Inspiration for a Mountain Lifestyle in Truckee
It turns out there are many ways to enjoy the mountains without venturing to far into the woods. From your own backyard to interior objects inspired by mountain living, we have culled amazing finds for those who are lucky to explore the mountains of Truckee.
People That Inspire Us
Heather River and Brian Hess embody everything we love about living in Truckee—community, environmental-awareness, art, design and adventure. The couple, who own Bespoke and Atelier in Downtown Truckee, offer the community everything from a weekly knitting group to pine needle basket weaving workshops at Atelier and provide supplies for living a mountain lifestyle at Bespoke.
On Our Bucket List
Sierra Club Backcountry Huts. Has anyone stayed in all four of the Sierra Club's backcountry huts? We haven't yet but it is most definitely on our list. From backcountry skiing to summer backpacking trips, this is a Truckee-Tahoe must do. Nothing beats waking up in a backcountry wonderland, amongst the silence and solitude of the pines, mountains, and falling snow. And, staying in these huts provides access to terrain that would otherwise require long approaches. Reservations are available through the Clair Tappaan Lodge.
On Our Wish List
The Solo Stove makes no smoke, so forget walking circles around the bonfire trying to find the non-smoking section. It’s all thanks to their ingenious design, which encourages airflow not only to the bottom of the fire to fuel the flames but also to the top of the fire where it helps the smoke combust, making for a smokeless fire with roaring flames. We are getting the marshmallows ready!
Mountain Home Goals
On the market now, this lake-view compound is the ultimate basecamp for your Truckee adventures. You'll want to wake up bright and early for a kayak on Boca Reservoir and give yourself extra time to explore the expansive forest surrounding your 17 acres. In the winter months, we guarantee you won't regret having an indoor heated pool and sauna to fully enjoy après ski session.
