Memorial Day Weekend in Lake Tahoe marks the start of tourist season and a lot to see and do on the North Shore. Now that the snow is melted, you can go hiking, biking, dining, and get out on the lake.
Along with our Tahoe outdoor adventure staples, here are some events to officially usher you into summer:
June 2- Boreal Mountain Resort Summer Shred
If you want to welcome in summer but you’re not ready to put away your snow skis or snowboard, then the Boreal Summer Shred is your chance to get out there one last time before all of the white stuff is completely gone. Access a terrain park off of the Castle Peak chairlift while listening to a DJ spin tunes all day, enjoy a beer garden in the snow, and use your lift ticket to play around in the Woodward facility!

June 5 — Ladies Chip & Sip Golf Clinic at the Mountain Course
However, if you are done with the snow, then keep in mind that all of the golf courses around the lake are now open. The Mountain Golf Course in Incline Village is celebrating its 50th anniversary this summer and will be offering their fun weekly events such as Nine and Wine, Sunday Family Fun Days, and Incline Village/Crystal Bay Community Appreciation Days in mid-June.
To celebrate Women’s Golf Day, the Mountain Course is hosting a free Ladies Chip & Sip Golf Clinic on June 5. This event will feature a 1-hour chipping clinic from 5:30-6:30pm followed by a happy hour mixer from 6:30-7:30pm with a golf and active wear fashion show, raffle prizes, and drink specials. So if you want to get better at golfing with your fellow ladies up in beautiful Lake Tahoe, this is an event not to miss!

June 9 — 20th Annual Fur Ball at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe
For the 20th anniversary of Pet Network’s popular Fur Ball event, the nonprofit organization is asking attendees to step back in time to the Roaring ‘20s and enjoy lively jazz while supporting a great cause (helping to find Lake Tahoe’s loveable pets good, permanent homes). So if you’re ready to shake a tail feather dressed in your flapper best, then buy tickets today at petnetwork.org.

Open Every Day from 5:30-9:30pm — Bacchi’s in Tahoe City
I’ve lived in Lake Tahoe for 10 years and have always wanted to eat at Bacchi’s — North Lake Tahoe’s oldest restaurant. I finally got my chance and recently enjoyed a family-style meal and drinks in a place that hasn’t changed much in the last eight decades.
Established in 1932, this authentic Italian restaurant has served the likes of Lucille Ball, Peter Graves, Mama Cass, Al Pacino, and Tom Selleck. Still maintaining its old-school charm, going out to dinner at Bacchi’s is an event and will leave you stuffed and happy.
I had the veal piccante, and it came with homemade minestrone soup, salad with homemade vinaigrette and a side of homemade raviolis. Even though we were too stuffed to finish our meal, we splurged and got the pistachio and cherry flavored Spumoni ice cream.
This place has so much history and style to it, I can’t wait to go back.
