Ladies Night at Tahoe Mountain Sports With Michelle Parker

TMS_LadiesNight2014_Blog2

With winter on the horizon, it doesn’t matter if you’re a lady or gent–you’re thinking about, dreaming up, and hoping for snow.

But if you’re a gal about town in Tahoe on a Saturday night, and looking for something fun to do before the powder hits, join fellow ladies in the area for a fun night at one of our favorite local outfitters. On November 22, Lake Tahoe native and pro-skier, Michelle Parker, will host a FREE evening at Tahoe Mountain Sports (Tahoe City, CA), leading a motivational discussion on her career and what it takes to be a successful action sports athlete.

Doors open at 5:00pm for shopping specials. There are great discounts on gear and clothing only ladies will enjoy during this event! There are also fabulous raffle prizes, including a Ghost Whisperer hooded down jacket ($300 value) from Mountain Hardware, and so much more to check out! The official program begins at 6:30pm.

All proceeds from this event benefit the SAFE AS Clinics, a local non-profit organization that heightens the awareness of community snow safety and avalanche awareness for women in an open and welcoming environment.

You can RSVP to the event on Facebook HERE!
