European-inspired Nachtspektakel combines skinning, drinking and friends

TAHOE CITY and#8212; What the heck is a Nacktspektakel? A heck of a lot of fun, a Nachtspektakel (say-knocked-shpeck-tockle) is a traditional European-style ski event that bonds people through the sport of ski touring. A cultural norm in Europe, night spectaculars are new ways to combine skiing, beer and food that are sure to catch on in the States. There is no better way to spend a Saturday night than skinning, drinking, and meeting like-minded new friends

Squaw Valley, USA, Dynafit, and Alpenglow Sports will host Californiaand#8217;s first ever Nacktspektakel ski touring event Feb. 4.

Ski tourers are invited to relish an ascent to Squaw Valleyand#8217;s world-renown High Camp, followed by food and drink. Not only is this a rare chance to tour uphill at Squaw, but a fantastic way to meet new friends and rekindle the fire of the winter.

Tickets are $40 per person, cash only, and can be picked up at Alpenglow Sports, 415 North Lake Blvd. in Tahoe City.

Come appropriately dressed with complete uphill gear, skis, skins, boots, poles and most importantly a headlamp. Bring warm clothes, and perhaps a change of clothes for drinks/dinner.

Beacons shovels probes not required but recommended. Alpenglow Sports will offer free rentals for the evening. Rentals must be picked up the afternoon before the event.
