With several feet of snow blanketing the Sierra, it just makes the Christmas season even more spectacular throughout the High Sierra.
No matter what your plans may be through the end of the year, and into 2020, there will be plenty of snow on the ground to take that magical “walk in the winter wonderland,” and then some.
It’s the time of the year when our communities around Truckee/Tahoe put on their own magical touch to ensure you and yours will have a holiday to remember for years to come.
To help you make your list and check it twice, we’ve selected some of our favorite things to do to help you finish your holiday planning and set aside time to enjoy our hometown this season.
And if you ever want more ideas on what to do throughout the Truckee and Lake Tahoe region, never hesitate to come by Elder Group Tahoe Real Estate office in Truckee, CA or contact us at any time!
From hand-made artistry, old-fashioned toys from your yesteryear memories, to endless options to decorate your mountain home, we know you will find ‘just that perfect gift’ for the loved ones on your list – and perhaps you, too!
With all there is to do and see throughout our Winter Wonderland, perhaps it’s time for YOU to enjoy some time out of the kitchen this season. The Chefs at Kitchen Collab are offering you the opportunity to kick back and relax as they plan, prepare, and serve your family with some absolutely delicious options for all to enjoy.
Invited to the neighbors and need to bring a side-dish or hors d’oeuvre? Pick up the phone and call the pros at Kitchen Collab to handle the request on your behalf! They have dishes by Kitchen Collab Members MOGROG Rotisserie, Local Chef Productions, Ron Allen Catering, Tahoe Fuller’s and Platterfare.
Make Them Cozy, Again!
Here’s a fun and festive way to surprise your friend or loved one.
