The Mountains Are Open in Tahoe

Early snow in the Tahoe basin allowed for several mountains to open earlier than expected for the 2015 – 2016 season. Not only is Tahoe area looking beautiful but guests can enjoy our ski packages a week earlier than anticipated.

Top 5 Sunrise Views in Tahoe

Getting up early is tough for most people. Lake Tahoe sunrises, however, make it totally worth it. Even though Daylight Savings Time just ended, the sun still rises later than summer and you don’t have to wake up in the wee hours of the morning to catch it. Well, depending on where you’re going.

We’ve compiled our list of the top 5 places to catch the sunrise from in Lake Tahoe. So go explore.

  1. The Ridge Tahoe – This might be obvious, but we’re going to go with us. The sun rises directly behind our resort affording some amazing colors and photos without having to travel. Here’s a list of sunrise times for the entire month of November so you don’t miss it while you visit The Ridge Tahoe, or change out of your pjs.

    Imagine waking up to sunrises like this every year.

    Imagine waking up to a sunrises like this.

  2. Emerald Bay – one of the most photographed locations in the country, your photos are going to be gorgeous at any time of the day. But there is certainly something special about sunrise. Make sure you allow enough time to arrive and pick your location before the sun actually starts to rise as the moments before the sun peaks over the mountain tops are sometimes the best for colors.

    Can you see why it's one of the most photographed spots in the country?  Photo: Rod Hanna.

  3. Maggies Peak – this short hike is all uphill and with this week’s new snow, might be difficult going forward. But the views are nothing short of amazing. From Maggies you can see Cascade Lake, Emerald Bay and of course, Lake Tahoe. The hike is about 4 miles roundtrip and takes about 45 minutes to get to the summit. Bring LOTS of layers.
  4. Mt. Tallac – one of the more popular overnight hikes in the basin it is also more challenging and longer. And again, the new snow will make this extremely difficult without the right equipment. Might want to save this one for spring or backcountry skiing. The hike is about 10 miles and takes 3 to 3.5 hours to get to the summit. Again, layers are required, not recommended.
  5. Timber Cove – not a hike or even a far drive. This beach has one of the longest piers on the lake. Walk out to the end and turn around to see the sun rising above the mountains. This is a quick trip that will give you great photos without a strenuous hike. It is also perfect for children and grandparents.

    We know we said to turn around, but the colors to the lake are pretty nice as well.  Photo: Erin Leigh Frederick.

Where to be for a Tahoe Sunset

The Tahoe South sunsets have been so good lately they inspired us to write a blog on the best spots to check them out. We know we’ve given you scenic viewpoints and gorgeous hikes in the past, but we’ve collected a list of our top 5 locations to watch the sun go down.

  1. Cave Rock – This is a popular spot for locals and visitors. It’s a short hike followed by some average bouldering to get to the top. From the top you can enjoy panoramic views of the lake. The trailhead sits off Cave Rock Drive. If you don’t have a lot of time, this is the hike for you as it only takes about 15 minutes to get to the top once you’ve parked.

    A Cave Rock sunset is always a good view.  Photo: Britt Hobart

  2. Logan Shoals – This popular viewing point is right off Highway 50 after Cave Rock. It’s a short walk, but if you’re not afraid of bush whacking it a little, there’s a path below where you can get an even better look at the lake. The path extends to two miles on each side and stops at private property on both sides.
  3. Van Sickle Bi-State Park – How often can you tell people you’ve been in two places at once? You can do that multiple times on this hike. There are several different paths so it’s kind of like a choose your own adventure hike. Hike up to Heavenly Mountain and The Ridge Tahoe or make it a short hike to scenic viewpoints. Or start at The Ridge Tahoe and hike down to this trail.

  4. Zephyr Cove – Known for being one of the better beaches in town, it also offers incredible views. Relax by the water, bring a blanket and a cuddle buddy. There’s just something about the way the sun sets behind those rocks.

  5. From a boat – The lake always looks better when you’re on the water. Take a cruise on the MS Dixie II to enjoy the sunset from the best location. The cruise includes dinner and a lap around Emerald Bay.

From Our Chef: A Fall Recipe

The summer to fall season always seems to be such a fast transition, sometimes it feels like it happens overnight.  Summer food for me is always so abundant with amazing variety of flavors and textures.

Fall food is a change of the way I cook food, richness that seems to have to be coaxed out with slower more patient cooking techniques. Braising or stewing with root vegetables with deeper stocks tends to bring more of a comfort or authentic flavors to fall dishes.

You will see this soup served many times in the coming months at the Mountain side Eatery and the Hungry Bear restaurant. Enjoy!

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup


  • 3 ½ to 4 pounds Butternut squash
  • 2 cups medium diced yellow onion
  • 2 cups medium diced celery
  • 1 cup medium diced peeled carrots
  • 1 quart chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • Sea salt / fresh ground Black pepper


  • 4 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped chives


  • Pre-heat convection oven to 350
  • Split squash lengthwise and coat flesh with olive oil, salt and pepper, leave seeds in
  • Place flesh side down on a baking pan lined with aluminum foil and cook for 45 minutes or till flesh is tender to touch (think baby food mush)
  • In a medium pan on medium heat cook onions, celery and carrots in 2 Tablespoons of olive oil till tender and set aside
  • In a blender or food processor place 2 cups of stock and half vegetables and puree, when smooth and the rest of the mix and add stock when needed
  • Remove seeds from cooked squash, scoop out with spoon and blend with vegetables in batches, adding liquid as needed
  • Adjust seasonings to taste and add thyme
  • Top hot soup with chive sour cream and serve
There's nothing better than a warm soup on a chilly autumn day.
