It's finally here: the base-to-base gondola connecting two mountains. It's been the talk of local life for decades. Chances are if you have spent any considerable amount of time skiing or riding at Alpine or Palisades Tahoe, you've dreamt of the possibility of accessing both without having to hop on a shuttle. Well, that day has come, friends! Don't miss out on all the fun on Saturday, December 17th to celebrate the launch of the historic opening of the Base-to-Base Gondola, connecting The Village at Palisades Tahoe to the Alpine Lodge. The gondola is a 16-minute ride across the Sierras offering incredible views of Lake Tahoe.
Here are all the festivities to take part in:
FREE MOUNTAIN TOURS, HOSTED BY THE NORTH FACE MOUNTAIN GUIDE
