Tahoe Time

Greetings –
I often hear around tax season how expensive it is to live in CA and many people contemplate leaving the state to seek other fun resort areas where they can live the same lifestyle and save a little money.  There are so many amazing places on this planet, but it doesn’t get much better than Tahoe on a day-to-day basis.  With an international airport 45 minutes away in Reno and the ocean and Bay area  a short 3-4 hour drive, we can cover a lot of ground and maximum the fun factor any season of the year.
The other day I saw my friend Daron Huck in one of my favorite coffee shops,  Zuri Coffee CO.  Daron owns Tahoe Dirt Bikes and everyday you will find him out guiding clients on tours or riding mountain bikes, dirt bikes, timbersled snow bikes and RZRs all over the Reno Tahoe area and promoting his business.  He invited me out for a dirt bike ride to the Lemon Valley OHV area a few days ago just outside of Reno.  Of course I said yes and we had the best time ripping around the beautiful desert and climbing mountains with views all over the Great Basin including Pyramid Lake.  Daron is a consummate professional coaching in a positive manner while maximizing the fun.  He doesn’t miss a beat with his clients as he has a headset connected to his helmet so he can stop and answer any client questions or book an upcoming tour.  Daron went straight from the desert to the mountains today riding fresh powder on his timbersleds.
Tahoe Dirt Bikes works under guiding and outfitting special use permits from the Truckee ranger district of the Tahoe National Forest to provide adventure seekers safe, responsible, and enjoyable off-road experiences.  Rentals and tours can be catered to all ability levels, from novice to expert.  Whether you’re looking for friendly advice on trails, a self-guided rental, or interested in booking a guided off-road adventure, Tahoe Dirt Bikes will steer you in the right direction.
The very next day I found myself dropping my 3 year old off for his Mountain Camp ski school at Squaw Valley.  Squaw happened to have a foot of fresh snow and I was able to make some powder turns in the morning while my son was having the time of his life skiing in the snow storm with his little buddies.  After the last couple of days I am ready to put my hot tub to some use and it is such a good reminder why I love living here and raising my family in such an amazing area – it is worth every penny…
PICK OF THE WEEK
The three car garage at 2538 North Summit Place will be big enough to house all of those Tahoe toys for your many adventures.  With a list price of $4,250,000 this is well below replacement value that would probably be in the neighborhood of $6M plus.  This Frank Lloyd Wright inspired MWA designed home is set just above the Timberline chair in Northstar with incredible views of the Sierra Crest as well as Carson Range.  The amount of thought and detail into every aspect of this home down to the light fixtures is what makes it very special.  This award winning property truly brings the outdoors in and blends with its environment and landscape.  The craftsman nature creates a warm and cozy environment in each space throughout this 5 bed, 6 bath 5,694 sq. ft. retreat.  Here is a link for more details: Click Here to View Listings
I hope to see you up on the mountain enjoying the fresh snow and all the Tahoe activities!

Best,
Shane
