A Local’s Guide to Spring in Tahoe

Spring is in the air and we think it’s one of the best times to escape to Tahoe and take advantage of activities, without all of the crowds. Check out what’s going on at the hotel and Tahoe South:

What’s New at the Resort
We’ve got an incredible April rate that is running now thru April 30, 2015. Just $99/night for any night of the week! As always, our rates includes our extra roomy 2-room suites and full hot breakfast each morning. You must use promotion code APR15 when booking online to secure this rate. And don’t delay. There is limited availability, especially on Saturdays.

Echo Special
Echo, inside Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel, is running a 2 for 1 entree special on our Adventure Menu (excluding salads) every Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday through May 17, 2015. That means you get to try our fresh, Chef-inspired menu for up to 50% off your entree price! That’s just yummy all the way around. Feel free to stop on in for lunch or dinner, or call for reservations: 530.543.2140.

Around the Lake

Kayaking: Enjoy a day out on the lake kayaking in peace! The boats, crowds, and wind that usually accompany the summer season are still weeks away. Spring is one of the best times to enjoy calm waters, deserted beaches, and feel like you have the lake to yourself! Our Bellman Murray’s favorite spots are Baldwin Beach and Sand Harbor. Visit our MyTahoe Kayaking page to read more about Murray’s recommendations.

Golfing: It’s time to get back out and hit the links! Most Tahoe golf courses start to open for the season in mid-May (weather depending), but the courses in nearby Carson Valley are open year-round! Enjoy discounted rates and a wider availability of tee-times by golfing outside of the summer peak season. Our General Manager, John Steinbach’s favorite courses include Edgewood Tahoe, Genoa Lakes, and Carson Valley. Visit our MyTahoe Golfing page to read more about John’s recommendations.

Fly Fishing: Spring is a great time to enjoy some time fly-fishing! With lots of area streams and rivers flowing with the snowmelt, there are plenty of locations to enjoy. Our Concierge Robert Martires’ favorite spots are the East Walker, East Carson, and Truckee Rivers. Visit our MyTahoe Fly Fishing page to read more about Robert’s recommendations.

Sightseeing & Shopping: Popular area spots like Emerald Bay can be overwhelming with the number of visitors in the peak seasons. This time of year is the perfect time to explore these destinations, without fighting for a parking spot. It’s also a great time to enjoy some shopping, as many stores feature “end of season” sales as they get ready for the summer inventory. Our Director of Group Services Tiffany Zabaglo’s favorite spots for shopping include the Heavenly Village, the Village Center, and the shops at Ski Run Marina. Visit our MyTahoe Shopping page to read more about Tiffany’s recommendations.
