 SUMMERTIME TRAINING IN PARADISE

Truckee and Tahoe is teeming with Nordic and College-Age Athletes this summer, as our training programs are going full-bore throughout the area. Sugar Bowl Academy, Auburn Ski Club, Tahoe Cross Country, and our fast-growing Summer College Training Program are all over the mountains — running, rollerskiing, biking, hiking, and even skiing!

Show above are some images from the recent Basin Peak Sprint Relays. Check out some of the photos from the recent Drifter Time Trial HERE.
