In putting together this edition of Tahoe Weekly, it struck me that there’s a plethora of film showings on the horizon and even more food, wine and beer events coming up over the next few weeks – making late October to mid-November Tahoe’s Food & Film season.

Film | Adventure films, environmental films and, of course, lots of ski films make their way to showings in the Tahoe Sierra and beyond in the coming weeks covering everything from rock climbing to back-country skiing, to environmental causes and more. You’ll find the Tahoe showings in the print edition, but the much larger Event Calendar at TheTahoeWeekly.com also includes showings in Reno-Sparks.

Food | Then there’s all of the great food events coming including the Battleborn Chili Festival, the Tahoe Chocolate & Wine Festival, Passport to Dining, and An Evening of Food, Wine & Beer Tasting, all benefitting programs in Tahoe. Add to that a plethora of wine and beer tastings, whiskey tastings, wine walks and beer crawls from Kings Beach to Carson City. And, there’s much more in between. As with the films, we feature a curated list in the print edition, but there’s many more to discover only in the Event Calendar at TheTahoeWeekly.com.

Skiing & riding opens

The warm October days have not stopped Tahoe’s peaks from being blessed with dustings of snow and some near-frigid nights are great conditions for making snow. So, it was exciting when Mt. Rose started turning its lifts on Oct. 19 and 20 for an early-season opening for its passholders. Mt. Rose is opening for the season on Oct. 26 (conditions permitting), with many of the larger resorts eyeing openings around Nov. 16.

We have the complete list of openings at TheTahoeWeekly.com, click on Out & About. And, as always, follow us at facebook.com/TheTahoeWeekly, where we post all of the latest ski news.
