Tahoe’s Alpenglow Mountain Festival
We are in the midst of one of the most comprehensive and fun winter festivals that is hosted in Tahoe; the Alpenglow Mountain Festival. The festival is focused on exploring some of the best activities that the Tahoe area has to offer including Backcountry ski touring and snowshoeing along with films, presentations, equipment demos, and yoga.
The festival started on February 20th and runs through the 28th. The lineup of events to participate in is amazing, and is an excellent way to get into or learn about activities that are “off the beaten path”.

The festivities will start at 2:00 pm with music on the Northstar Village stage. At 3:30 there will be free S’mores in The Village before the “S’mores Walk.” A handful of Village businesses are stops on the S’mores walk; Mikuni will be providing S’mores Bark, AGL will have a S’mores cookie bar, the Beach Area will have a S’mores Pop, Starbucks will be showcasing a S’mores Crispy Treat, and Butterbox tops it off with S’mores Shooters.
Ripperoo will be hosting a S’mores roast at the Overlook Bar starting at 4:30.
At 5:30 the DJ will begin performing on the Village Stage, this may be a good opportunity to burn off some S’mores calories with some dancing.
Also on Saturday, join the guided Twilight Snowshoe Tour from 5:00 – 7:30 pm. Meet at the Cross Country Ski, Telemark and Showshoe Center located mid-mountain on Northstar Resort to enjoy an adventure through the forest with hot chocolate and live acoustic music. Reserve your spot here.
