The Alpenglow Sports Winter Speaker Series is an eagerly anticipated winter tradition for North Tahoe’s adventure community. With over 3,000 in-person attendees and 33,000+ online annually, the 17-year-old event has become one of the premier North American forums for adventure storytelling. For the 2022-23 season, each show will be presented in-person AND online in a virtual capacity.
The Alpenglow Winter Speaker Series blends two goals: 1) to inspire and motivate mountain athletes to pursue their own outdoor dreams and 2) to educate about, and raise funds for, nonprofit organizations making a tangible difference in the North Lake Tahoe and Truckee community. The Winter Speaker Series is the largest free community speaker series in the country that hosts the biggest names in the outdoor industry. Past speakers include Alex Honnold, Lynn Hill, Jeremy Jones, Glen Plake, Hilaree Nelson, Adrian Ballinger and more.
This five-show series runs from November through February at Olympic Valley Lodge at Palisades Tahoe and is entirely FREE. Each speaker is paired with a local nonprofit that has been selected through a rigorous application process.
For those who cannot make the shows at Palisades Tahoe, we will continue to present each show in a virtual capacity via our YouTube channel. Giveaway and bar proceeds, in conjunction with anonymous donations, raise more than $75,000 per show for local North Lake Tahoe non-profit organizations. To date, the event has raised over $1,000,000 for local nonprofit organizations.
Hope to see you there!
