The original Truckee Tahoe Airport building was demolished in April and the new one is up and running.
Along with a fantastic view of the runways, the new building also includes the Runway Cafe , a comfortable pilots lounge, and much more. Be sure to check it out. July 7th, 2012 the airport is having a “Airfair and Family Festival”. This will be a great time to come out and see whats new. Have you seen the new building? Please comment below.
Be sure to make it out to the Billy Dutton Uphill Race this April 15th. For details on the race click here. It is always a great time, whether you are participating or just watching.

Still no snow at the Tahoe Cross Country Ski Area.
Due to the fact that we are still waiting for snow, I took a hike starting at the Tahoe Cross Country Ski Area.
It’s amazing what you can see in a short two hour hike.
With the change of address for the Truckee Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Office, came a change of Soles4Souls Box Location. The new address is 10800 Donner Pass Rd. Downtown Historic Truckee
If this is the first time you have read my post on Soles4Souls here is a little background about this organization.
Soles4Souls collects new shoes to give relief to the victims of abject suffering and collects used shoes to support micro-business efforts to eradicate poverty. Soles4Souls’ other two divisions, Clothes4Souls and Hope4Souls, provide the same relief and support through clothing and other necessities.
