Fall in the Sierras is a magical time and the favorite season to most Lake Tahoe residents. The Lake Tahoe area is calm and quite after the busy summer months, which makes it ideal to take advantage of all the great outdoor activities you can participate in. Whether you here to hike, mountain bike, rock climb, fly fish or just relax October is the perfect month to do everything. Here is Resort at Squaw Creeks Guide to have the best October vacation.

Plan Ahead:

October is a great time to get outdoors and adventure because of the temperature. It is the sweet spot between the almost unbearably hot days of summer and the frigid cold of winter. With that said, when you are planning your Tahoe adventure it is always better to be over prepared than unprepared. As you are exploring, the mild temperatures of October can make way to some very beautiful days that may not require someone to be “bundled up”. On the other hand, October is known for its rapid changes in the weather. One moment it can be sunny and warm and the next the temperatures can drop and it can start to rain or in some rare cases snow. If you are prepared, check the forecast and plan accordingly nothing can stop you from having an amazing day exploring Lake Tahoe. The last thing you want is to have one of your days here ruined because of inclement weather.

Get Off the Beaten Path:

When visiting Tahoe in the fall it’s important to understand that, although Tahoe is a year around destination, the fall and spring are considered the slow season. What does this mean for you? It means that somethings that are available in the summer and winter months are not available in the fall or the spring but don’t worry there are plenty of incredible things to do here. The thing to remember is that Tahoe as a whole is a very active place. Everyone does something so don’t be a stranger and ask someone where you’re stay, eating, or someone just on the street for a suggestion on something to do.

Don’t be scared to go off the beaten path. Go somewhere or do something that you would not normally do. Tahoe has a way of opening our eyes to new experiences as long as you are willing to open up yourself to these experiences. Ask a local and they will tell you that the best days here are not when you do what “everyone does” but the days when they made their own adventures, found a secret spot with their friend, and even got lost a little. Tahoe is so much more than just a lake, it is a lifestyle that encourages the people near it to get outside and enjoy nature.
Picture Perfect Tahoe:

Lake Tahoe is one of the most photographed places in the United States. Iconic places like Bonsai Rock and Emerald Bay are some of the best places for visitors and photographers alike to capture their perfect Tahoe picture. There is no bad season to capture a truly epic photo of the lake but fall’s changing colors, brilliant sunsets and lack of crowds makes it especially easy to get out and find your perfect moment to capture. Have questions about where to get the best picture? Ask our Concierge at ext. 6610.

FALL IN LOVE:

Expect anything & everything.

When planning your day in Tahoe, during the fall, be ready for anything and everything. By that, we mean the weather. The weather in the Sierra Nevada Mountains during the fall is temperate but can change very quickly. There is a saying here, “if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes.” It is not uncommon to experience 70 degrees and sunny one day, and snow the next. When you are planning your adventure for the day keep this in mind - pack for sunny days at the beach but also be prepared for inclement weather, just in case.

Local Tip: Temperatures cool quite a bit at night, especially during the fall months. It can even start to dip below freezing in the early hours of the morning. Be sure to bring a long sleeve and wear other warm clothing when going out at night. It’s better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.

What to do: Be spontaneous!

When visiting Tahoe in the fall it’s important to understand, although Tahoe is a year-round destination, things slow a bit, businesses in the area often change their hours and some activities are limited. What does this mean for you? There are always plenty of incredible things to do here and fall is the time to explore the local’s side of Tahoe. The trails are less traveled, the beaches are clear, and the air is still warm. You just need to be willing to be spontaneous! Don’t be scared to go out and try new things on the drop of a hat.

Fall is, by the local standard, the best season for Tahoe. In fact September is often called “local’s summer.” The temperature is just right for outdoor activities like biking, hiking, rock climbing and fly fishing! There are no crowds, traffic is at a minimum, and you have the best chance to meet some really incredible people. Tahoe as a whole is a very active place and everyone does something. Don’t be a stranger! Ask someone here at the resort for a suggestion on something to do, where the best spot to go hiking is, where to watch the sunset… or the sunrise.

Local Tip: The best adventures are the ones you have no expectations or plans for because you can fully appreciate it, no matter what happens.

Where to go: Find your perfect place.

Ask anyone who lives near Lake Tahoe and they will tell you that they have a favorite spot on the lake. For the people that live here finding that special spot where we can get away from everything is an integral part of living here. It is where we go to relax, escape the stresses of work, and where we go to appreciate how amazing this place is.

We want to help you find your own special place in Tahoe. Our concierge team has a great list of suggestions, everything from beaches and hikes to mountain bike rides and places to kayak. One idea, to get you on your Tahoe journey – take a drive around it! No matter where you are start it only takes about 2 hours to circumnavigate, or about 80 miles. Throughout the drive, there are plenty of pull-offs and stops that will allow you to set off on your own adventure and find your perfect place. We would suggest checking out the East Shore for beautiful sandy beaches and hidden coves, or the West Shore for views of Emerald Bay. It is a very interesting experience to see the lake from all sides.

Local Tip: Have a camera? Bring it with you everywhere you go. You never know when you are going to come across that perfect shot.

Lake Tahoe is the perfect place for a summer vacation you’ll never forget and Resort at Squaw Creek is here to help. Below is just an example of a perfect day here in Lake Tahoe. The best part are all activities listed below take place right here so you don’t have to go far to have fun.
8:00 am
Everyone knows there is never enough time to do everything you want on vacation so it is important to wake up nice and early so you can get the most out of your day. Not a morning person? We have you covered. Get your morning kick-started with a coffee or tea from Sweet Potatos Deli or enjoy a great breakfast at Cascades. A good breakfast will get you ready for an awesome morning adventure with one of our Recreation Team’s guided activities!
9:00 am
Almost every morning, Monday through Saturday, there are guided activities taking place from right here at Resort at Squaw Creek. These include activities like a guided hike up Shirley Canyon with views of cascading waterfalls, Shirley Lake, and a gondola ride down from High Camp to Squaw Valley Village. There is also a Peddle & Paddle Tour where you bike to Lake Tahoe and Paddleboard, and a Bike & Float Tour where you bike to Tahoe City and then raft the Truckee River back to the resort. No matter your experience level, there is an adventure waiting for you!
3:00 pm
After a long morning of exploring there is nothing better than cooling off by the pool and having a drink from the Oasis Grille. Also on Wednesdays and Fridays there are Pool Slide Races, so you can test your speed against other guests! May the fastest win! If you need a little extra pampering check out Spa at Squaw Creek for all your spa needs.
6:00 pm
Test your skill against other guests with our lawn tournament games on the Pavilion. All you need is a partner and some luck and you could walk away the champion of the resort. On Wednesday look for Bocce ball, Friday play Cornhole, and Saturday check out Ping Pong.
7:00 pm
As the day comes to an end it’s time to enjoy the finer things in life like a good meal. Montagna is the Resort at Squaw Creek’s newest restaurant and was recently named one of North Shore’s best restaurants by USA Today. The menu is our Executive Chef’s modern take on classical Italian and is full of dishes that will make you say WOW! Try some of our favorites like the molto grande meatball, Parisian gnocchi and a daily housemade fresh pasta.
8:30 pm
Finally, take advantage of the beautiful night sky with our Stargazing Tour. Gaze into the vast beyond and learn about the constellations, the history of stars, and perhaps a bit about your astrological sign. It is the perfect end to a perfect day!

August is a great month to get outside and explore, and Resort at Squaw Creek is here to help! If you have any questions about where to go or what to do, please call our Recreation Team at ext. 6818 or our Concierge at ext. 6610
