TAHOE CITY, Calif. and#8212; Tahoe City was the place to be Saturday, Dec. 4 when Sawtooth Ridge Cafe hosted the Auburn Ski Club-Alpine Freestyle Fundraiser Dinner. More than 100 people showed up to support the new generation of Tahoeand#8217;s dedicated, hard core Freestyle athletes. The energy was high and so was the support as a great group of sponsors and supporters came out to welcome the athletes, coaches and parents of this high energy team.

The party began with live music featuring Rob Armenti with his acoustic-reggae-rock blend. Roy Tuscany from High Fives was electric as the Master of Ceremonies. A silent auction with donations ranging from vacations, ski equipment, sporting goods and personal services brought in much appreciated bids. The winners went home happy with their prizes but happier still they supported a great group of athletes dedicated to progressing the sport of Freestyle skiing. The evening kicked off ski season with talented team membersand#8217; videos playing on two screens. Sawtooth Ridge went all out for the Fundraiser.

The Alpine Freestyle Team, based out of Alpine Meadows and Boreal is coached by Drew Fisher and Tyler Homen, in their second year of major team leadership roles. Fisher and Homen are no strangers to elite coaching techniques. Fisher grew up skiing on the original Alpine Meadows Freestyle Ski Team and Homen began his ski career with the Auburn Ski Club race program and quickly progressed to the Alpine Meadows Freestyle Ski Team.

The Alpine Freestyle Teamand#8217;s roots lie within a dedicated group of athletes with a passion for skiing. The coaches and athletes of Alpine Freestyle love to have a good time while working hard to progress. Look for these youths in future films and competitions. North Lake Tahoe/Truckee is proud of its ski heritage. Thanks to the support of a great community these athletes have a chance to carve a new path in ski history. Visit for information.
