    Ski down the perfect powder in Truckee

    From trail-stop to rail-stop to outdoor haven, Truckee today is no longer a stopover: it's a destination in itself. Pretty in the summer and bustling in the winter with majestic snowstorms, Truckee vacation rentals are dedicated to winter fun. A handful of ski resorts gift deep, fresh powder daily, perfect for carving out those shapes. There's also the faded glory of an Old West downtown, now buzzing with a boutique vibe, and a playground of lakes, mountains, rivers, and forests to delight thrill-junkies and nature-buffs alike. Welcome to "Lake Tahoe without the price tag."

    Truckee—keeping active come sun or snow

    The list of things to do here is impressive with Truckee providing opportunities for never-ending activity. Snowy fun naturally tops them all, with downhill and cross-country resorts on offer for snowboarding and skiing to your heart’s content. Nearby, beautiful Lake Donner acts as a summer-time hub where you can take a kayak onto its waters, flick out a teasing fly-line, or just dig your heels into its many sandy beaches. And, once the sun slides down behind the Sierra Nevada, gaze skywards as a silvery band of stars unfurls over your Truckee mountain cabin.

    Old West lives on in Truckee

    For most of its history, the first view of Truckee was from a carriage window. Walk around Historic Downtown and you'll see that same Old West streetscape today. A darker side to Truckee's history is unearthed at the Donner Memorial State Park with its museum recounting how a band of 19th century settlers met a very grizzly end. More bad-time tales of yore can be heard at the Old Truckee Jail Museum. Read about ‘Machine Gun’ Kelly, ‘Baby Face’ Nelson and ‘Ma’ Spinelli, who were all once residents behind its bars.

    Riding Truckee's seasonal rollercoaster

    Mountain-bound Truckee happily stays pleasant in summer. Temperatures amble around 75 F with plenty of dry, sunny weather but it's the promise of a winter wonderland that most visitors look forward to. If you're a snow bunny, make sure to choose a cozy resort cabin from the many Truckee vacation rentals available. It's not unknown for three feet of the white stuff to be thrown from the sky in just one day, so bring your snow shoes! This fresh, white, powdery snow makes Truckee a center for all kinds of winter sports.

    A pause for nature in Truckee

    The ragged, rugged Sierra Nevada mountains take a pause in Truckee, creating a natural stopping-off point for carriages, trains, and cars alike. Lake Donner anchors the scene with its mirrored beauty, but there are many more ice-blue lakes and creeks scattered among its surrounding woods. Truckee also acts as a teaser for the legendary panorama that is Lake Tahoe. The beauty of booking one of the Truckee vacation rentals though, is that you can dip one toe into Tahoe while still keeping the other foot firmly grounded in snow.
