  • Changing seasons means time for golf

    By Warren Miller on May 23, 2013
    Since the middle of December, everyone I know has been looking for deep, untracked powder snow. Now in the late spring, many of the same friends are looking for short, green grass with a microscopically small hole 300 or 400 yards away. For some dumb reason, the object is to put that little white ball at your feet into that […]

      Every time I visit Christy Hill I am always delighted. With an amazing lake view, cozy ambiance and excellent food, this is dining experience to be savored.

Everyone on the staff clearly […]
  • Genoise Sponge Cake

    It has been a while since I’ve done a dessert and with all that’s gone on in Boston since the marathon, and since all my friends are constantly reminding me of my Boston accent, I thought it would be fitting to try a Boston cream pie. The thing is, since this cake, yes, it is really a cake and not […]

  • Memorial Day Flash Flood, Part II

    By Mark McLaughlin on May 23, 2013
    Nature is capricious and chaotic. Remote and random events sometimes combine to produce cataclysmic forces of destruction. Tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes, avalanches and floods exact a toll on those caught in the fist of fate. Some victims make poor decisions or fatal mistakes; others are simply caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. Thirty years ago, a landslide-induced torrent […]

  • Endless Summer Fun

    By Katherine Hill on May 23, 2013
    The Memorial Day Weekend kicks off summer in Tahoe and ends when fall colors descend on the Sierra. The next four months are the height of summer in Tahoe-Truckee and it’s time to get out there. There’s so much to do over the summer, it’s impossible to fit it into a single weekend. So, we’ve put together a list of […]
  • Great wines for spring

    By Barbara Keck on May 8, 2013
    The summer season is just around the corner, which for me means shifting primary attention from the Bay Area wine scene and concentrating on the tasting and pairing excitement to be had in the Sierra Foothills and at the Lake. But, before that happens, I’d like to do a shout out for the consistently good experience of tasting at the […]
  • Ski migration

    By Warren Miller on May 8, 2013
    I think migration to the far away, snow-covered mountains of the West really began in a railroad yard in Omaha, Neb., during the summer of 1936. It began immediately after Averill Harriman, whose father owned the Union Pacific Railroad, financed the construction of America’s first destination ski resort, Sun Valley, Idaho. Steve Hannagan, Averill’s public relations genius told him, “no […]

    The most recent eatery to hit Incline Village is Nine 41, a charmingly remodeled fine dining establishment with a clean, yet cozy atmosphere, and an inventive menu that guarantees success.
