As a member of the South Lake Tahoe community, we know how important it is to support our small businesses.

We know that more and more small businesses here in South Lake Tahoe are being affected and to continue to support them as much as we can, we’ve compiled a list of 5 local businesses that you can support from home.

1. Mountain West

How You Can Help: 1) They are still providing services such as tuning, installation, repairs and running good deals on skis and boards. 2) You can purchase a gift card from their store to use it at a later date. 3) You can leave them a positive Yelp Review. 4) With the ski resorts being currently closed, more people are looking to explore the back-country. You can contact Mountain West to get set up with back-country gear. 5) You can share their content on Social Media to help bring awareness to their business.

2. Black Ice Theatre Co.

How You Can Help: 1)  You can watch, like and share the "Sheltered Shorts" on their Facebook page every night at 7:30pm. 2) They are up on Amazon Smile, so a small portion of every purchase you make could be donated to Black Ice if you choose them as your charity. 3) They are looking for original monologues for their play in development called "The Identity Chronicles". 4) They are seeking submissions from comedians for their next Comedy Melt. You can visit the Get Involved section of their website to learn more. 5) They will have an online store going up soon as well as Season Tickets available for Season 3. 6) If your business would like to sponsor Black Ice, it comes with great perks like free tickets, free drinks, your logo displayed prominently in the Theater lobby, etc. You can contact Rich at the email address below for a sponsorship packet. 7) They are accepting donations on their website.

Black Ice Theatre was founded in order to engage audiences through fresh and daring plays that explore themes that are both vital to the modern moment and timeless representations of the human experience. Much like black ice itself, their plays will be unexpected and slick. Black comedies, intense dramas, plays based on actual events & characters not often represented in Tahoe will fill their 3-to-4 show seasons. They create a safe and artistic space to both entertain and challenge their audiences. Theatre is a vital part of the Tahoe experience for both locals and visitors. It brings people together. It helps create empathy. It stimulates the economy. And we need more of it.
