw Valley USA!
Coffee or Tea?
Loaded question. Tea drinker who recently converted. I feel like I am cheating on Tea.
Where is the best place to get that mornin cup?
Tahoe House. Hands down.
When was that last time you had on OR/PrAna/Evolv?
What were you doing?
Climbing in Owens River Gorge in Bishop California. Had on my deadpoint shorts.
When you walk into a room what theme song is playing in your head?
Return of the Mack by Mark Morrison.
Do you prefer the mountains, or the water?
Mountains, I feel at home in them. Water scares me. Like a lot.
Best eats in your town?
River Grille in Tahoe City probably. Great food right on the river in a great setting. Incredible happy hour as well.
When you have a friend in town where is the first place you send them?
Emerald Bay on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe. Takes my breath away everytime. It looks like a postcard. I love my town!
When you are at home where do you spend most of your time?
Climbing or skiing. (Don’t tell my boss) I also do a lot of work at coffee shops around town. I have a little circuit that I go on. Coffee Bar in Truckee is probably the best place to get some work done and get a good cup.
