With the highest concentration of ski resorts in North America, it’s no wonder Reno-Tahoe is home to so many Winter Olympic athletes. For the third straight winter event, local athletes won a region-best four medals. This year, Reno’s David Wise won the silver medal in the ski halfpipe, to add to this previous collection of two gold medals.

Northern Lake Tahoe played host to the 1960 Olympic Games in Squaw Valley, one of the largest ski areas in the United States. The popular landmark has served as inspiration for everyday skiers and local Olympic hopefuls. Since the games, visitors have come to ski at Palisades Lake Tahoe Ski Resort on the mountain that Olympians jumped in the 60’s and to see the tribute sign with the Olympics Rings near the ski

Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe is a favorite resort for many locals and visitors to the Reno-Tahoe area. This winter, work will begin to upgrade some of the ski terrain of the mountain and introduce a brand-new high-speed chairlift.

The Lakeview area of the mountain will be expanding to include new terrain and the project is estimated to cost around $7.5 million, with expected completion ahead of the 2022 – 23 winter season.

 

“For 41 years, the Lakeview triple has provided access to incredible skiing and riding and expansive views of Lake Tahoe. Last season, strong ridership combined with COVID-19 related chairlift restrictions proved it necessary to increase Lakeview’s lift capacity,” said Mike Pierce, Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe marketing director. “When

One of the largest winters on record graced the Reno-Tahoe region and each week we can feel it getting a little bit warmer.

When it seemed like spring would never come, suddenly the sun is shining! Those bluebird days put the itch of summer in our shoes and we’re looking forward to enjoying so many springtime activities. You can enjoy the best of both worlds, or as locals affectionately call it “The Tahoe Trifecta”.

What is the Trifecta? Golf, boat/kayak and ski all in the same day. Seems impossible, but we can guarantee you that it isn’t. The weather is just warm enough to be comfortable, but not so warm that the lake is full of boats and paddlers.

Alpine Meadows will operate into May with its schedule dependent on both weather and the construction of a high-speed chair lift that will replace Hot Wheels.
