June 1, 2023 | Jill Amen

Summer 2023, Bring it On!

This Summer in North Lake Tahoe is about experiences: Exploring something new, spending special moments with friends and family, and finding time just for you. Boat ramps are launching, the lake is brimming, the sun is high, and solstice is just around the corner.

Time to awaken your inner child, play with your family, and immerse yourself in our awe-inspiring great outdoors: On trail, lake, river and beach. With each Blog we’ll highlight fun and new adventures, our fantastic MLRTahoe resort activities and offerings, and share our commitment to environmental stewardship.  Whether you do it all or noting at all, this is your Experience Guide to get the most out of your Lake Tahoe vacation. Bring it on, Summer! 

Lake Tahoe’s Back

It’s been called liquid sapphire for a reason. Its transitioning hues of blues to turquoise dive to the abyss of 1645 feet. One of the clearest in the world, Lake Tahoe stretches 72 miles and now brims full at nearly 39 trillion gallons. The Lake is back in full splendor. It’s about summer adventure, awe and fun. 

Take the plunge – Full disclosure: Yes, it’s still a chill with temperatures in the mid-to- high 50s, but warming to as high as 68-70 degrees by mid-Summer. So why not go for the rush and take that primal plunge!

Get on the Water – Summer on Lake Tahoe means kayaking, paddleboarding or a hydrobike paddle. If you are a guest at Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort, enjoy one of these self-propelled adventures—all included in your resort stay . And, ski boat rentals are available for adrenalin seeking skiers and wake-boarders, right from the resort. 

Beach it – No doubt, the beach is the place to be this Summer. Soak up these sunny days on our 275 feet of private, sandy beachfront where loungers and umbrellas, water-craft, fire pits, beach yoga and “Music on the Beach” capture the quintessential Lake Tahoe experience.  Check out our Summer beach activities guide to see what’s awaiting you.  

No matter where you are on Lake Tahoe, you can find great public beaches and water-craft rentals—all surrounded by snow capped mountains and forested shoreline. Try the State Park Beach in Kings Beach where you can enjoy plenty of beach activities, concerts and more.

Chill to some Summer Vibes – Kickback for some great local talent with local and world-class musicians and bands all summer long. Time to let loose and soak up some irresistible beats.  The experiences are endless with a diverse range of free concerts throughout North Lake Tahoe including Mourelatos Beachside Resort’s “Summer on the Beach” series. 

Hit the Trails

Lace up your Boots – With hundreds of miles of winding trails and pathways, the Lake Tahoe region is a haven for all types of outdoor enthusiasts. Each trail, no matter how gentle or steep, offers a unique adventure through stunning landscapes, scenic vistas, lush forests, rushing waterfalls and crystal-clear alpine lakes. Whether you’re a seasoned hiker, explorer or wanderer, North Lake Tahoe has a trail for you. So, lace up your hiking boots and get out for a leisurely stroll or a heart-pumping ascent, and follow our Summer hiking guide for some of the best trails in Lake Tahoe. 

Time to Peddle  – Mountain bikers and bike riding enthusiasts know that North Lake Tahoe offers some of the best riding in the Sierra Nevada, with trails and terrain to suit riders all skill levels and interests—from family-friendly to technical single-tracks. Our landscape is diverse, with many trails and routes offer stunning views of the surrounding mountains, lakes and the Truckee River. Here are some of our top picks sorted by family-friendly to challenging.

Off the Beaten Path Adventures

Try a new perspective this Summer with some mountain exploration and non-traditional hiking. 

Climb a Rock – If it’s a mountain adventure you’re after, then add the Tahoe Via Ferrata to your must-do list. A highly exhilarating ascent with a real thrill factor, this climbing opportunity combines elements of rock climbing and mountaineering as you traverse up a mountain. Securely attached to safety cables at all times, you are guided up a fixed route of complex terrain along a rock face using a series of steel cables, ropes, ladders, and metal rungs. The great news is that no experience is required; you need nothing but your sense of adventure. Along the way, you will be awed with rugged granite, breathtaking and panoramic views of Lake Tahoe. Perhaps it’s time to push limits, conquer your fears and hang out on a wire. 

Forest Bathing – Take a walk in the forest with mindful intention—a slow and meditative practice that encourages you to be fully present in the moment. It’s not about exercise or hiking, as you may only cover a distance of no more than a mile. It is about disconnecting and finding solace in nature. Self-guided forest explorations like forest bathing often promote a sense of calm, relaxation, rejuvenation and self-awareness—all while improving overall well-being.

