Trail Work Day with Salomon

Let’s buff out the ski trails and Nordic center together!

Join the Tahoe XC Board of Directors and Executive Director Ben Grasseschi as we work together to prepare the Nordic center and trails for the coming season.

Day of details

Meet at Tahoe XC at 9:00am on Saturday, October 19th.

Wear long pants, long sleeve shirt, sun hat, leather gloves, sturdy shoes and prepare to work rain or shine. Bring your shovel, loppers, rakes, pick axes, rock bars, hand saws, etc. and a positive attitude!

Salomon Shoe Demo

A fun perk to the day is that Salomon will be joining us with a fleet of demo shoes! Try out Salmon Outlines, a day hiking shoe, and X Ultras, a light yet sturdy hiking boot. Both models will be perfect footwear for trail work.

Hot Lunch Provided

A hot lunch will be provided to everyone who volunteers. All volunteers must check in and sign a waiver. Please email for more info.
