    Marc Berger and the RIDE Band

    “A well choreographed mix of deep country folk songs with touches of bluegrass, roots, Americana, a little spicy cajun, and even a little indie with an effects laced lead acoustic guitar. It's near impossible to sit through a set without feeling amusical kinship to something in every song, even if it's just the basic joy of watching a well seasoned band rip through every song as if it was the final number of their farewell tour.” -The Living Room, NYC

Sherb Talks

Sherb Talk: "Daring Greatly" with Hilaree Nelson

Join us for a very special Sherb Talk evening with Hilaree Nelson. Hilaree's talk, "Daring Greatly", will include a mix of photos and video and will include how she got started in the world of mountaineering, with a focus on the ski descent of Lhotse this last fall. Her talk will be dedicated to the discussion behind the trials and tribulations of failure, raising kids, passion as a compass.

Recently named the captain of The North Face Athlete Team, Hilaree is a seasoned adventurer with more than 40 expeditions to some of the most remote corners of the globe. Her passion and dedication to climbing and skiing has won her recognition as a 2018 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year. She has become a mentor for an upcoming generation of mountain athletes. As a member of Protect Our Winters Riders' Alliance, she shares her stories and life experiences as a voice for advocacy of our wild places.

She is the first woman to climb two 8000 meter peaks, Everest and its neighboring peak Lhotse(Loht-say) – in a single 24-hour period. Just this past September, Hilaree returned to Lhotse to complete the first-ever ski descent of the 4th highest peak in the world, aka the Dream Line.
Born and raised in the Northwest, Hilaree began skiing at age 3 in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State. Today, her favorite mountain town is Telluride, CO - a place where she raises her two boys and is fortunate to call home.

Hilaree's career highlights include:
Lhotse Ski Descent, Khumbu Valley Nepal Sept 2018
