Serving as the Winter Wonderland of California, Lake Tahoe offers several outdoor activities for people of all ages. Whether you are travelling with a couple of your close buddies, looking for a romantic getaway or taking the kids on a snowy escapade, the snow covered Sierras and stunning blue lake will serve as the landscape you need for your winter adventures.

  • Skiing/Snowboarding- With 7 premier ski resorts close by, you’ll be sure to find the terrain for your skill level.
  • Ice Skating/Tubing – a seasonal ice skating rink is installed at Heavenly Village and almost every ski resort has a tubing option for the kids who are looking for a quick thrill on the mountain.
  • Snowmobiling– if you’re looking for a unique way to experience the Sierras, this is the adventure for you. Several tour companies in the area will give you access to exciting trails that are easy to navigate for the whole family.
  • Photography Tours- This is the perfect activity to feed your creativity. Several tours offer transportation to the most beautiful “secret” spots around the lake. A real treat for all photographers and nature lovers.

Fall Color Update #4

There are still a few spots of color around but mostly the trees are past their prime for this year.

A notable exception is the grove of Aspens located at Bourne Curve just west of our office at the Pine Cone Resort on US 50.  They are currently at their peak but that could end soon due to a weather system that is forecast to arrive Saturday afternoon.

This will be the final update on fall colors for this year.

Over in Hope Valley on Hwy 88 the Aspens around Sorensen’s Resort are at their peak.  It’s an incredible sight.  Best we’ve seen in several years.  On further west, all the way to the Red Lake turnoff, there are additional groves sporting fantastic variations of yellow, gold, orange, and red.

Up here at the lake the trees over around Taylor Creek and Spring Creek are looking fine.

Just a short distance from the Pine Cone Resort there is a spot on US 50 that the locals call Bourne Curve.  On both sides of the road are groves of Aspens and at this time they are really beginning to explode in color.

You gotta see it to believe it.

The annual Kokanee Salmon Festival is the weekend of October 2nd and 3rd.  Click Here for more information.

We just got back from a preview look over at Taylor Creek Visitor Center.  The creek is thick with beautiful salmon.  Easy to see in the crystal clear water.

Come on up and have a look.  It’s a sight like no other.

Note:  The link above is often quite slow in opening so be patient.  It’s well worth the wait.

Just a short note here.  As we predicted yesterday there are no colorful leaves yet in Hope Valley or elsewhere nearby.

Below is a link to photographer Carol Leigh’s fall color  web page.  She keeps it updated with reports sent in by readers.  I recommend that you check it regularly.

Well folks, not much to report yet.  Although there are small spots of color the trees around the Tahoe region are still mostly green.  We’ll try and take a look in the next day or two over in nearby Hope Valley but it’s unlikely that much is happening yet.

The reports we’ve seen indicate most of the colors are far south of us at this time.  Mostly in the Bishop area.  If you’re going to be in that location during the next week or so you should check out Rock Creek, Bishop Creek, and Lake Sabrina.

We’ll post an update when we have more information.
