Skiing in July? For the first time in history, Squaw Valley, site of the Winter Olympic Games in 1960, is extending its ski season through July 4th weekend. The Lake Tahoe alpine ski resort saw its snowiest season on record, reporting 700 inches of snow (almost 300% more snow than the resort usually sees). These conditions have created ideal conditions for skiing or boarding – even in July. Forget the traditional après ski, hit the slopes and head over to Lake Tahoe for a dip and some barbecue.
And only 45 minutes from the mountain lies Reno Tahoe, offering the perfect blend of art, culture and adventure for a weekend summer getaway. The up-and-coming Reno Tahoe Midtown District has bene completely transformed over the last few years and is home to vibrant street art, endless breweries, brunch spots and gastropubs, the winding Truckee River and Nevada Museum of Art – culminating into the perfect vacation spot for adventurers and hipsters alike.
Area visitors may also stop by the Guinness Book of World Records World’s Largest Rock Climbing Wall located in the Whitney Peak Hotel, whitewater raft down the Truckee River, get a preview of Burning Man art at a local art warehouse and hit the slopes – all in one weekend this summer.
