Description:

A major highlight event of the winter Alpenglow Mountain Festival is NACHTSPEKTAKEL, a European-inspired uphill ski touring event. This festive evening is made possible through the generous support of Dynafit.

We’ve once again partnered with Homewood Mountain Resort for the 2019 Nachtspektakel. You will you enjoy spectacular views of Lake Tahoe under a star-filled sky, enjoy you a tasty catered meal and make new friends around the bonfire. While the tour is open to skiers of all ability levels you will be required to bring all personal avalanche safety (beacon, shovel, probe) equipment. Please come prepared for all conditions …. and while the bonfire and/or yurt will keep you warm, please make sure to bring lots of warm clothing. We encourage you to bring any festive items of your choice to make the night more enjoyable.

The event costs $75 and includes dinner and two drink tickets. Please, no snowshoes or metal-edge touring gear. While we love dogs, please leave your furry companions at home for Nachtspektakel.

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO SKI OUT IN THE DARK UNDER YOUR OWN POWER. PLEASE DON’T FORGET YOUR HEAD LAMP.”

*PLEASE NOTE! In the spirit of inclusivity we are limiting participants to four tours. This does not include workshops, Backcountry Basics, etc. Registration for most events requires a deposit, which varies from $25-$100, that is refunded upon participation. Cancellations are not allowed after February 1st and all calendar adjustments prior to February 1st are subject to a $10 adjustment fee. Any excess garnered from the cancellation policy will be donated to Protect Our Winters and the Tahoe Backcountry Alliance.

**Please also note that you will be sent a complete equipment list for each individual event by the middle of January. Additionally, if you have registered for any backcountry tour you will be contacted 72 hours prior to the tour with the exact location. This is irrelevant if your chosen tour stipulates a location, but for others we want to assess the snow and avalanche conditions for others closer to the event. The goal is to show you the best time possible which requires a decision closer to each tour.
