Luggi Foeger Uphill/Downhill Festival 

The Luggi Foeger Uphill/Downhill Festival & SkiMo Race is Lake Tahoe Basin’s premier SkiMo competition and an incredibly family-friendly event. Competitors race to the top of the mountain using whatever human-powered method you prefer – skins, snowshoes, running shoes, etc. – then ski, snowboard, snowshoe, or run back down to the finish line. For those of a less competitive nature, a recreational course to mid-mountain is available. The event will also include fun activities in the base area including ski boot races, live music, an awards ceremony, and more. Then, the fun continues with a winter-wildlife snowshoe hike Sunday morning.

The event will be on Saturday, March 23 starting at 8 a.m. and Sunday, March 24 starting at 7:30 a.m at Diamond Peak Ski Resort. Register at

Paradise Paradox Film Screening 

The film, “The Paradise Paradox,” takes a long overdue look at the mental health crisis that’s been sweeping our mountain towns. The film is told through the experiences of not only the local heroes who are confronting these challenges but also renowned figures like Olympic gold medalist Mikaela Shiffrin. This film aims to raise awareness about mental health and substance use challenges in mountain communities, break down the stigma surrounding seeking help with mental health struggles, and to raise funds for local foundations supporting mental health.
Paradise Paradox film screening will be on Wednesday, March 27 at 8 p.m. and Thursday, March 28 at 5 p.m at the Tahoe Art Haus.
