Inspiration, Education & Shopping at Tahoe Mountain Sports
Come join your fellow Backcountry Babes and Mountain Mommas for a fun night at your local gear hub and get psyched for winter along with the rest of us! Store-wide savings and special deals offer the perfect chance to do some holiday shopping, or to simply spoil yourself!
There are great prizes to be won, including two pairs of UGG boots (of winner’s choice) valued at $250+! We’re also giving out free gifts with all purchases, like yoga mats or Wigwam socks.
With winter just around the corner, we’ve got everything you need to stay warm outside! If you’re into hiking, yoga, Crossfit, climbing, skiing or snowboarding, snowshoeing or Nordic skiing, we’ve got the gear to get you out there! Come meet like minded women while you enjoy wine, light refreshments and 100% natural and organic Ener-Treats made locally by Kaili Sanchez, Owner of Kaili’s Creative Kitchen.
To add even more fuel to your fire, 13-year Truckee resident Susie Sutphin will be in the house, providing inspirational stories from her years in the field. Suzie’s varied careers have brought her from “Couloir” magazine to Patagonia Clothing and later the Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival where she ran the national tour. The films inspired her to explore building a smarter and more equitable food system, and she has since collected her discoveries about sustainable and regional food systems on her blog, www.foodchronicles.net. When not enjoying a good meal with friends, you’ll find Susie out exploring the Sierra Nevada backcountry either on snow, dirt or rock! Her passion for the outdoors has taken her on two wheels and two sticks to many interesting destinations around the world. Her current big adventure is a non-profit called the Tahoe Food Hub, which will source regional food from area producers within 150-miles and make more ecological eats available to the North Lake Tahoe community. Susie is happy to come share her photos, stories, advice and regrets, in an attempt to entice us all to be healthier, more active and more involved.
