July 4th celebrations (and more) at Lake Tahoe

Summertime at Lake Tahoe means much more than long days and bright California sunshine. It’s a time to play outside on the lake, on the trails or on the links. It’s also an ideal time to sample some of the many fun events happening at the Ski Lake Tahoe resorts.

7 Top Hikes at Lake Tahoe

With the opening of Bijou, we’re in full swing (see what I did there?) for Spring golf in Lake Tahoe. There’s added motivation to keep your shoulders loose and relaxed.

Memorial Day at Lake Tahoe

Memorial Day at Lake Tahoe is traditionally considered a precursor to summer – a taste of things to come. This year is no different as many of the Ski Lake Tahoe resorts open for summer operations. Even if you, like me, prefer your ski resorts under a blanket of snow, there are a myriad of different ways to experience your favorite runs in the off-season. Think hiking, mountain biking, or through the window of a tram. Here are a few ways you can sample Tahoe this holiday weekend.

Eat, Play and Celebrate: Labor Day at Lake Tahoe

Labor Day may signify the end of summer for many, but for winter diehards, it’s one more noteworthy milestone toward our favorite time of year. Intead of mourning the changing season, I’m eagerly storing away the white clothes and looking forward to the start of the ski season.

I’m not alone. Savvy snowboarders and skiers know that Labor Day at the Lake Tahoe ski resorts is one great celebration, including tent sales, a slew of fun events and even a few races.

Pumps on Pedals

Mountain biking is my favorite way to pass the time until the snow falls. Despite the many miles on my cross-country bike, I’ve never been on a downhill bike, nor have I ridden at Northstar California’s mountain bike park. I left that to my boyfriend and his group of friends, adrenaline loving guys who had learned to repress their self-preservation instincts and fear of heights, big rocks, and potential injury.
