GREAT EVENT at Alpine Meadows Feb. 19-21

This weekend one of Granlibakken’s semi-neighbors plays host to one of the best ski events to hit Tahoe: the Alpine Meadows Telemark & Freeride Festival.

The Buttress at Alpine Meadows - Venue for Day 2 of the telemark steeps contest

This event is great because it includes a classic steeps contest with a great viewing area (you need to be on the mountain to see it, i.e. have a lift ticket, etc.!). The it has an awareness raising / backcountry skiing component where people race UP the entire mountain using specialized gear then ski down to a simulated avalanche zone to find buried ‘people.’ It concludes with a no-holds-barred winner-take-all downhill race and a big bash. For more info go to Alpine Meadows’ website.