Take the time to slow down and engage your senses. Breathe in the fresh mountain air and musty soil, feel the softness of the forest floor beneath your feet, listen to the soothing sounds of birds chirping, tune into running waters, find textures in trees and rocks and listen to the aspen leaves rustling in the wind, observe the intricate details of the flora and fauna that call the forest home, from towering pine trees to vibrant wildflowers. Whether you choose solo or a quite group find a quiet spot to sit and absorb the peacefulness of the forest, or simply stand still and embrace the serenity.

Try a peaceful stroll at the North Tahoe Regional Park, just behind MLRTahoe. Or, venture further to dozens of lush forested trails including Shirley Canyon,  Desolation Wilderness, or explore dozens of other trails off the beaten path. 

Share in the Stewardship of Lake Tahoe’s Natural Beauty

Summer is naturally a busy season, so before heading off to any of Lake Tahoe’s summer adventures, we encourage you to be mindful of the people and environment around you. Tips for responsible exploring this summer include: 

  • Be part of the solution: Utilize public transportation like TART to help get you around. 
  • Respect the environment by disposing of any trash responsibly.  
  • Always bring a hat, sunscreen and a reusable water bottle.  
  • Check weather conditions before you go – while the summer is usually sunny, calm mornings often give way to windy or rainy afternoons. 
  • Be “Bear Aware” by removing any food from your car.  Bears will and can break into your car.
  • Be fire safe. No camp fires or fireworks of any kind. 
  • For more information on how to travel responsibly in North Lake Tahoe, see our Know Before You Go Guide.  

This is your Summer. Let Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort be your basecamp for all things fun, relaxing, and adventurous. We’ve got it all: the best beachside and forest side lodging options on the Lake, outstanding customer service, and always, that quintessential Tahoe vibe. Book early. Have fun. Be safe!

Relax. Enjoy. Cherish.

Calling all Families and Adventurers: Don’t miss North Lake Tahoe this Spring!

April 11, 2023 | Jill Amen

With nearly record snow pack, its time to experience the best Spring ski season North Lake Tahoe has had in years. If there was too much snow to navigate a few months ago, you will not want to miss out now. With that cold nip hanging in the morning and a little freeze at night, the mountain ski conditions are staying great all day long—miles of laid-back groomers, wide-open terrain and 40 and 50+ degree bluebird days. This is the season to be no place else, but…here!

Springtime in Tahoe also means the sun shines a little higher and brighter, making those longer days a time for even more inspiration. After a record day of hot laps (perhaps), there is nothing quite like springtime après on that sun-drenched deck or patio to soak it all up. This is where goggle tans, crazy hats, Hawaiian shirts and jean shorts make the mountain even more colorful. Don’t forget yours!

Ski through May and Beyond!

Palisades Tahoe, April 2023

And, the good news is Palisades Tahoe and Alpine will be open through the end of May; Alpine will remain open weekends in June and for 4th of July. Couple that with some awesome mid-week lodging specials at Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort, and the fun factor gets even better—on and off the slopes. 

Family-Ready Adventures

For families with younger aged children who want a break from the snow, try this awesome, but lesser known experience: A trip to the Animal Ark Wild Life Sanctuary, just outside of Reno in the Nevada foothills. A 38-acre wildlife sanctuary and loving home for injured and non-releasable wildlife as well as some of the most exotic species from across the globe. Check for hours of operation before heading out. 

For something a little closer to your Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort basecamp, try an afternoon of lake watching on our serene and 275 foot beach. You will also find peaceful exploration while sledding, snowshoeing and hiking on nicely groomed trails directly behind our Resort at the North Tahoe Vista Regional Park

Sledding on the Beach

Try Something Out of Your Ordinary

If you are looking for outdoor experiences, we’ve got you covered there too! It’s not just a Winter paradise for skiers and snowboarders, but also one of the best ways to experience the serene beauty of Lake Tahoe. Try a snowy hike, snowshoe or XC ski adventure just behind Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort in our 124 acre North Tahoe Regional Park—the ultimate playground for Winter activities with dozens of groomed trails and breathtaking views of our surrounding mountains and Lake Tahoe. Connect with nature and enjoy the Winter landscape, escaping the hustle and bustle of the ski resorts.

If you just want to relax and enjoy the scenic beauty, simply walk outside your door at Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort to Lake Watch, gazing at its clear stillness, reflecting the snow-capped mountains and peaks. So serene and peaceful, you will simply escape into the moment. If you want to hit the road consider the scenic Tahoe Rim Drive, taking you on a tour around the lake with stunning natural beauty at every turn.

Venture a little further to historic mining towns in the region including Virginia City offering fabled gold rush history and thousands of year old petroglyphs along with breathtaking views of the Carson Range, just outside Carson City in Nevada. The petroglyphs might require a 4-wheel drive or a special tour, but well worth the trip.

