We here at Alpenglow and Tahoe XC are excited for Summer! So much so that we are going to “guarantee” that it will snow soon by hosting a Running Race instead of the Alpenglow 20km.

So, at this time, the ski race is ‘off’ and Alpenglow and TXC will be hosting the Alpenglow 2km, 5km, and 10km running/hiking/walking Event on Sunday, 26 January. Please note: Phun is mandatory and “Make it Snow” costumes are encouraged. BBQ and Awards to follow at TXC as usual.

Race start at 10am with 2km and 5km laps.

Please plan to attend and bring all your friends. If we cannot ski we may as well embrace the conditions!

*Please note, if it does happen to snow enough to host the ski race at the last minute we will do so on a course that best matches the conditions and terrain available.

Feb 1 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am
  • Coaches: Glenn Jobe
  • Dates: Saturday, February 1, 2014 9:00am – 11:00am
  • Location: Tahoe XC
  • Cost: $50 Far West members; $70 non members

Back by popular demand is our classic ski clinic. This year it will be led by renowned Far West coach and Olympian Glenn Jobe. Glenn was an Olympic Biathlete in the 1980 Olympic Games, was the 1981 National Biathlon 20 km champion, as well as a former Far West Nordic head coach.  He was the founder of both the Kirkwood and Tahoe Donner Nordic centers and has been coaching Far West Junior skiers since 1977.

We’re scheduling this clinic before the Tahoe Rim Tour to give Far West members time to improve their classic techniques and get “on-course” instruction from some of Tahoe’s best classic skiers. This clinic is geared to intermediate and advanced classic skiers looking to improve their skills and race performance. This clinic will include 2 hours of “on snow” time where coaches will review various aspects of how you classic ski, help you correct bad habits, and identify opportunities for improving your skiing. After two hours of on-snow instruction, we will spend an hour reviewing video -where you will learn from analysis of your technique and in comparison to the technique of others.

Note: You’ll need a Tahoe XC trail pass for the day. Far West members can present their membership card to receive a full day pass at the half day rate.
