Alpenglow Sports Backcountry Demo Event and BC Magazine Basecamp Tour
The Annual Lake Tahoe Backcountry Demo Event is North America’s largest venue for all things alpine touring, telemark and splitboard!
A community-oriente leader in the backcountry industry for 30-plus years, Alpenglow Sports has worked hard to foster the largest, and most well-known backcountry demo event in North America.
The event is held annually at Alpine Meadows Ski Resort, a destination known for popular hikes, great out-of-bounds terrain, and easy to access side-country. The event provides a forum to perpetuate the enthusiasm for all aspects of in-area and backcountry skiing.
Backcountry Magazine's Backcounty Basecamp Tour will be at the two-day event as well. As they travel throughout the country spreading safety and stoke, join the editors of Backcountry Magazine, alongside guides, forecasters, AIARE instructors and gear experts for a resort-based showcase of all things backcountry—including demos, avalanche education, guided tours and a huge raffle.
The event is free, but participants must possess a valid lift ticket or season pass purchased from Alpine Meadows or Squaw Valley USA, along with a driver’s license and credit card for deposit.
