Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer in Lake Tahoe and that means it’s time to officially put the ski and snowboard gear away and get ready for warm sunny days. Early summer is the perfect time to get outside, explore, and experience everything that Tahoe has to offer. The weather during June is perfect for activities like hiking, biking, kayaking, paddle boarding, or just relaxing at the beach. Temperatures tend to be milder, which allows you to spend more time outside without the heat. Below are some of our favorite things to do during the month of June. Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
Take a Hike:
Resort at Squaw Creek sits in the middle of Olympic Valley which is known for some of best skiing in the country. What people don’t know is after the snow melts you can access some fantastic hiking. Hikes like Shirley Canyon are perfect for the whole family to enjoy, or if you’re a little more adventurous you can take on a more advanced trail like Eagles Nest. Whatever your experience level there is a trail for you that is accessible from right here at the resort.
Don’t feel comfortable enough to head out on your own? Pick up one of our summer recreation guides and see all the guided hikes that leave from the resort! Our Recreation Team will take you on a beautiful hike around Olympic Valley, provide lunch, and a lot of great information about Lake Tahoe!
Bike to the Lake:
Did you know that you can rent a bike right here at Resort at Squaw Creek? We have a wide selection of mountain bikes, cruisers, kids’ bikes, and kids’ carriers. It’s everything you need to have a great family adventure exploring the Truckee River and Lake Tahoe. From Resort at Squaw Creek it is less than 5 miles to Tahoe City where you can go to the beach, check out the local shops, or explore more of Lake Tahoe. If you are really feeling adventurous you can bike to Tahoe City and then rent a kayak or paddle board and go from land to water in one adventure.
Have a large group and want something a little more organized? Look no further than our Recreation Team. Every week our team leads guided bike rides, bike and SUP trips, and even a bike and river rafting adventure.
Take a load off at the beach:
Although June’s temperatures can be milder than the rest of summer, it is still great weather to take advantage of Tahoe’s amazing beaches. From Resort at Squaw Creek you are only a short drive or bike ride to some great sandy spots like Commons Beach in Tahoe City or Kings Beach. Be warned that the water may still be a little cold from the winter months, but if you ask anyone from Lake Tahoe they will tell you no matter the season a dip into the lake is always refreshing.
Enjoy lots of onsite activities:
