The snow is starting to melt in the Tahoe Sierra, and we can finally emerge from our Mother Nature-made igloos and get back out into the great outdoors. So, between free swing dancing lessons, Mother’s Day brunch, and golf course openings in Incline Village, it’s time to trade in the ski pants for collared shirts and start enjoying the sunshine.
May 2- Country Swing Dancing Night at Mountain Workspace
To kick off a summer of country music, consider picking up some swing dancing tips with your sweetie at Mountain Workspace, the new co-working space in Incline Village. This community event is free to the public, and you can bring your own beer and food if desired (an upstairs kitchen is available). Make some friends and pick up some moves at this no-cost Thursday evening event from 6:30-8:30pm. Mountain Workspace is located right on Lake Tahoe Boulevard in the heart of Incline Village.

TBA- Mountain Course and Championship Course Openings
The Incline Village Golf Courses haven’t announced their exact Mountain Course and Championship Course openings yet, but if the weather stays nice then they’ll be on track to open in May. Generally, the par-3 executive Mountain Course tucked into the trees opens sometime around May 8, whereas the famed Champ Course opens in the third or fourth week of the month.

Climb Aboard the Stellar Tahoe
Itching to get out on the lake but don’t have a boat? No problem, the family-owned private boat charter company Stellar Tahoe has you covered. Growing up on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe, Matt Lund has been around boats his whole life and now offers locals and guests a one-of-a-kind experience aboard his 35-ft. Formula luxury yacht. Based out of Carnelian Bay, small groups of families and friends can swim, bar hop, cruise, and have fun in a safe, comfortable environment, while leaving the driving to Lund and experiencing Tahoe like never before.

May 17- The Grille at the Chateau Opens
Even if you’re not a golfer, The Grille at the Chateau is a nice place to go for lunch, especially on a warm summer day when you can sit outside overlooking the greens and Lake Tahoe. Enjoy a lunch of ahi poketini or Wild Bill’s popular fish tacos from 11am-3pm or an after-golfing cocktail during Happy Hour from 3-7pm.
