Outdoor Leadership and Guide Training at Tahoe: May 18-20

Competence and confidence in the outdoors are imperative in our mountain environment, and for anyone who recreates outside. Whether you’re a guide or an outdoor enthusiast, this is the guide training event for you!

The Tahoe Rim Trail Association’s 4th annual Outdoor Leadership and Guide Training event is May 18-20 at Granlibakken Lodge & Conference Center in Tahoe City.

You’ll leave with skills to increase your confidence and competence in the outdoors. Industry professionals along with experienced Tahoe Rim Trail guides will lead workshops in Outdoor Leadership, Risk Management, Trip Planning, Field Skills, Leave No Trace and much more! The weekend offers many opportunities to network with professional and volunteer guides, as well as participants who share in common pursuits and passions.

Tahoe Mountain Sports is one of the event sponsors, and our owner Dave Polivy will be speaking on a panel about the latest and greatest group gear. Don’t miss this!

The 3-day workshop costs $250, which includes dormitory lodging, tuition and materials, day and evening training sessions, all meals, parking, conference fees and taxes, and wireless access. Plus, there are many price packages available, including affordable prices for Tahoe locals.

I'm Tahoe Mountain Sports' web editor and a 6-year Tahoe resident. Yep, I live the life, with a lake view from my desk, lunch breaks on the beach with my dog, and morning powder runs when the snow's good. I ski, snowboard, skate ski, and cross-country ski in winter, and hike, mountain bike, backpack, and lay around on Tahoe's beaches in summer.
