Mohawks and Beer…Apres Ski and Gunbarrel 25

If you’ve been up to Tahoe South in the Spring, then you know this isn’t an “off-season”. Far from it. Apres ski is going off and the event calendar is full. One iconic event is Glen Plake’s Gunbarrel 25. The man with the mohawk and rubber knees knows how to make a tough day fun. We check out some highlights from the GB25 and the scene around town in the this video…

What does a bald eagle, a bear cub, skiing, snowboarding and 24-hour night-life have in common? The Wild Side…

Lake Tahoe Visitor’s Authority and Tahoe South have come up with a great tagline to describe the area: The Wild Side. With all the outdoor activities we have, coupled with 24-hour nightlife, the tag fits.

Tahoe South is currently hosting the North American Snowsports Journalists Conference and First Tracks Productions was contracted to produce a video that showcases all the area has to offer while incorporating the new “Wild Side” theme. We had some fun with that part. Check it out!

Big Jump. Big Lake. Big…well, you get the idea.

The Nike Chosen tour had their Tahoe South stop this past weekend at Heavenly…and, it went off. The features and riding level were amazing. First Tracks was on hand to produce a video of the event for LTVA (Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority) and Tahoe South. As you’ll see with the backdrop we had to work with, Tahoe South is the perfect place for an event like this:

Keeping Up With the All-Women Sports Camp

First Tracks spent a beautiful August weekend at Northstar-at-Tahoe Resort with the All-Women Sports Camp. This was a cool event — participants could stand-up paddle, take part in an open-water swim, go for a mountain bike ride with world champion Marla Streb, road bike above Donner Lake, or compete in a mountain run up Northstar. They could also select from a host of great classes and seminars. Wow.

Capturing all that activity wasn’t easy. See for yourself; the 4-minute trailer is below, and here’s the 1-minute version.
