    November is the perfect time to squeeze in a few more days of mountain biking, climbing and hiking before the Winter ski season covers the Tahoe basin in a thick layer of snow. Here are a few great events to make your transition from Fall to Winter a little easier.

    Mountain climber Dave Nettle will be featured at the 7 p.m. Nov. 17 opening of the fourth annual Winter Film Series at the Sawtooth Ridge Café in Tahoe City.

    The public is invited to join Nettle for an evening of stories and images from his most recent trip to the spectacularly remote granite walls in the heart of central Asia.
