Alpenglow Sports is an original California Mountain Shop that has been providing locals and visitors with inspiration, local knowledge and the best gear to enjoy the great outdoors since 1973. Based in Tahoe City, we take pride in being community, socially and environmentally responsible to ensure Lake Tahoe stays one of the best places to play, visit, and live in California.
Your specialty gear shop for human-powered adventures on snow, dirt, and rock. We curate gear from trusted brands so that you can ski, climb, hike, and run with confidence. We test new gear each season, looking for exceptional products and brands that deliver the best quality.
We do not exist to sell you gear. Alpenglow Sports serves the community first by fostering a friendly atmosphere in the shop and hosting philanthropic community events. In a sea of uniformity and big box business ethics, we believe in environmental and social responsibility. More than a specialty retailer, we take pride in being a connected and invested community resource for all things North Lake Tahoe.
The Alpenglow Sports Winter Speaker Series presented by Tahoe Mountain Realty is the largest free community speaker series in the country. We host the biggest names in the outdoor industry who share stories about outdoor adventure. We have two simple goals: 1) to inspire and motivate mountain athletes to pursue their outdoor dreams and 2) to raise funds for nonprofit organizations making a tangible difference in the North Lake Tahoe and Truckee community.
