Getting ready for Snowfest!   Leave a comment

P1010278The first week of March in the Tahoe-Truckee area means Snowfest! Ten days of fun events including ski races, eating contests and of course a few home town parades, make Snowfest a fun time to experience Tahoe.

Here are a few event favorites to look for:

March 1st-The Grand Opening ceremony at Squaw Valley includes the coronation of the Snowfest Queen, a Laser light show, fireworks and torch light skier parade down the slopes of Squaw. Speaking of the Snowfest Queen competition, the contest is based on an interview, resume, and who can sell the most Snowfest Raffle Tickets. The proceeds from raffle ticket sales are split between the Snowfest organization and a worthy non-profit that the girls are supporting. The contest winner gets a scholarship, so please buy tickets to help a hard working girl and our local community.

March 2nd and 9th-The Parades. The first, is in Tahoe City on March 2nd and then the following weekend on March 9th Kings Beach puts on their show. Look for kids marching, fire trucks wailing, Snowfest Queen and court waving, Old Man winter, and plenty of fun home town kitschy touches.

March 2nd-Garwoods Polar Bear Swim. After the Tahoe City parade, a few hearty folks swim all the way to the end of the Garwoods pier in water that can only be described as really, really cold. Hopefully the chill is lessened by the crowds of people cheering them on, or the alcohol they consumed before entering the water.

New this year, Sugar Bowl is hosting the Jack London Commemorative Sierra Sled Dog Derby on March 3rd and 4th. The event attempts to capture the classic sled dog races of old.

At Snowfest there are lots of fun events happening every day. Check out the choices at
