You don’t need to pre-register. Just show up at 8am at any of the 22 check-in stations, grab your volunteer tee, and you’ll get your assignment for the area of Truckee to clean up! Children are welcome as well, as long as they are accompanied by an adult.

Kentucky Derby Day and Cinco de Mayo: Lake Tahoe Weekend Fun

Kentucky Derby Hat

Although some are celebrating Cinco de Mayo on Saturday evening (perhaps to avoid that margarita hangover on Monday morning) there’s always the historic Kentucky Derby Day on Saturday, May 4 that’s cause for celebration! You technically don’t have to choose between bourbon and tequila: mint julep or margarita? In fact, we have just the spot for you to celebrate both on this very warm, spring weekend in May: River Ranch Lodge in Tahoe City/Alpine Meadows!

Throw on your Derby hat and heels for Saturday’s festivities and trade them in for a sombrero on Sunday.

Kentucky Derby Day at River Ranch Lodge, May 4, 11:30am-4:00pm

Wear your best Derby Hat and win a prize! Bar opens at 11:30 a.m. for pre-race coverage. River Ranch Lodge will serve traditional Derby fare including Kentucky Hot Browns and Mint Juleps: the official drink of the race!

Cinco de Mayo Celebration at River Ranch Lodge, May 5, 4:30pm-8:30pm

It’s tequila time! Come celebrate a day of Mexican heritage and pride with Mexican beer and margarita specials. Complimentary mini-appetizers are served as well!

McConkey Movie: Premier at Tribeca Film Festival


The documentary trailer for McConkey opens with early video of Shane McConkey, “there he is: the man, the myth, not a legend yet–he’s too young.” Today, Shane McConkey has certainly obtained legendary status at Squaw Valley and within the international ski community as a whole. McConkey, a film by MSP Films and Red Bull Media House that examines Shane’s legacy as a pro-athlete, does not officially release until October 2013. However, it recently premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York.

Stay tuned for more details on the kick-off film tour at Squaw Valley this fall.
