Ice Skate Tahoe City!   Leave a comment

The newest addition to the ice skating options available for visitors and locals at Lake Tahoe is the Tahoe City Winter Sports Park, located in the center of Tahoe City. The park, the summer home of the Tahoe City Golf Course, provides groomed cross country ski trails for beginning skiers and snowshoers, as well as a sledding hill. Now an ice skating rink has been added to the mix for this coming winter.

Folks in Tahoe City have been pining for a place to skate for years. In fact, when the Tahoe City Golf Course was purchased by the Tahoe City Public Utility District a few years ago, “ice skating was by far the number one requested recreation activity the public wanted to see there,” said Cindy Gustafson, TCPUD General Manager.

The 4000 square foot rink is set to open in mid-December. Skate rentals and lessons will be available. Like the ski trails, the skating rink will be managed by Tahoe Cross Country Ski Area. The park will be open seven days a week. Skating will be available from noon until 9 pm on weekdays, and until 10 pm on weekends. Skiing hours will be from 10 am to 5 pm.

In addition to the skating rink, another addition this year is a new year round restaurant on site, Cafe Zenon. According to owner Suzanne Nguyen the Cafe “will be serving the food I grew up eating and recipes that my Mom passed on to me.” Which will include Vietnamese dishes and sophisticated pup food. Menu items include Vietnamese French dip and Pho, butter seared prawns and for breakfast chicken fried steak and biscuits and gravy. They will be serving breakfast on the weekends and lunch and dinner every day. The restaurant also includes a classic bar that will be serving cocktails and coffee drinks.

Looks like their website is still a work in progress: 253.b9d.myftpupload.com

As a long time resident, I remember when Tahoe House was an actual dinner house restaurant. Somewhere along the line, they decided to make it an awesome coffee house, bakery with a Bavarian flair and specialty market, and it’s been a must stop at, go to place ever since. Recently they’ve spent some time remodeling; updating the facade and making the spot more wheelchair accessible, but it still has the same great coffee, sweets, sandwiches and other various noshes to please every palette. Sporting an offering of specialty wines and their own signature brand of relishes, dressings and sauces in addition to tasty treats from around the world, it’s a great place to find those hard to find gourmet items in addition to grabbing a hearty sandwich to take on your local travels around the lake.

Hang out in the sun in front of the building, grab a seat by the window – and on cold, snowy days, sit on the sofa by the fireplace. Featuring free WiFi, you can check on your email, have a meeting or get some work done on your laptop while you sip a warm cup of joe.

Be sure to get a Sacher Torte to go or the addictive raspberry pockets, among many other goodies.
