During the winter of 1960, athletes from around the world came to Lake Tahoe to participate in the Winter Olympic Games. The biathlon and cross country events were held in what is now Sugar Pine Point State Park. Join park staff, the West Shore Business Association and the Sierra State Parks Foundation as we celebrate our snow heritage with a series of events designed to bring families and friends together as we celebrate what makes our region so special. This historic venture will come alive with the Olympic spirit as the public is invited to join us for a week of special events. Scheduled events will include an all ages, beginners, modified biathlon event; snowshoe hikes highlighting our Olympic heritage; and Opening Ceremonies. A full list of events can be found on the park website. contact blindemann@parks.ca.gov for more information.
