So why “Tahoe Sux?” Isn’t that a bit negative for a blog?
Here’s a snapshot of a conversation we’ve been having for 6 years now.
Me- “How’s the weather?”
H- “Oh it sucks today. Glassy lake, blue skies, 70s”
Me- “Wow that does suck?”
H- “What did you do today?”
Me- “I rode into Tahoe City and did 25 miles of singletrack. Trail conditions were epic. Saw 2 people on the trail in 25 miles.”
H- “Wow that sucks!”
Me- “Yup, Tahoe pretty much sucks today.”
Sigh. More peaks, trails, vistas, alpine lakes, water. Boring. Let’s watch TV all day instead.
Seriously though, Tahoe (like many mountain recreation areas) is a mecca for outdoor sports enthusiasts. The true Tahoe is not found in casinos, bars, shopping, or buffets. The true Tahoe is found on the trails and in the backcountry. We’ve had such incredible adventures, that we want to share them, share some of our favorite routes and adventures, and perhaps inspire people to get out there.
