What: Keep Sierra Clean Day

When: 10 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 11

Where: Sierra-at-Tahoe

Tickets: Free


An annual effort to clean up the slopes at Sierra-at-Tahoe will feature music from a Santa Cruz group that specializes in vocal harmonies, soulful lyrics and unique melodies.

Abalone Grey includes Bobcat Rob Armenti (vocals, guitar, banjo), Emma Rae Marie Shaw (vocals, bass), Kat Factor (vocals, guitar, washboard), Luke Kinney (vocals, mandolin, guitar) and Noah Freedman (fiddle/violin, vocals).

“As a group they showcase a strong collection of musical talent, translating into folk love ballads, murderous melodies and foot stomping rhythms,” according to the group’s online biography.

The group is set to perform as part of Keep Sierra Clean Day, which takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 11.

“The mountain gives to us each winter, let’s pitch in together to give a little back to her,” according to an announcement for the event. “Keep Sierra Clean Day starts with a collective trash ‘sweep’ from Nob Hill Chair to the Solstice Plaza in the base area + for the first time ever we will dip into West Bowl! In addition to the stashes you will find along the way, secret treasures will be hidden around the mountain for prizes!”

A free wax station, product discounts and lunch will be part of the festivities.

Participants are encouraged to bring gloves. Trash bags are provided.
