The event centers for Stages 1-3 will be at the event arenas.
The event center for Stages 4-10 is Northstar California Resort, an all-weather recreation center in the beautiful Lake Tahoe region of California. It is 300 km north-east of San Francisco, and 60 km south-west of Reno, Nevada, both of which have major airports. The competition area is in the Sierra Nevada mountains, and is readily accessible by major roads.
Tourism and recreation are a major part of the area economy, with so many opportunities for adventure and fun that many participants will choose to schedule significant time before and/or after the events to participate in many activities. The following images give an indication of the appeal of this area to outdoors sports enthusiasts of every kind:
