Alpenglow Sports announces the second summer edition of the Alpenglow Mountain Festival. The ten-day festival is a celebration of human-powered events, demos, presentations, film and more. Exploring some of the best activities Lake Tahoe has to offer, participants can hike, trail run, and enjoy natural history excursions and lakeshore yoga.
Driven by fun, community, health, education and the embodiment of the mountain lifestyle, the festival
has been designed to inspire participants to enjoy and explore North Lake Tahoe’s playground with
friends and family. “We’re excited to once again provide our Lake Tahoe community and visitors with ten
days of really fun events,” said Brendan Madigan, owner of the 34-year-old Tahoe City mountain shop.
“It’s great for the community, encourages outdoor enjoyment and promotes healthy lifestyles.”
Alpenglow Mountain Festival is geared toward beginner and intermediate summer recreation enthusiasts, offering a range of activities for all interests and ability levels. The majority of events are free and space is limited. Participants are encouraged to register online in advance to assure spots and for the chance to