Sharing Lake Tahoe: Responsible Tourism and Stewardship

January 11, 2023 | Jill Amen

Sharing Lake Tahoe: Beach view from Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort in Winter 2023

Lake Tahoe is breathtaking. The largest alpine lake in North America, both the lake and surrounding region are an important economic, recreational and ecological resource. As a destination, Lake Tahoe is easily accessible, offering year-round entertainment and recreation, and it’s world-famous. In other words, Tahoe’s crystal clear waters, stunning mountains, forests and year-round outdoor recreational activities, including 14 ski resorts are what attracts millions of people a year. With that comes sharing Lake Tahoe: Responsible Tourism and Stewardship.

Environmental Health

Mule Deer, North Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe is vibrant with life; home to a variety of fish including rainbow trout, brown trout, kokanee salmon and mackinaw. Surrounding areas are rich in wildlife; black bears, mule deer, coyotes, bobcats, mountain lions, beavers, martens and a variety of birds are visible and live among us.

Although there are many aspects to our region’s environmental health, human populations are by far the biggest cause of concern. Development, run-off pollution, trash, increased traffic congestion, lake levels, invasive species and a huge inflow of people—all create an existential threat to our way of life. 

Year’s past, early tourists experienced over 100 feet of visibility in Lake Tahoe.  Today, the lake’s visibility is rarely 75 feet—sometimes only 20-30 feet. Last year the non-profit organization, Clean up the Lake pulled over 25,000 pounds of trash out of Lake Tahoe, including 171 tires and 4,527 aluminum cans. And, the clean up is far from over.

Fire risk remains another big threat. To clarify, fires in our region start easily and grow out of control rapidly, as evidenced by the 2021 Caldor Fire. Often started by human carelessness, fire has devastating effects for decades.

A Shared Experience

One thing is for certain: Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort shares a deep passion for our region—the lake, mountains, forests, meadows, wetlands, rivers and streams—many of which cross the resort’s property and all offer an extraordinary mountain experience. As the only family-owned and operated North Lake Tahoe Resort and hotel in North Lake Tahoe, it is firmly committed the integrity of Tahoe’s vibrant eco-system. 

Another certainty: Tourism and development will continue to grow. Vital to our economy, tourism touches the lives of all who work, live and play here. Preserving our shared destination extends to protecting the lake’s water clarity, beaches, forests and all the species that depend on it, including us. To sum it up, how we as a community—both residents and tourists—respect and grow our region will be the deciding factor in sustaining our natural wonder.

Stewardship and Responsible Tourism

The key is to balance the needs and activities of the local community with the protection and preservation of the natural environment. Above all, this includes valuing and promoting sustained and responsible tourism, recreation and resource use as a way of life.

“At Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort we are actively making efforts to lighten our steps and promote the concept of respectful and responsible, eco-tourism”, said Alex Mourelatos, General Manager. “As a result, our commitment to the concept of “silent sports” help us define what responsible tourism means. For example, sports like snowshoeing XC skiing, sledding, mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding and bird watching can all be experienced right on or near Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort. Moreover, we wish to lead by example, a culture of caring—from our employees and neighboring businesses to our guests. Consistent, positive messaging and recreational opportunities promoting this lifestyle are a commitment we all need to make in the tourism industry. Stewardship starts where we are.”

Simple Principals to Share

Leave no trace. Most importantly, visitors are encouraged to respect the natural environment and minimize their impact on it.

Be prepared. First and foremost, check road conditions and prepare before heading up the mountain. 

Public transportation. Most Tahoe visitors arrive by car and rely on it their entire visit. However, visitors should be encouraged to choose low-impact transit options include shared free transit (TART), public buses, express shuttles to and from Reno, ski shuttles and free night shuttles as well as bike-friendly routes.  Another option is Park-and-ride, which is becoming more accessible and something we all can do. Finally, the best thing about taking transit is the ability to sit back and view the most breathtaking scenery. Check out transit details and schedules: www.TahoeTruckeeTransit.com .

Support local businesses. In brief, choosing and supporting locally-owned businesses and organizations that are committed to environmental sustainability can help support the local community and economy.

Engage. It’s part of the experience. For example, get to know your community even if just visiting. Many people are happy to share their knowledge visitors get the most out of their trip.

Respect local regulations. Lake Tahoe is located in a sensitive alpine ecosystem. As a result, it’s important to follow local regulations and guidelines such as fire bans and boating/fishing regulations in order to protect the environment.

Leave with inspiration and stories to share. Share your love for Lake Tahoe with your friends and family; For instance, share photos and stories that encourage others to appreciate and respect our environment.

Traveler’s Responsibility Pledge

To sum it up, take the Traveler Responsibility Pledge. Before embarking on a journey to our Lake Tahoe region, please take the Traveler Responsibility Pledge; a commitment to preserving the natural wonders of the Sierra, which means responsible tourism and stewardship for Lake Tahoe region.

