The Courage Project benefit: ’80s Retro Ski Bash
February 1, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Come on out to Alibi Ale Works – Truckee Public House for a ski party with a purpose. It’ll be all about experiencing the hey-day of the loud and loose 80’s ski scene. Even better, this event all goes to benefit a great cause, as all proceeds from ticket sales to ’80s Retro Ski Bash benefit The Courage Project, a non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of local children struggling with anxiety and depression.
See link for advanced ticket sales below. If not sold out, tickets will also be available at the doorl.
Step back in time to the ’80s ski scene! Think skinny skis, fanny packs and neon. Think Hot Dog: The Movie, Hot Tub Time Machine, Blizzard of Ahhs and Glen Plake. Be ready to dance to classic ’80s tracks from new wave to big hair bands. To top it off, we’ll relive the golden age that was 1980’s MTV, with the classic music videos for all those tunes running all night on Alibi’s big screen.
For those who might have attended the 30th anniversary celebration of “Hot Dog: The Movie” in 2014 at Squaw, you get the vibe! (Bear in mind, however, this is not an official Hot Dog branded event, and we won’t be airing the film).
80’s ski fashion highly encouraged! Go all out and crush it with a neon one-piece or speedsuit if you can get your hands on one. Or go with whatever screams 80’s skiing to you! But don’t let lack of a killer outfit stop you from getting your 80’s on, either. Dab on a little zinc oxide or toss on a pair of Vuarnets, and you’re good to go!
