36 Hours in Lake Tahoe

With new direct daily flights between Reno Tahoe and New York City beginning in May, The New York Times has put together a getaway guide for New Yorkers to keep Reno Tahoe at the top of their list for weekend getaways.

“The lake’s vastness can be absorbed only by being there — or better yet, skiing the dozen resorts surrounding it, their trails like frozen white waterfalls cutting through the fir-lined mountains. Lake Tahoe has two distinctive areas: the north side, where cowboy-chic cabins and semi-isolated shops and cafes overlook a quiet shoreline; and South Tahoe, which glitters with casinos, clubs and a slew of new upscale boutique hotels hovering above the lake. Skiing both sides in one weekend is an ambitious undertaking, but the lake’s wilderness spirit and surprising contrasts are compelling enough to pull you into its adventurous orbit…” Continue reading the full, original story with the suggested itinerary on New York Times Travel.

Snow Fun Around Tahoe

2359339660_a7688ed22e_o

Looking for some fun and snowy activities to do this winter? Skiing and snowboarding are always popular options, but we’ve come up with a few other ways to get out into the snow.

Sledding is always an exciting way to spend a winter day outside. With the snowy mountains just a short drive away, many sledding areas are accessible to almost anybody. Granlibakken is one of many local resorts that has a sledding area that is open daily, and they offer saucer rentals for those who do not have their own. Squaw Valley has snow tubing lanes at their SnoVentures activities center that are accessed by a new covered magic carpet surface lift. Soda Springs Resort is another option to fulfill all of your snow tubing desires. Their very own Tube Town has more than eight long runs and a 390′ surface lift! Northstar California’s tubing area is another place to go. The 200 yard tubing hill is accessed by tow lift and is sure to be a wild ride!

Snowshoeing is another awesome way to have fun in the snow and view some beautiful winter scenery. Mount Tallac Trail and Fallen Leaf Lake Trail are great options, with 5 and 10 miles of trails respectively. Tahoe Adventure Company offers customized snowshoe tours throughout the Lake Tahoe area that are lead by knowledgeable guides who will educate you on area history and facts. North Tahoe Adventures is another great group to get a snowshoe tour from. With four easy to moderate trails, ranging from .75 miles to 4.5 miles, their guides will give you the experience you’re looking for. Squaw Valley Resort also has options for every snowshoeing fan. All trails originate at the Resort at Squaw Creek (accessible by shuttle from the Squaw Valley parking lot), and they even offer night tours so you can snowshoe under the beautiful winter moon.

One more unique winter experience is dog sledding, and Sierra Adventures is a great place to go! Cruise through the high Sierra snow on your very own dog sled and bring the kids for their Family Dog Sled Excursion. Tahoe Dog Sled Tours offer tours seven days a week (weather permitting) pulled by a team of trained Huskies, that last about one hour through the Sierra Nevada mountains. Squaw Valley Resort is in on the dog sledding action with Wilderness Adventures, as well. They’re offering hour-long tours led by a racing guide and team of eight to ten Huskies through the Squaw Valley Meadow. Guests ride in a four-person sled and will move at speeds of about 13.5 mph.

These unique and unforgettable experiences are a great way to have some winter fun with the whole family. Visit each individual website for schedules, reservations, and more information to plan your trip. Remember to dress warm!

Stand-up Paddleboarding at Lake Tahoe

Stand Up PaddleboardingStand Up Paddleboarding… Hopefully you’ve heard of the latest trend in water sports. Maybe a friend told you about it – a new water activity that combines kayaking and surfing. Or, maybe you’ve seen it- while sitting on the beach and looking out onto the lake. You were intrigued by someone gracefully balancing on what looks like an over-sized surfboard, paddling the waters. If this is you, and you haven’t already joined the paddleboard movement, now’s the time! Standup paddleboarding (also known as SUP) is the fastest growing water sport in the nation… it’s easy to learn, fun for all ages, and proves a great, unique way to enjoy and explore the water! The sport can be a serene experience as you glide through the water taking in the scenery, or it can be as physically challenging as you want – working every muscle as you trim and tone. And, there’s no better place to paddleboard than the beautiful clear blue water of Lake Tahoe, where you can paddle by magnificent granite boulders, peer at fish swimming at the bottom of the lake, and observe breathtaking views of snow-capped mountains.

Here’s a guide to stand-up paddleboarding in the Lake Tahoe area to help you become a SUP-er in no time!

Rentals, Sales, Lessons, Tours:

Whether this is your first time testing the waters, or you are an experienced pro, paddleboarding is a great way to get on the water and experience Lake Tahoe. There is no shortage of companies for rentals, sales, lessons and tours throughout the area. Get out there and find out why Lake Tahoe is considered the largest, most beautiful flat water paddle venue in the country!

EVENTS:

As you may have noticed, people are practically living on paddleboards. They take their dogs and kids on them. They do yoga on them. Personal trainers use them to help clients balance and develop core strength. And, of course, people compete on them. Along with Hawaii, Lake Tahoe is known as an originator of the sport, hosting two of the country’s largest paddling events, Ta-Hoe Nau and the Tahoe Fall Classic. These events are “shore” to be a great time for both competitors and spectators.

Ta-Hoe Nalu, Aug. 15-17 in Kings Beach, North Lake Tahoe, is the longest running and largest SUP race event in the United States. This family-friendly event features distance and beginner races, a live concert, sand castle building contests, and more than $10,000 in cash and prizes. The interactive event also invites attendees to participate in workshops, dine at the full-service food and beverage court, and enjoy Saturday’s opening ceremonies featuring Polynesian dancers from Halau Hula ‘O Leilani at 7:30 a.m. Registration opens at 2 p.m. Friday, Aug. 15 and racing begins at 8:30 a.m. Saturday morning. Sunday’s five-mile race kicks-off at 9 a.m. and the weekend wraps up at 4 p.m. with closing ceremonies.

The Tahoe Fall Classic, Sept 13-14, is the third and final race in the Tahoe Cup race series, present by O’Neill and hosted by the Lake Tahoe Paddleboard Association (LTPA). This prone paddle race is a 22-mile, point-to-point race from El Dorado Beach in South Lake Tahoe to Kings Beach State Beach. It is the longest inland distance paddleboard race in the world and is expected to draw hundreds of competitors from all over the country. SUP demos are provided throughout the weekend compliments of SURFTECH and lunch is provided by Men Wielding Fire. Registration is now open at www.tahoecup.org and a $300 cash purse is awarded to the first paddler to finish.
