The sixth annual Alpenglow Mountain Festival, presented by Outdoor Research and DPS Skis, returns from Feb. 16 to 24, 2019. Registration opens at 10 a.m. on Dec. 17. The nine-day festival in North Lake Tahoe is a celebration of human-powered mountain sports, events, clinics, equipment demonstrations, critically acclaimed film and more. The event showcases more than 80 individual events and is almost entirely free.
Geared toward beginner and intermediate winter-recreation enthusiasts, the festival showcases some of the best activities Lake Tahoe has to offer: back-country skiing and splitboarding, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
Other highlights include:
- Kick-off party/screening of Telluride’s Mountainfilm
- The “Nachtspektakel” back-country social with bonfire and three-course catered meal
- Natural history snowshoe and winter astronomy tours with Tahoe Institute for Natural Science
- Nightly social events and presentations at Alpenglow Sports
The majority of events are free, so space is limited and participants are encouraged to register online to secure spots. Registration for most events requires a deposit that is refunded on participation. Cancellations are not allowed after Feb. 10. | alpenglowsports.com
