A Host of Events at Alpine Meadows

0 Comments 10 January 2010

This weekend Alpine Meadows hosted a plethora of events catering to every skier, rider and freeheeler out on the hill.  At the nine O’clock bell, tents were raised with logos from Black Diamond, K2, Crispi and Garmont for Alpenglow’s 3rd Annual Telemark and Alpine Touring Demo Day.  The ski’s were phat and the freeheeler’s excited! Thanks to everyone from Alpenglow for a fantastic event!

Not every event is on the hill… a snow safety seminar for Alpine Club members and season pass holders was held above the Alpine Bar.  The presentation was given by Evan and Gene, two of Alpine’s Professional Ski Patrolmen and Avalanche Forecasters.  With over 40 years experience between the two, a power point slide show gave skiers/riders an up close look at the surface we enjoy sliding on.

And for the Kid’s, Alpine held a scavenger hunt powered by, Flaik, the ultimate real time tracking solution. The course takes children to various areas of the resort, encouraging them to have fun exploring the mountain while looking for hidden objects. The scavenger hunt uses Flaik to track exactly where participants are, have been, their vertical feet, speed, runs completed, and objects found throughout the event.  To find our more about Flaik at Alpine Meadows, check out our Kid’s Ski and Snowboard Programs.

Don’t even think we forgot about the apres part of skiing! In celebration of what we all love…SNOW!  The party was held In the Last Chair Bar, while SambaDa rocked the house with their funk reggae beats.  The crowd was shakin’ as Alpine’s legendary Diva’s, Team RAD, hosted the event.

While the adults were playing in the Last Chair, the first Junior Alpine Club party took place in the Mezzanine.  Junior Alpine Club is for 18 and under. The Mezzanine had ping pong, pool, soft-tip darts, and a raffle giving away cool gear! What a great place to bring your kids while you relax at the Last Chair.
