Wide variety of ski resorts: beginner, intermediate, expert mountains all within an 8 mile range. Take a day off to rest and enjoy a shopping spree in Downtown Truckee's Historic area, a drive over to
Lake Tahoe to walk the beach and/or having lunch or dinner. Or, take the day off for a drive around the lake. Check out Donner Lake as well and the Donner Party Museum there. Our children and grandchildren enjoy just staying home for a day and sled on the property or on our gradual downslope of the private road out front! In summer, the area is rich with beautiful hiking trails, camping and our home has it's own firepit at the end of the meadow for bonfire seating for stories, marshmallow toasting and warm conversation.
