Winter Fest Kicks Off in Tahoe

Posted by Scott Kegley on March 17, 2011 – 4:54 PM

As you can see, it’s a beautiful day here at the Resort at Squaw Creek in Lake Tahoe as the 49ers are holding their 11th Annual Winter Fest. It’s a weekend-long event to raise money for the 49ers Foundation, which helps keep kids safe, on track and in school.

This is my third straight year coming to this event and I’ll be posting blogs, photos and videos throughout the weekend.

With March Madness in full swing, there have already been some thrilling upsets in the NCAA tournament, but the guests and alumni checking in certainly won’t be upset with the weekend’s activities. After a welcome reception tonight, guests will be treated to an ice carving competition, curling demonstration, live and silent auctions and nightly dinners featuring entertainers such as Third Eye Blind’s Stephan Jenkins.

Here are some photos of the guests arriving:

After a reception featuring wines and appetizers, some of the guests made their way outside. Thankfully there was plenty of heat around the fire pit as Dennnis Brown, the 49ers Gold Rush and others went in search of the perfect s’more. Dennis and his son Derrick certainly has their struggles, but in the end you can’t go wrong with marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate.

Enjoy the video below.

Stay tuned for more updated throughout the weekend.
