Tahoe Women’s backcountry event: Beacon searches at Alpenglow Sports

Special to the Sun

TAHOE CITY, Calif. and#8212; Tahoe Backcountry Women is a recently organized group of regional women who love to backcountry ski. The next gathering will be on Wednesday, March 14, 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Alpenglow Sports in Tahoe City.

This event will be centered on informal avalanche beacon practice. Women of all ages and abilities are welcome and encouraged to join in this fun, educational evening. Start with a slice of pizza and basic review before heading outside to do practice searches.

Bring your beacon, a headlamp and warm clothes. If you don’t have a beacon, they will be able to share or pair up.

Avalanche safety equipment will be discounted in the shop. Call Alpenglow Sports at 530-583-6917 or email whitney@alpenglowsports.com.
