SnowFest's "coolest" event for 31 years running! Each year, hundreds of spectators line the pier and deck at Gar Woods to watch hardy souls brave the frigid waters of Lake Tahoe. Participants swim approx. 250 yards in 39 degree weather bone-chilling waters before returning to Gar Woods Bar to "minimize the pain." Free appetizers will be provided following the event and everyone is encouraged to stick around for the hugely popular raffle after the swim.

"Warmups" @ 11:00, Race @ 2:30

Price: Free
