We’ve always had such great experiences when we visit Quality Auto (as do the 118 pages of five-star reviews on their website!) and we were curious to find out more about the owners, Bill and Sheila Greeno, and what makes their Truckee business so special.
There’s something simplistically beautiful about fall that makes us want to do just one thing: look. As we move into cooler weather, here are five hikes to take in autumn's colors before winter hides them in white.
Truckee was a town of the wild west. It was reported by historian Robert O’Brien that “Truckee went its own independent way and promptly became a juvenile delinquent among the California mountain towns.”
One thing you can count on in the fall season is “crunch time”. The looming deadlines brought forth by winter are inevitable. Each year there is an abundance of projects to accomplish before the summer subcontractors sign off or move inside and tractors are traded for plows.
First snow of the season has already happened and skiing and boarding will soon commence. But before that happens, you must decide which season pass to purchase. Here is a comparison of each resort around Truckee to help you decide!
Winter is here and so are the snow storms. In Truckee, storms are a good thing because it means there is a fresh blanket to ski on and water for a great ecosystem. However, storms can be halting to daily life. They might prevent people from driving or they might shut down local power for a few days. As a Truckee local, you must be prepared for anything.
If you’re as obsessed with Truckee and Tahoe as we are, then you will love these books that are all about the area. From ghost stories to local guides, these books should be staples in your Truckee home!
Not just great ice cream, but super premium all natural ice cream made right here at our new facility down toward the west end of Donner Lake. Watch the video below from Visit Truckee to more about Little Truckee Ice Creamery.
Wildflower season is undoubtedly our favorite. With temperatures rising and the anticipation of lake days building, hiking through vast meadows decorated with rainbow florals is how we burn that spring fever.
