While it may not be obvious, Memorial Day weekend at Lake Tahoe and some spring snow flurries often go hand in hand. There’s been a little unsettled weather over the week, but (as of Wednesday afternoon) it looks like we’ll mostly avoid spring storms over the holiday, and sunny skies will prevail, making it a great weekend to get outside. One can never tell though, so keep an eye on the forecast and be prepared for all kinds of conditions when heading out. Here are a couple picks for this week at Lake Tahoe:

1. Bike in the Dark

Night bike rides have been a bit of a trend lately, and a Tahoe Games Bike Night is a good introduction to the practice, providing a family friendly environment and the option just to spectate within reach of an adult beverage. The series returns to Lake Tahoe Golf Course for a second year this Friday.

2. Get Funky

Northern Nevada mainstay Mojo Green brings its funk and soul cuts to Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe for a free show this Sunday. They’ve also got a new album out. There’s bound to be a dance-off at Vinyl.


I’ve jumped out of a perfectly good airplane once, and it was certainly memorable. The claims of a feeling of flight are founded and the adrenaline rush left me juiced for hours after safely reaching the ground. Adding the sights of the Sierra Nevada and Lake Tahoe to the experience is sure to make it otherworldly. Skydive Truckee Tahoe recently began operating out of Truckee and, closer to the South Shore, Skydive Lake Tahoe also offers jumps out of Minden, Nevada.
