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…
Welcome to our monthly Partner Spotlight! Where would we be without our partners in the community? They are just one of the many reasons that Reno-Tahoe is such a special place to live.

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.
The old Galena Lodge welcomes a trio of brand-new businesses, the perfect pit stops before or apres ski!
For 30+ years, the Alpine lodge on Mount Rose Highway was home to restaurants. You’ll find the quaint location just a few minutes beyond Montreux, in the Galena Forest area as the road rises towards Lake Tahoe. The Galena Forest Inn was built and opened in the lodge in 1983 by Reno culinary figures Gaudenz Derungs and Walter Zahnd. Julius Weiss, another Reno chef, bought the restaurant in 1988 and ran it for a decade before it was purchased by Craig Cunningham, another longtime local restauranteur. Later in 2005, Sierra Solitaire set up and wasn’t around for long. The Lodge at Galena followed and was open until 2013.
