The Lake Tahoe Nordic Festival is an event that will cater to one of the fastest growing cross-country regions in the United States.

Alpenglow Film Series @ Olympic Village Lodge
Mar 14 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Donny Roth has spent nine years searching remote corners of Chile looking for the perfect southern hemisphere backcountry skiing location. 2012 brought below average snowfall thus creating a last-second change of plans as two friends come down from the U.S. Pulling together some unusual resources, three men head into the cordillera, where very few people have traveled in the winter. For a week, the team explores unique terrain, is blown away by incredible sunsets and condors flying overhead, and makes first descents everyday. As amazing as the trip was, the story has just begun. Is this the future of backcountry skiing in South America?

Doors open at 7pm for the Alpenglow Film Series.

Tonight’s event will benefit the Far West Nordic Farm Team

The show is free. There will be over 4k of raffle prizes to giveaway. 100% of proceeds benefit the team.
