This is one of the final weekends for resort skiing in the Tahoe area with Heavenly, Kirkwood and Northstar Resorts closing on Sunday April 19th, and Squaw Valley to follow on Sunday, April 26. The warm winter has brought an early spring and with that an early open for Tahoe’s golf season. Those of us who live here are already out enjoying the longer days and endless options of outdoor recreation in the area.
The first golf course to open in the North Lake Tahoe area will be Old Greenwood on May 1st, followed by Lahontan on May 8th, Gray’s Crossing on May 15th, and Martis Camp on May 16th. Some smaller courses are already open such as Old Brockway, Ponderosa, and Tahoe City.
One of my favorite summer hangouts is PJ’s Bar and Grill at Gray’s Crossing which will be opening on May 7th. The popular Gray’s Crossing Summer Concert Series at PJ’s Restaurant starts on June 16th. Can’t wait for another epic Tahoe summer!
Earth Day is officially Wednesday, April 22nd this year, but The Tahoe Truckee Earth Day Festival will be held at Squaw Valley on Saturday, April 18th. The event is put on as a volunteer run, non-profit festival to recognize, celebrate and promote the region’s unique beauty.

Year after year this educational experience has been a hit for all ages. With live music, kids’ activities, art, raffle with exciting prizes and everyone’s favorite, a “Trashion show.” See the works of art as individuals create fashion out of “trash.”
Enjoy the last weekend of spring skiing at Squaw Valley in the morning and celebrate Mother Earth in the afternoon. With the peaks of Squaw Valley in the background, it’s easy to appreciate what nature has blessed us with here in Tahoe.
See you there!
