G4 Checks Into The Block

G4 will give viewers a look at what goes inside and outside of a snowboarders-catered hotel in Lake Tahoe.

Scheduled to premiere in January, original reality series The Block will track the best of the snowboarding lifestyle at the first hotel chain designed for boarders.

The Block hotel chain was founded by snowboarding legend Marc Frank Montoya and Las Vegas hotelier Liko Smith.

Each episode will not only cover hard-core riding, but the adventures of Montoya as he travels the globe in rock-star style while Smith tries to maintain the balance between art and commerce. The show also shows the hotel staffers at work and play.
