The Northern Grease – Lake Tahoe Tour

Local Freshies in association with Beyond Boarding announces the Northern Grease – Lake Tahoe Movie Tour. The tour is also a fundraiser for Beyond Boarding and the League to Save Lake Tahoe (Keep Tahoe Blue). As a community we need to unite and get involved. So here at Local Freshies we decided to put on a fun little get together with us and a couple hundred of our closest friends to do just that!

“Northern Grease?”

It’s a documentary telling a story of young snowboarders and surfers learning the real social and environmental impacts of resource extraction. Through humor, mechanical mishaps, adventure and an evolving critical perspective, Northern Grease depicts the often untold stories of those on the front lines of the threats fossil fuel expansion are already having in northern communities throughout Canada. It’s a story that can hit home on the shores of Lake Tahoe as we attempt to balance the delicate line between tourism but at the same time keeping the lake beautiful.
