Snowsport enthusiasts are patiently waiting for the powder to fall on Lake Tahoe’s ski resorts. Here’s all that’s new for the 2018/2019 season.

Believe it or not, ski season has begun in the Tahoe region and the hopes for another long and strong winter are high. Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe opened limited terrain the weekend of October 19 for season-pass holders and plans to reopen to the public this weekend (October 26) with limited terrain. Mt. Rose is usually the first to open due to its area-high base elevation of 8,260 feet.

Last year we had a weaker snow season overall in the greater Reno-Tahoe area, but Mt. Rose still had 324 inches of snow which allowed its skiers to carve and glide down its 1,200 acres from October to the end of April. During the

The fall views in Lake Tahoe are absolutely stunning this time of year and we have the best hikes to enjoy a picnic and the views.

The best hikes end with aged cheese, cured meats and other delicious picnic items. Before the snow begins to flurry, fall is a great time to get out and enjoy all the diverse beauty of the Sierra Nevada. The many different colors and the crisp, clear air pair perfectly with the clear blues of Lake Tahoe’s waters (and of course a snack). No matter your hiking level, the five below range in distance and difficulty so there is a hike here for you!

Lake Margaret

The hike to Lake Margaret is an out-and-back trail of about 4.6 miles. Located in the El Dorado National Forest, there are large granite rocks all along the

The Taylor Creek Visitor Center is the place to be this weekend to see the kokanee salmon make their way upstream for spawning.

The Fall Fish Festival returns on October 6 – 7 from 10a.m. to 4 p.m. each day and all of the salmon have turned bright red just in time. The Taylor Creek Visitor Center is located on California Route 89 about 3 miles north of South Lake Tahoe. The U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit hosts the event in collaboration with Great Basin Institute and the festival offers opportunities to learn about native fish species in Tahoe and its tributaries. The Lahontan cutthroat trout is considered “threatened” as a species by the federal government.

On Saturday, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has a giant

In just two weeks, one of Lake Tahoe’s greatest secrets will be unveiled.

At the bottom of Emerald Bay are the sites of more than a dozen sunken vessels. California State Parks will open an underwater trail to four sites in Emerald Bay leading visitors through a boat graveyard. Take a boat and peer down into the wreckage dating back from the 1920s and ‘30s. State park divers found two large barges and a dozen recreational boats, including a vintage 27-foot launch. Denise Jaffe is the associate state archaeologist who headed up the project and a scuba diver who helped develop it.

This is the largest and most diverse group of sunken small watercraft of their type in their original location. The trail will be called the “Emerald Bay Maritime

There are so many awesome outdoor experiences around Reno and Lake Tahoe and Interbike 2018 is here this week so we wanted to share some of our favorite mountain biking trails.

Before we know it, members of the biking world from all over will be descending on our area looking for great places to ride. These trails are fun for locals and visitors alike!

Peavine

Peavine is a great place to start here in the Reno area. It has a huge network of trails and the Biggest Little Trail Stewardship has spent recent years adding and improving the single-track trails. Peavine is a big mountain all by itself on the northwest side of town, resulting in fast, flowy trails with awesome views of downtown Reno and the Sierra Nevada.

Lake Tahoe is the summertime go-to and there’s nothing better than enjoying a delicious meal with the lake’s perfect background.

As you roam around Tahoe’s 72 miles of shoreline wondering what to do next, be sure to check out these fabulous eateries. What could be better than an umbrella-shaded table on a restaurant deck where the cool breeze is highlighted by even cooler margaritas? Nothing. Nothing is better.

Hint: Call ahead for a reservation on the deck and remember to be patient. At the end of the day, everyone else wants to sit on a deck and watch the sunset too.
