Heavenly Ski Resort has been working hard to open its runs, and we’re thrilled to announce that Stagecoach is now open! If you’d like to plan a quick ski trip, we currently have some rental availability at both our Eagles’ Nest and Tahoe Village locations. Contact our Reservations Department for more information. As always, our members get priority and the lowest rates!
If you love to ski, snowboard, snowshoe or just sit by the fire and gaze at the winter wonderland outside your window, you’ll be happy to know that snow is falling in Tahoe! Come visit during this magical time of year, but make sure that you’re in a safe and dependable vehicle, since winter driving can be challenging. A 4-wheel drive car is the best option for most situations (if the weather is any worse than that, we recommend staying by the fire with a warm drink!).
Looking for an easy (and affordable) way to explore Tahoe this fall? Check out LimeBike, a bike sharing program that will be available through the end of October (weather permitting). LimeBikes are currently positioned from Stateline to the Y, and are powered by a free smartphone app. Using the app, customers can scan a bike (or located one using its GPS) and release its lock. Using a credit or debit card through the app, ride credits can be purchased for $1 per 30 minutes. When you’re finished with the bike, just leave it wherever you are!
Bikes are a great way to get out of your car and really see the area, and LimeBike makes it convenient and affordable. Find more information (and the app) here, then start exploring!
Tahoe heats up during the summer, but did you know that the fall is one of the loveliest times to visit? Although it’s considered the off-season, this time of year offers mild weather and smaller crowds. Here are a few events that are particularly popular:
Oktoberfest can be found various places and dates from late September through October. Visit Squaw Valley on September 23rd or Camp Richardson on October 7th and 8th.
The Kokanee Salmon Festival at Taylor Creek celebrates the fall migration of the Kokanee salmon. This free family event is held October 7th and 8th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Join in a salmon feed or perhaps a 5k, 10k or 1/2 marathon.
Apple Hill is open year-round but is always fun during autumn. Pick apples, sample apple ciders and apple pies, visit a winery and enjoy the fall colors!
