With the winter recreation season underway, the Tahoe Fund is asking community members to rise to a new challenge: help unlock $10,000 to support Nevada Nordic’s grooming efforts.
“If you love cross-country skiing or snowshoeing, this challenge is for you,” said Amy Berry, CEO of the Tahoe Fund. “If 100 community members donate to the $10K Challenge, the Tahoe Fund will give $10,000 to support Nevada Nordic’s nightly grooming of 19 km of free trails.”
Located off the Mt. Rose Highway four miles west of Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe and 6 miles east of Incline Village, Nevada Nordic provides the closest groomed trails to the Reno and Carson City areas. Thanks to its 8,100’ elevation, Nevada Nordic’s trail grooming can often continue longer than any other cross-country area in the region.
“Our mission is grounded in making sure our trails are available at no cost, and it’s the community support that makes this possible,” said Meghan Pry, Nevada Nordic board member. “With your help, we can maintain that free access to cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and fat biking for all those who love to get outside in the winter.”
Nevada Nordic maintains their trail system year-round, including removal of downed limbs, trail debris, and dog waste. A team of dedicated ambassadors help visitors get the most out of the trail system, and school groups, local school ski teams and students from the Boys & Girls Club are regularly welcomed to Nevada Nordic’s freshly groomed trails.
The first 100 people to donate $25 or more by March 15 will unlock the Tahoe Fund match. Give today at www.tahoefund.org/10kchallenge.
