We’re packing up the Tahoe Mountain Sports truck with lots of goodies for the National Winter Trails Day celebration at Van Sickle Bi-State Park on Tahoe’s South Shore (parking behind Harrah’s). No snow required for a good time this weekend! From 10am to 2pm, Tahoe Rim Trail guides and volunteers and other local wilderness educators are leading guided hikes (snowshoe and/or just hiking shoe, depending on if snow falls this week) and product demos all day. Plus there’s a warming party at nearby Explore Tahoe, the urban trailhead near Heavenly and the casinos, starting at noon with food by Stateline Brewery and Baja Fresh. Snowshoes will be available if you don’t have them, as well as some free hot drinks and snacks.
Stop by our tent to see the latest and greatest MSR snowshoes, water filters, camping stoves, Nemo tents and Deuter packs on display and for demo. We will also have trail maps, sunscreen and other goodies for sale and are hosting a raffle to give away socks, hats and other essentials from our shop.
We had so much fun on National Winter Trails Day last year, so don’t miss out this time around!
I’m Tahoe Mountain Sports’ web editor and a 6-year Tahoe resident. Yep, I live the life, with a lake view from my desk, lunch breaks on the beach with my dog, and morning powder runs when the snow’s good. I ski, snowboard, skate ski, and cross-country ski in winter, and hike, mountain bike, backpack, and lay around on Tahoe’s beaches in summer.
