Lake Tahoe Summerfest is a world-class celebration of the arts that enriches the cultural, educational, and economic vitality of the Lake Tahoe Basin. Our quest is to provide extraordinary music, art, theatre, and seminars to local, national, and international audiences. This was a tough one to shoot as it was hard not to just relax and enjoy the amazing music and experience in front of me…
The Ragnar 24 hour trail relay came to Sierra at Tahoe recently and we put together this highlight video of the action. This was a really fun event and a great example of what First Tracks can do with even a small budget. Anthony was a one-person crew this day shooting the photos toward the beginning of the video as well as all of the video (including the aerial shots). See what 24 hours looks like in 1.5 minutes:
The 4th was a great time in Tahoe. Part of the fun for us involved fireworks and mountain bikes – not together. Though, the thought of two people riding at each-other with roman candles is intriguing and something I expect to see on a reality show in the near future, our capturing of these things occurred at different times over the holiday weekend. Thanks to Amy and Ben from TAMBA (Tahoe Area Mountain Bike Association) for being willing models. And, thanks to Tahoe South and all parties involved for putting on such an amazing fireworks display.

It seems like everything from cars to vacations are still marketed with some weird 50s mentality of gender norms about what men like and what women like. We decided to have some fun at the expense of that in our latest project for Tahoe South…

The Tour de Tahoe gives riders a great opportunity to do an amazing ride and many do it for an amazing cause. A lot of the riders were raising money to benefit Juvenile Diabetes Research. Even if you’re not in to road cycling, check this out for the gorgeous views…or, at least for the spandex.
On May 17th, The Slow Rollers of South Lake Tahoe put together an amazing event – a single-file bicycle parade with the goal of breaking a Guinness World Record. The previous record was 916 riders in Davis, CA. Well, we shattered that – and had a great time doing it! Check out the fun…
The pride we get from doing a good job and knowing we did a good job is all well and good. But at the same time, it’s a cool feeling when our work is recognized by our peers. Our egos need some love too. So, we’re pretty stoked that 2 videos that First Tracks recently produced have received some really positive recognition:
In February, First Tracks produced a video on the opening of the Burton-Star Wars park at Sierra-at-Tahoe — an amazing experience that introuduces little ones to the sport of snowboarding in a fun and unique fashion. Ski Area Management, an industry/trade magazine, highlighted this video (one of only 4 videos they recognized positively) and labeled it the “Heartwarming Video of the Year.” You can see the video here:
Also in February, First Tracks produced a video to help get some attention for a great non-profit, SkiDUCK. The video — a parody of the song “I’ve Been Everywhere” changed to “I’ve Skied Everywhere” — will be showcased at the National Ski Area Association’s annual conference in San Antonio this month. Not going to make it to the conference? No worries.You can see the video here:
