If you keep your eyes open, you will find great things to do at night at Lake Tahoe. One of the best is when you get the opportunity to take advantage of the great athletes of the world that come to Tahoe to tell their stories through the Alpenglow Sports Winter Film Series. The latest is Emily Harrington, climber extraordinaire, who will present, “The Long Way” on February 12th at 7 pm at the Olympic Village Lodge. It will document a National Geographic expedition of her adventure, suffering and ultimate reward found in the jungles and peaks of Myanmar.

Harrington has climbed all over the world, and has summited Mt. Everest. This past fall she was one of five members of The North Face/National Geographic Team which traveled to Myanmar to seek the summit of Mt. Hkakabo Razi, the highest peak in this remote and mysterious country. Myanmar has a brutal history of political upheaval, civil war and human rights violations. Even before climbing to the peak, the group had a 250 mile hike on foot through the dense, remote jungle to reach the Tibetan border and begin the ascent. They encountered challenging obstacles, and a great deal of physical suffering, yet emerged considering it a life altering experience.

“We’ve had a glimpse into Emily’s show and her tale is absolutely amazing,” says Brendan Madigan, owner of Alpenglow Sports. “She’s continually pushing the ceiling of possibility not only in women’s climbing, but in the sport as a whole. I don’t know of another athlete who excels at all disciplines and has the ability to weave their adventures into such a compelling tale. Her story is not to be missed.”

This is the 4th installment of this year’s Alpenglow Winter Film Series, now in it’s 9th year. All shows are free, and there is a raffle available with the proceeds going to various local non-profit organizations. This month’s beneficiary is the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science. The final installment of this year’s series is in March. For additional information, please contact Brendan Madigan at Alpenglow Sports 530-583-6917 or brendan@alpenglowsports.com.
