4th Annual Luggi Foeger Uphill/Downhill Festival & SkiMo Race - 3/25-3/26

The Lake Tahoe Basin’s premier SkiMo competition and an incredibly family-friendly event. Competitors race to the top of the mountain using whatever human-powered method you prefer – skins, snowshoes, running shoes, etc. – then ski, snowboard, snowshoe, or run back down to the finish line. For those of a less competitive nature, a recreational course to mid-mountain is available. The event will also include fun activities in the base area including ski boot races, live music, an awards ceremony, and more! Then, the fun continues with a winter-wildlife snowshoe hike Sunday morning.
