Trail running season in Lake Tahoe

As the snow melts off the trails, revealing Tahoe's soft carpet of sandy soil and pine needles, trail runners rejoice. With impossibly blue skies, mild summertime temperatures, breathtaking views around every corner, and miles and miles of perfectly graded backcountry trails, Lake Tahoe is a trail runner's paradise. 

At 22 miles long and 12 miles wide, Lake Tahoe sits in a basin carved by glaciers. Ringing the basin are some of the most scenic miles of singletrack in North America - most of it with a view of the lake itself. The views make the miles go by, as a recent article in Condé Nast Traveler highlighting Lake Tahoe trail runs points out.

Tahoe trail runners love the easy access to great trails - you feel like you are 10 miles out of town after a short jaunt from the trailhead - as well as the terrain and the weather. Casual and serious runners alike find it easy to motivate themselves to get out on the trail, even while they are on vacation. Plus, there's nothing better than a day relaxing on the beach after a great run.

One of the oldest and most famous endurance trail runs, the Western States Endurance Run, begins right here in Squaw Valley. Looking for something a little shorter than 100.2 miles? Check out the Tahoe Trail Running Series that takes place from early June through October at locations all around Lake Tahoe.

Or simply ask the team at Resort at Squaw Creek how to get out on the trails. We have several passionate runners on staff who would be happy to give you tips on how to experience Tahoe's best trail runs.

Nightlife in Lake Tahoe

Wondering what to do after the sun goes down in Lake Tahoe? Options are as plentiful as the stars in the night sky.

Known for having an over-abundance of outdoor activities in both summer and winter, Lake Tahoe is a recreational mecca for visitors of all ages. From the beach and boating June through September, to the incredible skiing, snowboarding, and winter fun December through April, not to mention hiking and mountain biking perfection in September and October, there is no shortage of ways to fill your days on a trip to Lake Tahoe.

But what do you do when the sun goes down? Not to worry! There are plenty of nightlife options to keep you busy when the stars come out.

A veritable army of local bars and restaurants await in Tahoe City, Squaw Valley, and Truckee. You can find something that suits just about any taste or any atmosphere. From fine dining, an urban-feel, and high-end cocktails, to local hangout, craft beers, and simple food, North Lake Tahoe has it all.

Families will find an abundance of casual, kid-friendly dinner spots around Squaw Valley and Truckee, while an awesome playground on the shore of Lake Tahoe in Tahoe City is a great before-dinner activity to work out that last pint of energy.

And for the late-night crowd, there is live music all over town. From headliners to local acts, the venues in North Lake Tahoe host a lively music scene that can keep you busy every night of the week.

And if you want to keep it uber-local during your stay at Resort at Squaw Creek, stick to the Squaw Village, rated the #3 on USA Today's list of Top 10 Ski Resorts for Nightlife.
