North Lake Tahoe And Travel Nevada Launch Tahoe Ale Trail Campaign

Tuesday, September 15, 2015 - by Stephanie Myers

Whether you pedal, paddle or hike, the watering hole at the end of a long day exploring North Tahoe is the incentive that pushes many recreationists through that last mile.

North Tahoe has stepped up to help those adventure-seekers searching for the perfect pairing of singletrack and suds or paddling and pints with the unique North Lake Tahoe Ale Trail Campaign. With an interactive online map, a video series and a social media campaign, the tourism destination seeks to inspire and educate visitors and locals to experience new trails and follow it up with a drink at a new bar. Beyond the digital elements, the campaign encourages visitors to visit a participating stop or a North Lake Tahoe Visitor Center to receive a free Tahoe Ale Trail sticker after they share a photo online with the hashtag #TahoeAleTrail.

The campaign highlights North Tahoe’s burgeoning craft beer scene along with its world-class hiking, mountain biking, road cycling and paddleboarding or kayaking.

The campaign highlights sections of the Tahoe Rim Trail, road bike rides like the Mt. Rose Summit climb and paddleboarding routes like Homewood to Meeks Bay.

Videos were shot on location at Mellow Fellow, Tunnel Creek Café, Alibi Ale Works and Pier 111.

The project was funded by a grant from TravelNevada, the Nevada state tourism authority, and supported by the North Lake Tahoe Marketing Cooperative and The Abbi Agency.

Am I Alone?

 Am I alone seems to be quite apt as I begin to form sentences, thoughts and concerns regarding the state of this country. I feel like I am alone trying, somehow, to justify Trump and understand why he is constantly in the middle of chaos.  Now coined as the Liar-in-Chief, Chief Foreign Affairs Coordinator acting for his pal Russian Dictator, Putin.  The silence ...

Six Things We Can Do About Mass Shootings - And Response (3)

All politics aside, the recent shooting in Florida, and every other shooting in a public place, is a senseless and, possibly, preventable tragedy. It is absurd that we can’t gather in a free society without the fear of some nut job or terrorist using us as targets.   And then the cries of “do something!” from every quarter. But, other than the obvious attempt by agenda-pushers ... (click for more)
