TRUCKEE, Calif. — Backpacker and Skiing Magazine, the authority on outdoor adventure, is bringing its widely celebrated “Get Out More Winter Tour” to Truckee this week.

Tour ambassadors and Tahoe locals Robin McElroy and Sarah Scott will conclude their tour of the country at home. They have visited 50-plus venues across the country over a five-month period, inspiring tens of thousands of outdoor enthusiasts to get out and explore the great outdoors all winter long.

The Get Out More Winter team is offering advice via an in-depth, 75-minute seminar designed to both inspire and educate. The event will cover the unique challenges outdoor enthusiasts face while skiing, camping and backpacking, the specialized equipment designed specifically for winter outdoor adventures, and the current state of fashion in the outdoor industry.

Participants will have the chance to win outdoor gear and apparel worth hundreds of dollars. The free event takes place at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 26, at Tahoe Sports Hub, at 10095 W. River St. in Truckee.
