Coming to North Lake Tahoe for a "race-cation"

Yes, North Lake Tahoe is one of Northern California's best beach destinations in summertime. But becoming even more popular for individuals and groups of friends are weekend "race-cations" focused on the big event weekends like IRONMAN and the USA Cycling Championships.

Amateur athletes have always traveled to compete in events, and with North Lake Tahoe hosting more of them each summer, Resort at Squaw Creek is becoming a second home for athletes in training. 

The USA Cycling National Championships roll into town June 24 - 28, 2015. Individual time trials, tandem time trials, a criterium, and road races will be held all over the region during the course of the five day event. Cyclists will not only be in town for race weekend, but many will come for training weekends to get familiar with the destination and the altitude. At over 6,000 feet above sea level, Lake Tahoe presents a unique challenge to athletes from other parts of the country. 

Considered one of the toughest events on the circuit, IRONMAN Lake Tahoe tests the limits of every athlete who participates. With a swim, bike, and run, IRONMAN Lake Tahoe touches every part of the destination. The course moves through some of the most gorgeous scenery in Northern California. Training weekends are a big part of success in IRONMAN, because if the scenery doesn't take your breathe away, the altitude will.

Athletes are always welcome to stay at Resort at Squaw Creek - a perfect home base from which to train in the area. Miles of road cycling and running trails start right from our door, and Lake Tahoe is a short drive (or bike/run) for open water swim practices. On-site restaurants and suites with kitchens mean you don't need to over-complicate your weekend with reservations or finding a place to eat on Yelp. And the full service Spa at Squaw Creek is the ultimate place to recover from your workouts. 

Plus, we offer a full compliment of Four Diamond amentities to keep your friends and family entertained while you train. They'll be waiting for you at the finish line.

Trail Running season is underway in North Lake Tahoe

With spring already here, and summer close behind, the trail running season in Lake Tahoe is already well underway. 

Spring and summer races will be here before you know it. Add a little high altitude training to your workout to get a leg up on your competitors - or just get your heart racing a little faster.

The trails that surround Resort at Squaw Creek are legendary among trail runners and ultra runners alike - the Western States trail leaves practically from our doorstep. The paved Truckee River trail is another you can jump on straight from the resort - a level 8 miles to Tahoe City along the river. Other gorgeous trails, like the Rubicon trail along Lake Tahoe to Emerald Bay, or the Burton Creek trail are close by.

Competitive runners should check out the Tahoe Trail Running series. With 11 events that span early June through late September, the series offers runs from 5k to 50k. All levels of athletes are welcome. 

And when you're back from your run, check out the Sports Massage at Spa at Squaw Creek - designed to help flush impurities, stretch tight muscles and aid in speedy recoveries. Excellent right before or after exercise.

4 Things To Do in Tahoe this spring (that all start with the letter B)

Happy Spring! In honor of the Equinox today, we're posting four of our favorite things to do in spring that begin with the letter B. Time to get outside! 

Bocce. Gather the troops for a little friendly competition and reserve a bocce court at the Truckee River Winery. Pick up a picnic in Sweet Potatoes Deli and pair it with a bottle of wine or a glass of beer at the winery. 

Bike Rides. Grab a bike from our brand new fleet of Giant Bikes and spend an afternoon cruising the bike path along the Truckee River to Lake Tahoe.

Beaches. The sandy shores and clear blue waters of Lake Tahoe, surrounded by the peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, provide a unique and breathtaking beach experience in any season. Our favorites are Sand Harbor, Moon Doons, and Commons Beach (which also has an excellent playground).  

Beer. Enjoy that California sunshine a little more with a craft beer. North Lake Tahoe has seen several craft breweries spring up in the last few years.
