North Lake Tahoe, California Things to Do
There is a great sense of childlike magic for adults and children alike when it comes to hot-air balloons. You could be three, thirteen, or thirty years old, and watching them fire up and take flight is still exhilarating and beautiful. Watching hundreds of balloons fly through the sky, aglow with bright colors on a crisp late summer morning is something every kid (at heart) should experience.
Every September the Reno-Tahoe area is treated to the largest FREE hot-air balloon event in the world at the Great Reno Balloon Race. This year’s event is held September 11-13, 2015 at Rancho San Rafael Regional Park in Reno, Nevada.
The festival is packed full of outdoor events that start as early as 5:15am on September 11. We’re talking a famous Glow Show (this is a MUST-SEE!), Pajama Party, Balloon Mass Ascension, and much more. Since the balloons take flight at dawn we do suggest hitting the hay early, and ensuring you have some way of accessing hot coffee or a hot beverage in the morning as you take the short drive from Squaw Valley into Reno. Watching the sun barely rising over the Sierra Nevada Mountains is a sight to see, and another treat before watching all the hot-air balloons ascend! Pack snacks for kiddos, dress warmly in layers, and don’t forget to bring your camera!
September is a great time to visit the Tahoe area, and you don’t want to miss out on our low-season rates! Check them out online, or contact one of our Reservation Agents for lodging deals or assistance with choosing the right accommodations. We can probably even help with ideas on where to get hot coffee at 5am. We like early mornings around Squaw Valley. It’s a beautiful time to be awake and enjoy the great outdoors!

Every year in late June Squaw Valley is flooded with some of the premier endurance athletes from around the world. They flock to the area for one of the largest ultra-marathon races, that actually starts in our backyard (just steps from the Squaw Valley Lodge). The runners travel 100 miles on foot from Squaw Valley, California to Auburn, California in the snow and sunshine–depending on what Mother Nature gives them that year.
This year’s competitors did not face snow, rather, intense heat for June 27, 2015. There were 371 starts and 254 finishers; Rob Krar defended the men’s title with a finish of 14:48:59 and the women’s first place went to Magdalena Boulet at 19:05. What phenomenal times for a race where temperatures reach the low 90’s.
Though we do lodge a lot of athletes for the race, it’s a great time to visit and watch the action live! Especially if you are an early bird and want to rise before dawn with a hot cup of coffee to send off our runners!
