Alpenglow Sports welcomes local guide Dave Nettle as the first speaker of the 14th annual Winter Speaker Series on Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. These free events held at Olympic Village Lodge are designed to motivate, inspire and educate.

In “The Journey or the Destination?” Nettle takes a humorous look at the many methods of approach he has used over the years on various climbs around the world. With accounts from his most recent trip to East Africa and ascents of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya, Nettle argues that the journey of getting to a mountain or a remote alpine wall oftentimes can be as challenging, rewarding and fun as the ascent itself.

Other presenters will include famed athletes Jim Morrison, Kit DesLauriers, Adrian Ballinger and Hadley Hammer.

All ages are welcome. Raffle tickets and beverages will be available for purchase; proceeds benefit Adventure Risk Challenge. The Tahoe Weekly is a sponsor of the Winter Speaker Series. |
