The 2nd Annual Arne Backstrom Blastathon is shaping up to be even better than last year! Two days of fun are on tap; Day one features a group stand up paddle on Lake Tahoe hosted by Willard’s Sport Shop at the “Y” in Tahoe City. Registration begins at 8 am and the day’s activity will be capped off with a raffle, lunch, and beverages supplied by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
Day two is a group mountain bike ride on the Tahoe Rim Trail, starting at Tahoe Meadow and finishing on the Chimney Beach Downhill. Registration starts at 8 am at Village Ski Loft, in Incline Village. Specialized Bicycles will be here with their event vehicle supplying 2013 demo bikes and the ride will be followed by lunch and beers supplied by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. We will also be holding a raffle with prizes furnished by Blizzard Skis, Tecnica Ski Boots, Patagonia, Soul Poles, Five Ten, Oakley, Village Ski Loft and more!
