 Squaw Valley USA and Alpine Meadows Ski Area Combine!

sv am

Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are combining operations. Between the two resorts, Wirth said guests will be able to access more than 6,000 skiable acres, providing “more value, more terrain, more variety.” The two resorts are between Truckee and Tahoe City on the lake’s north shore, about 45 miles west of Reno and 100 miles northeast of Sacramento. They share a common ridgeline but are not connected by ski lifts.

Mortgage Rates at All Time Lows…dwn graph

Mortgage rates hit historic lows on Thursday, falling below 4 percent for the first time since Freddie Mac started keeping track in 1971.

The average rate for a 30-year fixed was 3.94 percent for the week ended Thursday, it said. The average 15-year rate was 3.26 percent.The bad news is that only a small pool of borrowers can qualify to take advantage of those cheap mortgages – and many of them have already done so during the past months of falling rates. Read More

Pictures from Keoki Flagg of “The Push” Paddle event at Our Listing 4850 N  Lake Blvd. on Lake Tahoe!

push event

 This four-day paddle was a training mission for the team as they prepare for their South Pole expedition in January 2012. “Paddling Lake Tahoe is a soulful experience,” said Davis. “You’re completely surrounded by snowcapped peaks while sitting atop tranquil waters so clear that you can literally see 75 feet down. But the lake also makes for a fantastic cross-training venue as we’ll be paddling approximately 96,800 paddle strokes, just more than half the 176,174 estimated pole pushes it will take to trek 100 miles across the frozen landscape to the South Pole.”
