The Tahoe City Downtown Association (TCDA) will present the 4th Annual “Beach to Peaks Winter Preview” Aug. 17 during the Concerts at Commons Beach. Headlining this Sunday’s concert are the popular Dead Winter Carpenters. Concert goers will be able to get a sneak peek at the upcoming snow sports season as Tahoe’s top ski resorts pitch their tents at the world’s only winter expo show held on a beach.

“Beach to Peaks showcases several great elements of Lake Tahoe,” said organizer Bill Jensen. “You have some of America’s greatest snow sports resorts gathered together along with a free concert by one of the West’s top bands and all on the shore of the world’s most beautiful lake. Plus, there’s a free raffle for lift tickets.”

Guests are encouraged to play “Passport to the Peaks,” a free raffle game for prizes and lift tickets to Tahoe’s great alpine and Nordic resorts.

The grand prize package valued at over $600 includes a ticket from these participating resorts: Northstar California, Kirkwood Mountain Resort, Heavenly Mountain Resort, Sierra Tahoe, Squaw Valley Ski Resort, Alpine Meadows, Sugar Bowl Ski Resort, Royal Gorge XC and Tahoe City XC

According to their website, The Dead Winter Carpenters are “Foot-stomping original tunes blended with the band’s onstage presence highlighted by the vocal melodies and five part harmonies, ferocious fluidity of the fiddle, deep pounding thump and thud of the upright bass, country ramblings of the telecaster and acoustic guitars, and the driving drums all meld together to create an experience that is sure to leave you wanting more.”

These free concerts are made possible by community and guest donations. Take your picnic basket, blanket and low chairs. “Beach to Peaks” starts at 3 p.m. and the concert runs 4-7 p.m.
