The Tahoe Maritime Museum is proud to partner with Placer Arts and NCArts to host the juried art exhibit, Sunken Treasures, to showcase work by local artists that explores the unseen world at the bottom of Lake Tahoe. Entries are due March 14, 2014.
The art exhibit will coincide with the museum’s history exhibit, Ghost Ships, opening on Memorial Weekend 2014 and running until April 19, 2015.

Daron Rahlves, four-time Olympian, World Champion and Truckee local, has refined the classic Silver Belt race that started at Sugar Bowl in the 1940s. Now called the “Banzai Tour,” the event mixes big mountain freeride action with ski and boarder-cross strategy in a mad-dash race series held at four ski resorts.
The tour continues at Alpine Meadows March 8 and 9, with fresh snow in the forecast.
