Team Vacation: three slope sessions and three bands, including Dead Winter Carpenters

Country rockers Lonesome Locomotive (Saturday, American Legion) are part of a weekend of winter fun with Team Vacation.

Bonfire and Salomon’s Team Vacation is coming to Tahoe this weekend.

The riders will hit the slopes Saturday at Northstar and Sunday at Heavenly. The celebration moves inside Saturday night at the American Legion in South Lake Tahoe with a triple-header concert headlined by Action’s Band of the Year, the Dead Winter Carpenters.

Last week the Dead Winter Carpenters broke the attendance record for a free show in the Crystal Bay Casino Crown Room. Casino Manger Bill Wood estimated the crowd at between 600 and 700. “It was crazy,” he said.

The evening will feature a raffle and giveaways by Salomon and Bonfire. Proceeds will benefit the Heavenly Foundation. Ski and snowboard shop employees will be admitted free when they present a pay receipt.

The South Shore bluegrass band Bison also will perform, along with a country-rock group from San Francisco, Lonesome Locomotive, which features a cello player, Steven Sparapani.

Bonfire and Salomon Team Manager Java Fernandez said, “Most of the team has spent the last several seasons killing themselves for different video projects or contests so it feels like a good time to spend a year riding resorts and having fun as a crew. Not to mention, we’re gonna make a web series and a tour video that is going to be pretty awesome.”

Riders participating include: Jed Anderson, Bode Merrill, Jenny Jones, Louif Paradis, Chris Grenier, Annie Boulanger, Harrison Gordon, David Benedek, Josh Dirksen, Desiree Melancon, Wolle Nyvelt, Chris Carr, Sylvain Bourbousson, Taka Nakai, Jamie Nicholls, Kohei Kudo Scotty Arnold and Rolf Nylander.
