First Tracks at the Tahoe Cross Country Ski Area

Paul Smith said on November 21st, 2011 filed under: ACTIVITIES, COMMUNITY, LOCAL AREA PHOTOS, LOCAL NEWS, PLACES TO SEE

Actually I think they were the second tracks, but it sure was nice out there.

Today was my first day of skiing at the Nordic Center. The coverage was  a little light, but good enough to make it around the Green Loop. I saw another skier that told me he made it out to Silver. Kevin, at the Nordic Center, said if we get 6 inches out of the next storm he would start grooming. I hope to you see you out there this year.

Stateline Fire Lookout Hike, Brockway

Paul Smith said on October 28th, 2011 filed under: ACTIVITIES, COMMUNITY, LOCAL AREA PHOTOS, PLACES TO SEE

Stateline Fire Lookout is a great hike, if you don’t have a lot of time.Brockway Fire Lookout

To get to the beginning of the trail/road, go up Reservoir Road, which is behind the Tahoe Biltmore, take Lakeview Avenue to the right and watch for Lookout Road that comes down from the left. The hike is really more of a walk, in-that you’re on a paved road.  The walk  takes less than 30 minutes.  If you take the time to enjoy the views and read the placards filled with history and maybe bring a lunch, you could easily spend a  couple hours.  The original lookout tower is no longer standing, but you can get a feel of how it must have been for the person tending the Fire Lookout. From this viewing area you can see from California to Nevada.

Brockway Fire Lookout_1If you do bring a lunch there is a nice picnicking area with tables, trash cans and restrooms. There are also walking paths and benches to enjoy the views.
