TL;DR: I'm running a marathon in late July to raise funds for Tahoe Nordic Search & Rescue
TAHOE NORDIC SEARCH & RESCUE was conceived in 1976 as a response to the death of a boy lost off the back side of Northstar-At-Tahoe ski area during a blizzard. At the time, no organized backcountry team existed to help search for him. Desperate phone calls to some local Nordic skiers produced a search party which found him only after he had perished. This group, along with the boy's father (who today still remains one of the Nordic Team's most active members), learned there was an important void to be filled.
I'm _sure_ that at least one of you fools reading this will eventually be rescued, extracted, or otherwise have your life saved by these guys.
