It’s all here. The best of nature, the best of human nature. Start with a scenic and environmental wonder: Lake Tahoe. Add world-class sports and recreation. Unique dining, shopping and lodging in distinctive towns and resorts. So much variety, you can fill your days with peak experiences. Or tune it all down; find a cabin in the woods where the quiet is interrupted only by the wind in the trees. You can go as big or as relaxed as you and your crew desire in these mountains. North Lake Tahoe takes the definition of vacation variety to new heights: jaw-dropping scenery, wildlife, alpine forests, state parks, historic estates and modern resorts. Its sweeping, 180-degree arc extends from Incline Village in Nevada all the way south along the California shoreline to Emerald Bay. The diverse towns and resorts all along its shoreline offer myriad opportunities to experience a carefree freedom, one that’s set against one of the world’s largest alpine lakes. North Lake Tahoe is adventure-central, with best-of-class skiing and snowboarding, hiking and mountain biking, fishing, climbing and golf. You’ll also enjoy eclectic shopping, gambling (on the Nevada side), dancing

Each season brings its own spectacular attractions.

Summer in North Lake Tahoe

Visitors have been falling in love with Tahoe summers for a century and a half. Tahoe City was the gateway to Lake Tahoe from the mid-1800s through the early 1900s, the well-to-do staying at the famous Tahoe Tavern resort or departing on steamboats to nearby lodges, marinas and estates. It’s human nature to love Tahoe in summer. To start, practically perfect weather (in every way)—low humidity, sunny days and clear, starry nights. Days are warm but not hot, nights are cool and refreshing. North Tahoe has vast forests, wilderness areas and alpine lakes, with miles of scenic trails between them. Sections of the Tahoe Rim Trail around the North Shore follow crestline, peak-topping routes of 360 degree views. The Flume Trail is one of the mountain biking world’s most famous rides, but it’s just part of the amazing network of single-track trails found here. For long, lift-served downhills, head to Northstar California’s Mountain Bike Park. Prefer a paved route? Go for a relaxed ride on the scenic bike trail that runs along the Truckee River from Squaw Valley to Tahoe City. From there, the trail heads south along the West Shore to Sugar Pine Point State Park. A soon-to-be-opened class 1 bike path will run between Incline Village and Sand Harbor State Park. GoTahoeNorth.com 5


Tahoe’s blue waters offer plenty of activity, but so do Tahoe’s greens. Golf courses include relaxed 9-hole circuits in Kings Beach and Tahoe City and championship courses in Incline Village, Northstar and Squaw Valley. Additional courses in Truckee and nearby Carson Valley feature the designs of world-renowned golf architects. Whether it’s paddling along welcoming stretches of sun-soaked sand, toasting the day at a lakefront restaurant or enjoying an evening stroll under a brilliant, star-filled sky, summer days at North Lake Tahoe are much too special to be missed.

Lake Tahoe is a paradise of paddleboarding, kayaking, sailing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, jet-skiing, fishing and swimming. Marinas rent water equipment, set you skyward on a parasail or launch you on a cruise along the shoreline to Emerald Bay. To hook a huge mackinaw trout, take a fishing charter on a calm morning. Rafting the Truckee River is popular with all ages. Go it alone or with the convenience of one of the rafting companies in Tahoe City.

Winter in North Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe in winter, ringed by snow under a blue sky, is achingly lovely, the contrast made more brilliant by the lake’s deep blue. Spectacular winter weather creates this magic: plentiful sunshine paired with 20 to 30 feet of average annual snowfall. Passion for winter sports runs deep here. Scandinavian prospectors brought skiing to these mountains in the 1850s, conducting America’s first organized ski races. On mountains just north of Tahoe, miners rode what is considered the world’s first ski lift—ore buckets hanging from a cable. The 1931 U.S. National Ski Jumping Championships were held in Tahoe City at the present site of Granlibakken Resort. Downhill ski resorts got their start here in 1939 with the opening of Sugar Bowl. Skiing and other winter sports continued to thrive in North Tahoe, leading to the hosting of the 1960 Winter Olympic Games at Squaw Valley. Twenty-some years later, locals embraced what was the newest winter sport and built the world’s first snowboard half-pipe behind Tahoe City.

GoTahoeNorth.com 9


The Greater North Tahoe area now boasts 11 downhill ski and snowboard resorts and six cross-country ski/ snowshoe areas. What makes all this variety even more intriguing is that each resort has its own distinct character. Live the spirit of adventure and ski or ride multiple North Tahoe resorts; discount tickets are available at Tahoe City and Incline Village Visitor Centers. Go for high-octane fun on a snowmobile tour along a high mountain ridge. Or kick back and keep it simple at a ski-in, ski-out lodge, steps away from the slopes. Tone it down even further and head for a romantic cabin in the woods, snowshoe trails outside. Whatever your chosen activity—or lack of activity—great meals will be waiting close by. Unique and creative restaurants, bars and delis are scattered throughout North Lake Tahoe, many with enchanting lake views.