Effective stewardship of the Lake Tahoe region requires the cooperation and support of all members of the community including local governments, businesses and individuals. Likewise, practicing stewardship means we all participate—locals and visitors alike. We all play an important role in ensuring Lake Tahoe remains a treasured destination for years to come.

Visiting North Lake Tahoe in the Winter: Be Prepared for Almost Anything!

December 20, 2022 | Jill Amen

North Lake Tahoe, our premier winter destination is in full swing with resorts fully open and the holiday vibe upon us. Tis the season for high-energy sports, winter adventures and Après ski excitement—certainly something inviting for everyone in North Lake Tahoe. Cozy up, venture out—or both!  At Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort, North Lake Tahoe’s premier lodging experience, we’ve got you covered!

Whether exploring by ski, board, sled or snowshoe traveling up to Lake Tahoe, from almost anywhere in the Winter, takes preparation. Even with Tahoe’s laid-back atmosphere and vibrant bluebird days, we all have to take Winter seriously! Sh…t happens, and planning ahead makes all the difference. 

Before Heading up the Mountain

First, check the road and weather reports. Even with clear skies weather changes quickly in snow-country, and driving to Tahoe means 4-wheel, all-wheel drive or chains. If chains are the only option, they are an absolute necessity; know how and where to put them on. Road checks mean business during storms and ice. Ladder cables are not allowed in the Tahoe area. Some check areas have professionals who can installI, charging around $30; $15 to remove. Driving on chairs means observing a 25 to 30 mph speed limit. When installing pull completely off the roadway to the right as to not block or be endangered by traffic.

Gassing up is a smart idea, or more than one reason: Gas prices are higher up in the Tahoe area and road conditions, accidents and traffic may mean extra time on the road.

Supplies

In addition to snow chains, food and water are essentials for any vehicle in the mountains. There is a caveat there that we will get to shortly. Other items should include an ice scraper, warm gloves and jacket, snow boots and even a blanket in case if stuck on the road. Be prepared for the chill—think survival if conditions go from flurries to blizzard.

Essential Snow and Ice Driving Tips

Before driving in snow and ice ensure a is snow-ready trip. Check wiper blades, tire pressure and tread. Carry a small snow shovel—plows and tows aren’t necessarily readily available when conditions get dicey. 

Visibility means removing snow and ice from windows, mirrors, lights, turn signals and license plates. Keeping distance between vehicles, passing with sufficient distance and clearance, and driving slowly avoiding sudden braking, acceleration and quick turns all mean road safety. Applying steady pressure on ABS-equipped vehicles or pumping the brakes if necessary on non-ABS vehicles will help avoid slides and skids. If a slide occurs steer in direction of the slide, slowly removing the foot from accelerator.

Navigating During Storms

Deviating from main roads or relying on GPS, where roads have not yet been plowed or maintained may mean digging out of snow banks—at best. And, In blizzard and high wind conditions, even if a highway is open the ski resort may be closed. Check before.

Getting stuck can lead to traffic congestion, greater delays and difficulty for snow-removal equipment to clear the area. Always watch carefully for snow removal equipment. Locals, visitors snd safety authorities all benefit from common sense and courtesy. Share the roads responsibly.

Transportation Options

Try alternative forms of transportation when in Tahoe. For a safe, efficient and accessible transport in North Lake Tahoe, check out TART, Tahoe Truckee Area Regional Transit. Its fun, easy and gets you where you want to go without the hassle of parking and harsh conditions. 

On the Mountain

Every year mountain adventurers go missing. Skiers and snowboarders are mandated to stay within resort boundaries and advised to use caution, respect conditions and watch for avalanche warnings. Sierra Avalanche Center provides avalanche forecasting based on weather, avalanche and snowpack conditions on its website.Its aways a good idea to use the buddy system and share whereabouts—with apps such as Find My Phone or a simple text.  

Bear Beware

It’s true bears hibernate, but Tahoe bears have their own schedule.  Due to an abundant amount of food from various human sources, many bears are on the move throughout the year.  Bear intrusion stories are more than cautionary— bears are also smart; if they can smell it they can find it!  Keep vehicle and residence doors locked and secure. Use precautions when tossing trash; bear boxes save bear’s lives.

Journeying into snow country can be immensely breathtaking and rewarding. It can also mean freezing, punishing conditions. Please be prepared and safe.

Now, it’s time to get on that mountain! Start your next Winter adventure stay at Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort. And, the best time is right now to book directly for exceptional multi-night discounts and our no worries, no stress MLRTahoe Guarantee: Free, fully-refundable cancellation with a 72 hour heads up.
