Nachtspektakl at Squaw Valley, Feb. 4

Tahoe City, California – On February 4th Squaw Valley, USA, Dynafit, and Alpenglow Sports will host California’s first ever Nacktspektakel ski touring event!

Nachtspektakel comes to Squaw Valley, Feb. 4th 2012. Tickets at Alpenglow Sports.

A Nachtspektakel (pr: 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!

Ski tourers are invited to enjoy an evening ascent to Squaw Valley’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 stoke the fires of winter.

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

Come appropriately dressed with complete uphill gear (skis, skins, boots, poles), warm clothes and most importantly – a headlamp. You might consider a spare layer of dry clothes for drinks/dinner.

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

Meet at the gondola for sign-in at 3:30pm. Event starts at 4:00pm. Questions please call Alpenglow 530.583.6917.

    Just returned from the first NachtSpektakl at Squaw Valley – organized and hosted by cousin JD at Alpenglow Sports and Dynafit. Mucho thanks to Jeff for putting it together, and muchas gratias to Squaw for allowing the first uphill skinning event at Squaw.

    It was a simple course, but even as simple as the route was, getting almost 50 people to move as a cohesive group is all but impossible. That didn’t prevent it being a fun event and I look forward to more of the same.
