With daylight savings now in full effect, you can enjoy a boundless list of outdoor activities from sun-up to sun-down throughout the High Sierra.
Start with a snowshoe hike on your favorite trail. When the snow melts (soon!) hit the links for a round of nine at Old Brockway on Lake Tahoe’s North Shore. Finish up the day with a paddle on your favorite Lake or pampering at a local spa as the sun sets in the West. And that’s just one idea of a full day of fun in the springtime sun.
