Can you do it without falling on your face? There are also fantastic prizes to entice you to enter. Snowshoes are provided for contestants, and sign up starts at 5 p.m. on Saturday, January 18. This is a free race, and all ages are encouraged to participate. Camp Richardson Historic Resort & Marina is at 1900 Jameson Beach Road n South Lake Tahoe. READ MORE
