The Lake Tahoe Outdoor Adventure Group Is On!

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

Are you looking for people to do fun things with outdoors? Maybe you have a friend that is new to the area and they want someone to hike with, or your significant other desperately needs to find their own set of biking friends. Well, we have a meetup group! It’s a place to meet others in the area who share the same passion for outdoor activities, and it’s free to join. Once you’ve signed up you can post your plans (or ideas for future plans) to OUR MEETUP PAGE ON MEETUP.COM, and start discussing arrangements for cool activities like day hikes, trail runs, bike rides, yoga on the beach, and anything else you can (or can’t) think of. Collaborate with others to come up with a creative outing, or invite someone to tag along on a trip you’re already planning. That’s the beauty of being part of a group!

With a fun-filled winter behind us, we’re excited to see many more meet-ups as the warmer months roll in. You’ll start to hear about events like Trail Run Demo Days where companies like Montrail or Salomon bring boxes of new shoes for you to try out on a local trail, or Ultimate Frisbee on the beach or Disc Golf Tournaments at a local course. We also have a couple Ladies Nights each year, where local backcountry babes and mountain mamas snack, drink, socialize and score rare discounts on women’s products. Help us put more cool ideas on the board so we can get together with our local community more often!

Tahoe Mountain Sports and Tahoe Institute for Natural Science are excited to sponsor a great day on the snow at Tahoe Meadows. Snowshoe rentals will be discounted to $10 for anyone participating in the hike, and veteran naturalist Will Richardson (Ph.D) will be leading the hike/discussions.

Participants should meet at Tahoe Mountain Sports at 10:30 a.m. If you need rental snowshoes, please arrive at 10:00 a.m. to get pick up your snowshoes and poles. The guided hike is free, but all participants are asked to register. Anyone coming from Incline Village or Reno can meet at the Meadows. Plan for the hike to last around two hours. We won’t hike terribly far; we’ll climb up Chickadee Ridge a ways and see how far we get.

Pigmy Owl TahoeDoctor Will Richardson will lead the hike and discuss natural history issues, namely how various animals and plants cope with the short days, heavy snows and freezing temperatures associated with winter in Tahoe. Will is the Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director of the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science (TINS), a member-supported nonprofit organization seeking to advance the natural history, conservation, and ecosystem knowledge of the Tahoe region.

To register, visit and RSVP for the Guided Snowshoe Hike at Tahoe Meadows; or send an email to with “Snowshoe Hike” in the Subject line

Weather day will be Sunday, March 3, in case we get hit too hard with snow Saturday.
