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.

Lake Tahoe spa offers ultimate in Spring rejuvination

With spring in the air, California spas are rolling out treatments to help you make the transition to sunshine and warm temps. Spa at Squaw Creek, a spa in Lake Tahoe, is offering the ultimate spring rejuvination treatment for your skin.

Spring cleaning, detoxifying internal cleanses, an abundance of seasonal fruits and veggies . . . there are so many ways we help our bodies spring forward when the clocks change.

The Detoxifying Salt Glow at Spa at Squaw Creek can help you bring in the spring with a pampering body treatment that will wash away winter's dull dry skin and leave you glowing.  

An exuberating mineral scrub blended with herbal extracts and aromatic essential oils exfoliates and awakens your healthier skin. The exfoliation is followed by a full body massage using a detoxifying aromatherapy massage oil mixed with body purifier bath salts. The oil and salt combination is focused on detoxification for spring renewal and seasonal therapeutic benefits.

Benefits of this type of treatment are myriad. Mineral scrubs have been used in California luxury spas for years to cleanse and buff the skin. The skin naturally responds to the deep cleansing by regenerating itself creating a healthy, fresh and vibrant glow. When mineral and sea salts are combined with herbal extracts and essential oils and massaged into the skin, they not only exfoliate and condition the skin, but also assist the body’s circulation and lymph flow.

Book your treatment before June 19, and save 20% on any single treatment, or 30% on any two treatments. Make your appointment for the Detoxifying Salt Glow today either online or by calling 530.583.6300.
