Thank you to all of the folks who visited Tahoe for the holiday weekend. We are happy you could enjoy some new snow. Hope all of the locals on break have been able to enjoy winter at Tahoe as well.
Just a reminder to everyone that our bears are participating in a lot of the winter activities so please be careful when you put out your trash. Do not feed the bears!
