Spring truly is a unique time to visit Reno Tahoe. Where else can you ski and golf, or paddleboard and snowshoe all in one day? The transition from winter to summer offers a variety of unique sights and experiences. Here are some great reasons to visit the area during the spring months.
Just because winter is over, it doesn’t mean you need to put away your skis or snowboard. From pond skimming to spring skiing shenanigans, things can get a little wild at Tahoe ski resorts once the days get longer!
Sugar Bowl Resort will host their always-popular Tiki Pond Skim event on April 20 that draws crowds and contestants. Cheer on (or heckle) the skills and wipe-outs and enjoy the promise of spring on the air. Reno Tahoe is known for ski seasons that last well into the spring months – Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows has announced their plans to stay open through May – so you can extend your ski season almost into beach season!
Trees and flowers are beginning to bloom all around! Whether you’re taking a stroll along the Riverwalk District, through the campus of the University of Nevada, Reno or on a hike in the hills of Reno or mountains of Lake Tahoe, you’ll be sure to notice trees and flowers blossoming throughout the region! Put on your walking shoes and take in the natural beauty, colors and sunshine gracing the area. Don’t miss out on some of the best places to see wildflowers and waterfalls in Reno Tahoe too.
Throughout the spring, Lake Tahoe’s water is typically calm and clear, making it the perfect time for stand-up paddleboarding along the shoreline of Lake Tahoe. Take advantage of the relative calm before the summer crowds hit and enjoy the views of snow-capped mountains while gliding on the clear water.
Everything on the menu tastes better when paired with some warm sunshine! Start your day with an outdoor adventure and then make your way to one of Reno’s many bars and restaurants that offer patio seating. Or spend some time experiencing the unique dining opportunities, warm weather and views along the Riverwalk District.
Some say Reno Tahoe’s altitude means your golf ball will fly 10 percent farther. It’s up to you to decide if that’s true at one of the 50 plus golf courses located within 90 minutes of Reno. Whether you’re an amateur or a pro, dust off your clubs and treat yourself to world-class golf.
Spring means the Reno Aces, our Minor League baseball team, are kicking off their season at Greater Nevada Field near downtown Reno. Their games are fun for fans of all ages, with unique events and promotions like Star Wars Night and Fireworks Friday.
And those long days mean you can fit in even more between dawn and dusk, making spring the perfect season for ‘dual days’ in Reno Tahoe. First chair in the morning and a tee time in the afternoon? Sounds good to us!
