In Lake Tahoe, this La Niña year has turned out to be la no-snow, but there is always a silver lining to every cloud. Conditions in Tahoe are great for hiking and fishing. Keep those the snowshoes in the garage and hike to your favorite location in a fraction of the time it would take trudging through powder. This has ice skaters scrabbling to the mountain lakes and ice climbers gearing up for frozen waterfalls. The lack of snow has also extended many Tahoe seasonal sports such and mountain biking, paddle boarding and trail running—to name a few. But what really has the community’s attention is its new Winter golf scene! On Tuesday, January 10, the Tahoe Daily Tribune reported on one Incline Village golf course that has turned la no-snow into la tea time:
As the weather forecast continues to show no snow in the near future for the Lake Tahoe region, officials announced Friday they have re-opened the Mountain Golf Course.
The 18-hole, par-54 short course, operated by the Incline Village General Improvement District (which also runs Diamond Peak Ski Resort), will be open Wednesday-Sunday “until the snow flies,” according to a press release.
First tee time each day is 10 a.m., and the course is walking only. Golf shop hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
