Tahoe to celebrate Olympians
March 1, 2014
A citywide celebration at South Lake Tahoe to welcome home South Shore athletes will be held March 15.
Jamie Anderson and Maddie Bowman, who won gold for snowboarding slopestyle and freeskiing halfpipe, respectively, and Hannah Teter, who placed fourth in snowboarding halfpipe, will be recognized at Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort.
A procession will take the Olympians via fire truck from South Tahoe High School onto U.S. Highway 50, past the airport and through the town of Meyers, concluding at Sierra-at-Tahoe. Residents can line U.S. 50 along the route and cheer the procession.
The South Tahoe High School marching band will greet the Olympians at Sierra-at-Tahoe's new Solstice Plaza at 1:40 p.m.
Well-wishers and partygoers are encouraged to board buses or carpool to the resort, as parking will be limited. The athletes will depart from South Tahoe High School at 1 p.m. Bus schedules, times and event details will be available at http://www.sierraattahoe.com.
