From an idea by Bob Everson, former Marketing Director at Alpine Meadows Ski Resort, and in his honor, North Lake Tahoe has held SnowFest every year since 1982. What is the North Lake Tahoe SnowFest? It is a 10-day outdoor festival of everything that’s ‘snow-reliant’. Here are a few of the events that will take place at this year’s Fest, which beings on February 27, 2015:
- The Naughty Dawg Pull
- Whacky Human Bowling
- Snow Sculpting
Tahoe has incredible and wonderful skiing weather in March, and this annual event promotes it, and allows locals to come out and enjoy themselves.
SnowFest offers activities for all ages. They take place on and off the mountain, at numerous resorts, and in our wonderful lakeside neighborhoods. Resorts include Squaw Valley USA, Alpine Meadows, Homewood, Diamond Peak, and Northstar-at-Tahoe. In addition to the three events listed above, there are many others. After the kick-off on February 27th, things move into high gear. On March 1st, starting at 10 a.m., join in the lively activities of Waterman’s Landing Fun Day! Get in on a free group paddle. Food and drinks can be purchased at the restaurant. At 1 p.m., there’s Granlibakken’s Gone “Bonkers” Kids Ski & Snowboard Race, taking place at Granlibakken Tahoe. This is the first annual such competition. Kids aged 5-12 can go all out over natural terrain that has gates, bumps, and obstacles. A fee of $25 is required for this event, but if you’re staying at Granlibakken, it’s reduced to $5!
So each and every day of SnowFest offers a variety of activities; whether races, parades, or even concerts. To find out more, please visit http://www.tahoesnowfestival.com.
