Recently I started seeing some talk on Twitter about a Tahoe Snowcial. I was curious as to what this was because it sounded like something interesting for those involved in social media in the ski industry. I looked up the website for the event on Google and here’s what I found.
Tahoe Snowcial’s website describes the event as,
“Snowcial is a one-of-a-kind winter conference that attracts an elite community of global snowsports enthusiasts who come together every year since 2009 to connect with their passion for snow, link turns with their friends and share their stories online. Created by hardcore skiers and snowboarders and set in one of the world’s most iconic snowsports locations, Heavenly, Lake Tahoe, Snowcial puts as much emphasis on interaction as it does education, providing opportunities to develop personally as well as professionally, both on the mountain and off.”
This year the event is from January 18th-21st at Heavenly in South Lake Tahoe. Every year there is a guest speaker that highlights the entire event. This year they have Joe Fernandez, who is the CEO and co-founder of Klout. There are alos many other events including a VIP poker night, ski days at Heavenly, and after parties at different clubs in the area.
This event is very appealing to me. I think attending something like this would be a good opportunity to put my foot in the door in the industry and develop relationships among those already in the industry. The activities sound like a lot of fun and I think it would be a great way to learn a lot of new skills.
