The Lake Tahoe Backcountry Demo Event is back for it’s fourteenth year in Lake Tahoe. Join us at Alpine Meadows for the largest, and most well-known backcountry demo event in North America.

Backcountry Magazine’s Backcounty Basecamp Tour will be at the two-day event as they travel throughout the country spreading safety and stoke. Join the editors of Backcountry Magazine, alongside guides, forecasters, AIARE instructors and gear experts for a resort-based showcase of all things backcountry—including demos, avalanche education, guided tours and a huge raffle.

The event is free, but participants must possess a valid lift ticket or season pass purchased from Alpine Meadows or Squaw Valley USA, along with a driver’s license and credit card for deposit to demo equipment.
