Lake Tahoe is home to limitless outdoor activities for nearly any sporting adventure. Nonetheless, many of us have ambitions to experience our athletic pursuits far outside the Basin.

Oh man, hard question! I would travel to Australia to snorkel in the Great Barrier Reef. I figure it’ll only be around for a little while longer, as it’s already been disappearing so fast.

I would go surfing in Hawaii, I hear it’s amazing! I’ve surfed Tahoe before during the huge storms, but that doesn’t really count.

Squaw Valley Security
I’ve always wanted to check out the skiing in Utah. Friends from Squaw Valley go all the time and say the snow is much colder and lighter for epic powder days.
Britt Otis, Kings Beach
I play basketball all the time and so I would travel to LA to get in on some street ball. That, and I’ve always wanted to watch the NBA All-Star game at the Staples Center.
Kaci Wright, Crystal Bay
I would want to go to Alaska to watch the Iditarod. I love huskies and see dog sleds at Squaw, and have always wanted to watch the real thing.
