A Happy Tahoe New Year

I’m so happy 2022 is knocking on the door. 2021 was much better than 2020 for many reasons including a life-saving vaccine that most of us can now take and the beginning of a recovery for businesses hit hard by the pandemic. But so long 2021.

There’s still a long road ahead for many businesses, including building back The Tahoe Weekly, but thanks for our amazing readers, new and long-time clients, and many generous donors, we are looking forward to a bright future. At this time a year ago, I really didn’t know if Tahoe Weekly would make it through 2021.

While our readership is at an all-time high, we’re still hard at work building back our financial health as we move into 2022. If you love and enjoy the Tahoe Weekly as so many of you tell me, I ask that you support our advertisers, who in turn support this locally owned and operated magazine.


40th anniversary

In February, we’ll be celebrating the 40th anniversary of our first edition of Tahoe Weekly (called North Tahoe Week back then). We’re planning some fun projects to celebrate in 2022 and hopefully we’ll be holding an anniversary party later in the year (depending on this persistent pandemic).


Nordic Ski & Snowshoe Guide

Did you know that the Tahoe Sierra has the largest concentration of Nordic ski areas in North America? It’s true.

There are 20 Nordic areas in the region offering ski and snowshoe trails from one of the largest cross-country ski areas in the country (Royal Gorge) to nonprofit-run and community-owned trail systems to local state parks with a variety of both groomed and marked (ungroomed) trail systems. And half of them offer free trail access.

You’ll find profiles on 18 of the areas (2 remain closed this season) in our 15th annual Nordic Ski & Snowshoe Guide in this edition. You’ll also want to read Tim Hauserman’s Nordic snow conditions glossary in his “Know Your Snow” feature along with his tips for skiing in different conditions.


Happy New Year!
