The Sun is Shining Bright Over Lake Tahoe

By Shanie Matthews

This week is spectacular for a few reasons.

First, the weather is absolutely amazing. The sun came back to visit, making it perfect for enjoying our plentiful snow amounts. The abundance of snow is so impressive that is rumored that some ski areas may attempt to stay open all year long. Now that is impressive!

This week presents some great opportunities to get to know the awe-inspiring history of world-renowned trails in the area, enjoy some live music as well as learn the art of diary making.

What do I mean exactly? Check it out!