Or just curl up in front of a fire and save your energy for the new morning and another magical winter day in North Lake Tahoe.

Start your après-ski right at the base of the slopes. To heat up the winter night, head for dancing and live music at Crystal Bay casinos. Or dance with Lady Luck at the gaming tables or slot machines.

The music, theater and festival scene heats up during summer at North Lake Tahoe. A highlight is High Notes, a free concert series featuring rock, blues and jazz acts at scenic venues most every evening of the week. Lovers of classical music flock to Lake Tahoe SummerFest in Incline in early August; in mid-August, they enjoy concerts at various locations, from the West Shore to Truckee, during the Lake Tahoe Summer Music Festival. Crystal Bay Club has two showrooms featuring music and comedy, including jazz and blues headliners all year long. Sand Harbor is the Sierra’s signature outdoor theater, a modern stage in a natural sand amphitheater with stunning lake views. In August, it hosts the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival—the Bard’s plays in rotation with special events and concerts. Journey through history at Vikingsholm Castle in Emerald Bay, Helman-Ehrman Mansion at Sugar Pine Point State Park and Thunderbird Lodge near Incline Village. Tahoe City’s Gatekeepers Museum and Maritime Museum are open throughout the year. Galleries in North Tahoe and Truckee display international and regional artists, with studio tours during summer. To experience the art of science, visit Tahoe Science Center in Incline Village, with interactive displays and 3-D movies that explore this area’s unique and spectacular environment.

Don’t miss dining or cocktails at one of many lakefront or lake view restaurants. In summer, relax on an outdoor deck and enjoy a spectacular sunset.

Human talent and nature’s bounty combine in diverse and delicious ways in North Lake Tahoe: gourmet restaurants to family-value menus to fun brew pubs and bars. Fine dining has a long tradition on these shores, dating back over 100 years to the great resort hotels of Tahoe’s Gilded Age. European chefs were first attracted to this area by the 1960 Winter Olympic Games, and new waves of culinary talent have established restaurants here ever since.

Inspiring Incline Village On Tahoe’s northernmost shore, this town got its name from the “Great Incline of the Sierra Nevada,” a device that carried timber over the mountains to construct the silver mines of Virginia City. The Flume Trail, today a world-renowned mountain bike trail, follows a route initially carved for a v-shaped timber flume.

Diamond Peak ski resort is above the town, a family-friendly spot with stellar beginner programs and panoramic views. A 15-minute drive over the summit is Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe, with long intermediate runs and super-steep, rock-lined chutes. Want to learn more about the Tahoe Sierra? The Tahoe Science Center is part of the UC Davis environmental research facility, with interactive science exhibits and engaging 3-D movies. Fine dining options are sprinkled around town, as are more casual restaurants and bars. During summer months, sip a cocktail on a white sandy beach or on a ridge-top deck overlooking all of Tahoe.

Sand Harbor State Park is one of Tahoe’s scenic jewels. Its stage hosts the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival and music concerts in summer. Stand-up paddling over the clear water and giant granite boulders is utterly unforgettable. Just down the shoreline, Thunderbird Lodge is a reflection in stone and timber of the eccentric millionaire who built it. Take an estate tour to explore its hidden tunnels and mountainside zoo.

Luminous Crystal Bay Located right on the California-Nevada border on North Shore, Crystal Bay has it all: glittering casinos to hikes and nearby beaches. A scenic and relatively short walk leads up to the Stateline Fire Lookout, a 7,077foot point of land with one of greatest 360 degree views in Tahoe. Plaques name the many peaks and tell the history of the surroundings from Mark Twain to lumber barons. Paragliders take off from here into the winds, landing nearby in Kings Beach. Three casinos flank the road passing through Crystal Bay, including Crystal Bay Club North Tahoe’s musiccentral—with the Crown Room and Red Room Cabaret offering world-class rock, blues, jazz, comedy and (yes) dancing practically every night of the week. Looking for slots, gaming tables or sports books? They’re here and at neighboring casinos. Dining choices abound at the casinos and at nearby favorites like Soule Domain, with creative American cuisine in the most romantic of settings. In summer, a fantastic landscape of huge granite boulders and white sand makes the shoreline of Crystal Bay a playground of swimming, sunning, climbing, kayaking and paddleboarding. Search for the huge crystal along the water’s edge that gave this naturally blessed corner of Tahoe its name.

