Happy Memorial Weekend! We could not be happier to share all this great news that you can use throughout the balance of the spring and into the summer months ahead.
Right here in Truckee-Tahoe our businesses and residents are elated to return to a typical sunny, fun-filled and active life.
We are headed to Northstar’s Bike Park and then plan to join our friends out on the trails to take in some of the fun runs that Big Blue Adventure has on tap. And just after the 4th of July, we will have our picnic basket in hand to enjoy the return of the Music in the Park at Tahoe Donner.
On behalf of Elder Group Tahoe Real Estate, we welcome you to come enjoy the lifestyle of mountain living in Truckee-Tahoe with us!
OUR MOUNTAIN BIKING MECCA IS READY FOR YOU!
Ask any fan of mountain biking where the best place to live may be and they will probably tell you: Truckee-Tahoe. There are more trails than anyone can take in all summer long just outside your backdoor! AllTrails.com has an excellent list of places to park and partake in some of the most scenic trails in the USA.
As their website notes: “Explore the most popular mountain biking trails near Truckee with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.”
No need to wait to get ready for some of the best mountain biking in the West. Go on over to Northstar or go online now to get your Northstar Bike Park Season Pass. As the region’s only lift-serviced Mountain Bike Park, you can spend endless days playing in the dirt on what seems to be endless trails for the novice to the most advanced.
What’s cool about Northstar’s impressive operation is that you can check the conditions and find out what trails are open or closed, just like you can during the winter months. We suggest you bookmark this link that offers their daily “Summer Terrain Status” all season long.
Thanks to the volunteers of “Biking for a Better World,” there is another superior option to test your two-wheel talents. As their website notes: “The Park has the sweetest flow lines and the smoothest strider-pump track for all skill levels to progress. Along with beginner to advanced jump lines, the Park has something fun for everyone.” Before the Park’s existence, the terrain was a field of sagebrush. Today, it is one of the most respected, locally built and supported parks in the West.
Come one come all to the return of Music in the Park presented by Tahoe Donner Recreation and Park District every Wednesday night. It’s free for all, yet donations are always accepted to keep music in the mountains all summer long. The shows start at 6:30 pm and run for about two hours. Bring the kids, pack the picnic, and don’t forget your low-back chair or blanket. Here’s the line-up:
7/7 Dead Winter Carpenters
7/14 Sal’s Greenhouse
7/21 Deja’ Vu
7/28 Beatles Flashback
8/4 Fog City Swampers
8/11 Blues Monsters
8/18 Brubeck Brothers Quartet
8/25 Whiskey Family Band

Tahoe Trail Running is owned and operated by Big Blue Adventure which has been producing professional events for over 25 years. And every year, they continue to donate to local non-profit agencies as part of their mission to support our community.
As best said by its President/CEO Todd Johnson there are three elements that keep them pushing for excellence throughout their adventure programs:
“A passion for being outside; desire to create exciting moments that are a highlight of people’s leisure time; commitment to creating positive experiences and life-long memories.”
