Yup, another Nachtspektakel

Another Nachtspektakel comes to Tahoe.

What’s with all these Nachtspektakels? I can’t speak for everyone else but having been to the first two in the Tahoe area I can testify they have the same vibe as a tele-fest with a sense of accomplishment and hunger that follows a rando race, without the longevity or commitment of either. You can do it as date, or simply as a good excuse to knock a few back with old and new friends.

If you missed the first two the good news is there’s another Nachtspektakel coming to Lake Tahoe, Friday, March 1st . This time around Tahoe Mountain Sports is organizing the event, hosted at Diamond Peak and sponsored with Dyanfit and The North Face.

Tickets are $40 in advance, $50 the day of the event, and include lift accessed skiing from 2pm-4pm along with an uphill pass and a 3-course meal in the Snowflake Lodge, overlooking Lake Tahoe, at Diamond Peak in Incline Village, NV. It will be an excellent venue to watch the sun set while drenching the mountains surrounding big blue in alpenglow.

The full moon is only four days prior to the event, but unexpected snow and cloud cover may limit night-vision so bring a headlamp and dress warm. Comfortable shoes or sandals are recommended for dinner indoors.

Price: $40 per person pre-registered, $50 day of the event. Includes lift-accessed skiing from 2:00-4:00 pm, an uphill ticket and a 3-course lodge style meal with beverage (One beer, wine or well drink – the bar will be open if you care for more). Free backcountry gear rentals will be available at Tahoe Mountain Sports. They must be reserved ahead of time and picked up by 6:00 p.m. on February 28.

Register online at Tahoe Mountain Sports, or by calling 530-546-7001

Tahoe Mountain Sport’s Nachtspektakel is sponsored by Diamond Peak Ski Resort, The North Face, Dynafit and Brimm’s Catering.

Any event changes made due to winter weather will be announced by February 28.