Noble Kings Beach This quintessential beach town is located in the heart of Tahoe’s North Shore, with shops and street-side treasures to explore along its lakeside avenue. The epicenter of activity is the Kings Beach State Recreation Area, once the estate of town founder (and card-shark) Joe King, who won the land where he would later start the town in a poker match. Ever since, this crescent of shoreline has been a safe bet for the millions who have visited. Summertime fun includes weekend craft fairs and free concerts Friday evenings on the beach. There’s golfing at nearby Old Brockway links. Water equipment rentals abound—this is a perfect spot to take up paddleboarding, kayaking, jet skiing, parasailing or tandem paragliding.

Kings Beach is close to three downhill ski resorts and two cross-country areas with additional groomed trails just outside town in the regional park. Snowmobile tours leave from Brockway Summit just up the road. When it’s time to relax, take a stroll along the town’s brand-new sidewalks, stop in at a unique shop or boutique, then sip a coffee on a patio or near the sand. Enjoy a casual meal or savor fine cuisine in one of the town’s many restaurants. GoTahoeNorth.com 27

Vibrant Tahoe Vista / Cool Carnelian Bay Ports of call for Tahoe’s steamships in the early 1900s, Tahoe Vista and Carnelian Bay are today ports of relaxation on this sandy stretch of shoreline. Here you’ll find excellent lodging values, some of them right on the lake, as well as a wide range of dining options.

North Lake Tahoe Regional Park’s 124 acres include picnicking, playing fields and hiking trails as well as sledding and cross-country ski trails. Mountain bike trails provide quick access into the heart of a huge network of single-track and fire roads around and behind 8,420-foot Mt. Watson. Nordic skiing and snowshoeing trails are found at the Regional Park or Tahoe Cross Country resort, just up the road, and several resorts offer downhill skiing are close by. 30 GoTahoeNorth.com

Tahoe Vista’s beaches and shallow waters make it a favorite of swimmers and waders in summer and fall, while those with Fido in tow head for Carnelian Bay’s dog-friendly Patton Beach. Kayaking and paddleboarding are both popular on this long shoreline. Yachts and fishing boats sail in and out of Sierra Boat Company and North Tahoe marinas. In addition to water sports, there’s fine golfing at beautiful Old Brockway Golf Course, the site of the first Bing Crosby Pro-Am tournament (now the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am).

TAHOE CITY GoTahoeNorth.com 31


Terrific Tahoe City Before Tahoe City was Tahoe City, the native Washoe tribesmen called it “Daubey Odu”— roughly translated as “running over.” The name referred to the riches of fish and wild game they found here on their seasonal pilgrimage. The town was established in 1864, at the juncture where the lake spilled into the Truckee River, Tahoe’s only outlet, and quickly became a summer vacation destination. Today, the town “runs over” with energy and high-altitude fun all year-round.

A short stroll through town takes you past unique shops, casual and fine dining restaurants. Gatekeepers Museum has an excellent Native American basket collection. Tahoe Maritime Museum shines with gorgeous wooden boats. Cross historic “Fanny Bridge” over the Truckee headwaters and you’ll see where the bridge got its name: People lean over its rail to see the massive trout trolling the waters below. 32 GoTahoeNorth.com

Tahoe City’s scenic shoreline is packed with year-round activities. In summer, kayakers and paddleboarders put in at either Common’s Beach or Tahoe City Marina. With the Truckee River’s headwaters located directly in Tahoe City, rafters and kayakers launch from the top of the Truckee for a mild whitewater ride down the canyon. Common’s Beach hosts free concerts and evening movies. Snow season brings the Tahoe City Winter Sports Park to the downtown golf course, with a new skating rink, crosscountry skiing trails and snow play. More cross-country skiing is found at nearby Tahoe Cross-Country. Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Homewood ski areas are only 10- to 15-minute drives away.

Wonderful West Shore In 1909, Arthur Jost built a small pier and hotel in a sheltered section of the lake under Ellis Peak. He called his friendly resort “Homewood, and all the name implies.” Today, that spirit of hospitality reigns along 21 miles of tree-lined shore, with bike paths and beaches to enjoy in summer and Homewood Mountain Resort in winter. (A local’s ski secret: The views from these slopes are among the best in the ski world.) Three California State Parks are found along this spectacular stretch. Sugar Pine Point includes both campgrounds and the historic Ehrman Mansion and estate grounds. Nearby, cross-country ski trails from the 1960 Olympics are still groomed during the winter. Open summer months, Bliss State Park is one of Tahoe’s enchanted places, with its whitesand beach, boulders and cliffs. A lakeside trail goes all the way to Emerald Bay State Park, one of the world’s most photographed places. Tour Vikingsholm Castle in summer, or just admire Fannette Island and its stone teahouse. Hiking trailheads can be found up and down the West Shore leading into National Forest lands or Desolation Wilderness. Or take a short hike to a unique view at Eagle Rock.

