The wildest, richest rodeo in the west returned last week after a one-year absence: the Reno Rodeo! Kicking off its competition schedule on Thursday, June 17 with their traditional Xtreme Bulls event, it marked the first of Northern Nevada’s major events to make a full return following last year’s shutdowns due the pandemic.

 

The rodeo has had its full schedule of events as well as no spectator restrictions on attendance, with ten full days of competition and special events. Events will wrap up with finals on June 26 at the Outdoor Arena at the Livestock Events Center.

 

“The Reno Rodeo has been around for a long time and it’s been an important part of the fabric of our community, not only because of the economic impact to our region, but

Thanksgiving is a time to express gratitude, so it’s the perfect opportunity to share why we cherish our Montrêux Golf & Country Club. Conveniently located between Reno and Lake Tahoe, Montrêux is a private, 726-acre golf course community with approximately 550 luxury home sites. The centerpiece is the renowned 18-hole, Jack Nicklaus Signature Championship Course.

Here are 15 reasons why we are thankful for Montrêux:

1. World Class Golf. Montrêux’s Par 72 PGA Championship golf course features a number of drops in elevation as it meanders 7,500 yards through towering pines and flowing streams—creating a serene and spectacular golf setting. The signature hole is the Par 4 17th, featuring a 138-foot drop from the tee box to the fairway. The

Why was the 17th Fairway of Montreux’s Jack Nicklaus Championship Golf Course crowned the “Signature Hole?” The tee box is thrillingly perched 138 feet above the hole, providing an exhilarating view of the first shot. Gorgeously landscaped by both man and Mother Nature, the 464 Yard Par 4 features a narrow green protected by bunkers on each side, with Galena Creek running alongside the left portion of the fairway.

Just steps from the 17th tee box, our listing at 6031 Lake Geneva Drive has front-row seats to the golfing action. The hole is especially entertaining during the annual Barracuda Championship, one of only 45 stops on the PGA Tour. You can witness the magnetic excitement of professional golf while sipping an

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.

Many local ski resorts will be closing by the end of April, so get

Lake Tahoe ski resorts have extended their operations well into the spring following record snowfall in February.

Skiers and riders rejoice! More than 50 feet of snow has fallen so far this season and the mountains could even get a bit more. An extended season has been announced by the area’s resorts, which means more bang for your buck for season pass-holders.

Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows will operate lifts in Squaw through July 7, which is just 8 days shy of their latest closing date ever on July 15, 2017. Last year, Squaw closed following Memorial Day weekend. 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.
