Alta Alpina Challenge

2015 Alta Alpina Challenge Canceled Due to Washington Wildfire and Dangerous Weather Pattern

The "Washington" fire has grown considerably and there is now consensus that the southern half of our route will be off limits (and not a pleasant place to be). You can read more about the fire and monitor for updates at:

Forecasted developments in the weather for Saturday will both drive the Washington fire in unpredictable ways and spread smoke into areas that were previously smoke free. On the advice of our medical director and fire incident advisors we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2015 Alta Alpina Challenge.

Everyone registered for 2015 has had their registration applied to the 2016 Alta Alpina Challenge and is pre-registered for that event.

If you are already here in the Tahoe area and would like to enjoy a smoke-free ride this weekend, we would like you to join us for an Alta Alpina Club Ride with SAG support. We'll have plenty of ice, water, drinks, and snacks to make it a fun day. Details will be posted shortly.

Enjoy the beauty and challenge of cycling the Northern Sierra Nevada mountains.