Majestic Squaw Valley / Alpine Meadows One of the most picturesque valleys in the Sierra Nevada, Squaw Valley is legendary both for its beauty and skiing. Just over the mountain ridge is sister ski resort Alpine Meadows, accessible on the same lift ticket or ski pass. Together, Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows offer 6,000 acres of terrain for all abilities.

Stay slope-side at The Village at Squaw Valley for the ultimate in convenience. This lively European-style village is nestled at the base of ski runs with a variety of shops, galleries, restaurants and activities for the entire family. After a day on the slopes, cozy up at one of the many outdoor firepits. Right at the base of numerous ski lifts, The Village offers events and music year-round. There are also a number of fine lodges and resorts adjacent to The Village at Squaw Valley and across a pristine meadow. A bike trail follows the Truckee River from here to Lake Tahoe, while an aerial tram carries sightseers up 8,200 feet to High Camp and its swimming pools and hiking trails. Golfers will want to test the challenging holes at Squaw Creek Course. 38 GoTahoeNorth.com

ŠSQUAW VALLEY / ALPINE MEADOWS

Now just a short 10-minute drive or shuttle ride apart, the resorts are slated to be connected in the future by a base-to-base gondola. Currently in year six of a $70 million renaissance, Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows has the most modern lift system in America.

Naturally The Village at Northstar

Northstar has long been a star of family vacations, with a self-contained village and everything within walking or ski-lift distance. The ski resort has impeccably groomed trails and some of the region’s top snowmaking capabilities. It features everything from first-timer and beginner terrain to a huge selection of intermediate runs and numerous terrain parks and halfpipes. In summer, the ski lifts serve one of the West’s top mountain bike parks. Down in the valley, swimming pools or leisurely hikes might be more your style. Or tee off on an 18-hole masterpiece through aspen groves and out into Martis Valley. Whatever diversions you choose, service is the hallmark here. It starts with world-class accommodations, both in Northstar Village’s rooms and suites, and mid-mountain at the Ritz Carlton, featuring a world-class spa, fine dining and uncompromised ambience. 40 GoTahoeNorth.com

What was once a logging camp is today an idyllic vacation retreat, home to some of North America’s best familycentric skiing and riding. Boarders and skiers rocket down mile-long runs from the back side of Northstar California’s Mt. Pluto, or carve off-piste turns through stands of lodgepole pines from the top of Sawtooth Ridge. Where loggers built campfires in the 1800s, vacationers now curl up on comfy couches next to fire pits and a skating rink.

Historic Truckee Truckee was named after Pauite chief Tru-ki-zo by the pioneering emigrants he helped guide west. The town got its start with the construction of the Intercontinental Railroad in the 1860s and soon became infamous throughout the Old West. Things got more respectable with the launch of winter sports resorts here in the early 1900s. Today, Truckee maintains its railroad heritage while bursting over with great restaurants, bars, shops and year-round events and activities. There are multiple lakes close to Truckee, with a spot on Donner Lake’s beaches the most coveted. The Truckee River runs through town, and more fish are biting on the many tributaries in mountains to the north. Likewise, there is golf in every direction—three public courses and four private links are in Truckee or minutes away. The town is surrounded by four major and three smaller ski resorts, plus three cross-country ski areas.

After filling your days with fun and activity, take an evening stroll through Truckee’s downtown and its vintage buildings, shops and restaurants; or explore the newer sections of this booming burg. 42 GoTahoeNorth.com

Site of an historic railroad engineering feat, this is a scenic land of snow-capped peaks, mountain lakes and hiking and skiing trails. In the 1860s, hundreds of workers tunneled through the solid granite of Donner Summit, often by hand, to build America’s first Intercontinental Railway. Old Highway 40 has views of the now-abandoned train tunnels and roughly follows the route taken by early settlers headed for the Pacific. Backdrop for many movies (most recently “Her”), Rainbow Bridge is a highlight of the drive. Nearby granite cliffs are well-known in rock-climbing circles. Lodges and hostels dot the area. Near the summit, Sugar Bowl is California’s historic ski resort. Opened in 1939, it is a winter sports mecca with a charming lodge and excellent cross-country skiing. Cozy up to the bar where Hollywood royalty Errol Flynn and Charlie Chaplin tipped a few. Boreal Mountain Resort has epic half-pipes, tubing and night skiing. Adjacent Woodward Tahoe is a trampoline and foam pit fun spot. Soda Springs is a small, value-oriented family ski area and tubing hill. In summer, hike north and south on the Pacific Crest Trail or to a myriad of lakes and small reservoirs. The Yuba River travels through pools and waterfalls on its descent toward the Pacific Ocean. These mountains reward exploration with fantastic discoveries, any time of year. 44 GoTahoeNorth.com
