If you love skiing, adventure, and the chance to win free prizes, then you won’t want to miss the February 20th Alpenglow Winter Speaker Series featuring Hadley Hammer. Doors will open at 6 o’clock with a raffle, pizza, and drinks before the speaker of the night.
What is the Alpenglow Winter Speaker Series?
The Alpenglow Winter Speaker Series is an eagerly anticipated winter tradition for North Tahoe’s adventure community. With over 4,000 attendees annually, the 14-year-old Alpenglow Winter Speaker Series (WSS) has become the premier North American forum for adventure storytelling. Five times per winter, a premier outdoor athlete presents an inspirational tale of adventure, creating a forum for motivation and inspiration. The cost of admission is always free!
Where Does the Alpenglow Winter Speaker Series Take Place?
All shows take place at the Olympic Village Lodge at Squaw Valley at 6:00pm on the night specified.
Who is Hadley Hammer?
Professional skier, Hadley Hammer, details her unlikely entry into the pro-skier world at the age of 25, when she was catapulted to the top of the Freeride World Tour. However, rather than being an overnight success story, Hammer’s talk will look at how the limitations we place on ourselves can hold us back the most, and how overcoming those obstacles can lead to amazing results. Hadley grew up in the Tetons, skiing was never her sole focus. The multi-faceted Jackson Hole native spent her childhood figure skating, rock climbing, ski racing and Nordic skiing, but those extracurricular activities were always anchored with plenty of days freeskiing in Jackson Hole with her two brothers.
