Sledding And Tubing Fun

February 2, 2010

Want to take the kids for some sledding and tubing adventures? Well, there are certainly plenty of choices around with steep enough hills to have some thrills and spills.

First, a couple of good free spots:

1. At Spooner Junction, where US 50 and Hwy 28 intersect, there is a great sledding hill with ample free parking. We’ve tried this one personally and it’s great.

2. Just past Camp Richardson, adjacent to Fallen Leaf Lake Road, there are some good spots. You can see them from Hwy 89. Parking may be a little trickier here.

If you don’t mind paying:

Hansen’s Resort

Echo Summit Snow Park
Requires payment for a parking permit. This is at the site of a former ski resort so there are a variety of challenges for sledding and tubing.

Also, most of the ski resorts now offer areas for sledding and tubing so it would be a good idea to check them out.

Forever Holiday

January 2, 2010

After celebration of the New Year, and Christmas the week before that, many think it’s all over for a year or at least until July 4th rolls around. This, however, is not so.

You’ve been up here enough to realize Lake Tahoe is not just another place. It’s special. It has scenic qualities that are not duplicated anywhere else in the world. Add to that the crystal clear water of the lake and the crisp, clean mountain air and one might think it just can’t get any better…but there’s more.

When you factor in year around recreation of every imaginable kind and stir in 24 hour gambling and entertainment the end result is one huge, non-stop celebration.

Winter has only just gotten started. It can only get better. Gather up the family and c’mon up here and enjoy the fun. There is always something exciting to do.
