North Lake Tahoe Correspondence – April 2018

Easter happens to fall on April Fools’ Day this year,  but all of the fun events planned in North Lake is no joke. Now that you’ve had a chance to dig yourself out of the multiple feet of snow that Mother Nature dumped on us in Miracle March, check out these fun upcoming events: Turn your Easter egg treasure hunt into a skiing extravaganza at Diamond Peak on April 1.

Why Not Take that Golf Vacation in Pahrump? Imagine getting out of your hotel room and leisurely driving down the road to play some golf in Pahrump. Out here, there is no traffic and maybe one major traffic light on your way. Your tee time is at 9 a.m., so you have time to get a cup of coffee at the local coffee shop or even eat breakfast at Mom's Diner before you take in 18 challenging holes. Well, you ...

South Lake Tahoe Correspondence – April 2018

Lake Tahoe in all its splendor is wonderful to gaze upon from any vantage point, and even the small peek-a-boo views can provide a sense of awe.  But seeing the lake from atop an ancient volcano is something to write home to mama about.  Cave Rock is likely the most identifiable landmark on the lake, it can be seen from just about anywhere around Tahoe, and if you’re headed to South Lake from Reno or Carson City, you drive right ...

The month kicks off with egg hunts and Easter brunches on April 1st (but it's anybody's guess what the weather will be like since Mother Nature dumped a lot of snow during "Miracle March"). Many churches are holding special Easter services, but places like Red Hawk Golf and Resort and the Nugget Casino Resort are also featuring special Easter events. Red Hawk Golf and Resort is holding an Easter Brunch buffet from 9am-2pm, a giant Easter Egg Hunt starting at 9:30am, ...

On the morning of February 2nd last month, “Punxsutawney Phil,” the legendary weather predicting groundhog saw his shadow.  This, according to folklore, means we’ll have 6 more weeks of winter.  However, here in Carson Valley, my pet guinea pig “Leo” did not see his shadow the morning of February 2nd. To us that means spring is right around the corner! So my thoughts naturally drifted towards all of the fun ways to really get out and see Carson Valley, as ...

Pahrump's Granddad of Festivals: a long-standing tradition The one thing I loved about the town of Pahrump is that  there always seems to be something going on, especially when the temperatures come down in September. When the cooler weather comes, the town becomes like an ant hill and there is buzz of activity. Whether it’s the farmers market on Saturday, in the middle of the town at Draft Picks sports bar or some kind of rodeo at the McCullough Arena ...

In terms of snowfall, this winter has been rather lackluster, compared to a year ago when the Lake Tahoe basin was buried in snow well into spring. Maybe we’ll receive a good old-fashioned “March Miracle” to rejuvenate the snow pack and keep the skiers and boarders happy.  Nevertheless, the lack of snow hasn’t actually been a damper on activities at South Lake Tahoe. If you look on the bright side, the hiking and biking trails were able to stay open, and ...

Carson Valley legend “Snowshoe” Thompson Looking up at Jobs Peak, in all of its snow-capped glory, from the floor of Carson Valley, I’m thinking that I cannot be the only one who is happy to see snow.  The Sierra resorts now have a steady business with skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, and sledding.  Here in Carson Valley, we can also enjoy snowshoeing and cross country skiing when we have enough snow. Actually, Carson Valley is legendary for “snowshoeing”.  Yes, legendary, thanks to ...
