TASTE News Service, January 7, 2020 – High stepping fun returns to Camp Richardson Jan. 18 as amateur contestants strap on snowshoes and try their luck in the resort's annual snowshoe cocktail races.

This three-part series held on the beach in front of the Beacon Bar and Grill tests participants' balance, speed, and agility as racers, cocktail trays in hand, navigate through obstacles, and up and down the beach.

Novice, amateur and expert snowshoe racers are eligible to compete in these Snowshoe Cocktail Races (Snowshoes are provided). Racers will run, knees up, kicking snow with their snowshoes while balancing a tray full of drinks hoping to be the fastest without spilling.

The winner is the fastest and driest at the finish. Spill your drinks and you lose. For their efforts, competitors can win prizes that range from snowshoes and dining certificates to equipment and marina rentals. Registration is free for multiple race categories and signups start at 5 p.m. at the Beacon Bar and Grill. Races kick off at 7 p.m.

Prize sponsors include Action Watersports, Round Hill Pines Beach Resort, and Camp Richardson.

Parts two and three in the series are scheduled for Feb. 15 and March 21.

From quaint cabins right on the beach of Lake Tahoe to cozy rooms in the historic hotel, Camp Richardson runs the gauntlet of rustic resort lodging. For more information about the snowshoe races and other winter activities at this South Lake Tahoe resort visit
