UPDATE: Due to the evolving situation with COVID-19, the Luggi Foeger Uphill/Downhill Festival has been cancelled
The 3rd annual Luggi Foeger Uphill/Downhill Festival and SkiMo Race takes place on Saturday, March 28, 2020 at Diamond Peak Ski Resort in North Lake Tahoe. Competitors race to the top of the mountain using whatever human-powered method preferred - skins, snowshoes, running shoes, etc. - then ski, snowboard, snowshoe, or run back down to the finish line. For kids, families, and those of a less competitive nature, a recreational course will be available. Winners are awarded for both categories. The weekend will also include fun activities in the base area including ski boot races, live music, fun relays, and more! Costumes are strongly encouraged.
Tahoe Mountain Sports will be there with free demos of Fisher, Dynafit, Black Diamond, and Weston skis and splitboards. There will also be a limited selection of Black Crows and Icelantic to demo.
