SnowFest! Arctic Paddle March 10

Posted on February 26, 2013
Filed Under North Tahoe Events, Water Activities

Of course. Leave it to a bunch of locals on this one.

To mark SnowFest! in true Tahoe fashion, local paddlers are holding a stand up paddle race on Sunday, March 10, 2013. Brave the cold, experience the magic.

To accommodate dual leisure athletes, the race is only a 2 mile sprint race starting at 11am.  Perfect for warming up to go skiing in the afternoon.

Register online or the day of the event at the Adrift Tahoe in Kings Beach starting at 9am. The after party takes place at Jason’s Beachside Grill with awards, prizes, lunch, refreshments & live music so you can get warm and refuel for the rest of SnowFest!

Stop the Spread of Aquatic Invaders.
Clean • Drain • Dry

Please join our local paddle shops and other paddlers and become a Tahoe Keeper to help stop the spread of Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) into Lake Tahoe and Truckee water bodies.

It’s easy. It’s free. It matters.
And, you’ll get a really cool sticker!

Aquatic invasive species (AIS) threaten Lake Tahoe’s famous water clarity. Invaders spread through the transport of water and debris that can collect in cockpits and hatches, and cling to outer hulls, rudders and paddles. Spreading AIS violates local, state, and federal laws.

Self-Inspect & Decontaminate: The Tahoe Keepers online training program demonstrates how to Clean, Drain and Dry your watercraft and gear every time you haul out or move between water bodies, and properly Dispose of any plants or debris.

  • CLEAN watercraft with pressurized water, removing all dirt, plant, and animal material from your rudder, hull, cockpit, and fishing gear.
  • DRAIN the water from your hatches and cockpits on land before you leave the immediate area.
  • DRY your watercraft before launching it again.
  • DISPOSE of foreign matter above the waterline on dry land or in a trash can.

When paddling in an area infested with AIS or if you find contaminants on your boat or board, implement additional decontamination measures, such as spraying with pressurized water and keeping your watercraft completely dry for at least 5 days.

Prevent In-basin Transfer of AIS: If you only paddle within the Lake Tahoe basin, it is still very important to inspect your watercraft and gear to ensure you are not inadvertently transporting invaders found in Lake Tahoe to other Tahoe-Truckee area water bodies.

If you find AIS on your equipment or you are arriving at Lake Tahoe from a region with infested water bodies, inspections and decontaminations are available free of charge at the roadside watercraft inspection stations.

Learn more and join the Tahoe Keepers stewardship community at www.TahoeKeepers.org.  Call 1-888-824-6267 for the AIS hotline.

It’s easy. It’s free.  It matters.
