Hi all,

It’s finally done, and I invite all of you to visit my blog’s new home which is now integrated with my website, so you can now ‘One Stop Shop’ for a plethora of information all in one place!

First Quarter 2017 Real Estate Market Stats Are Here!   Leave a comment

 

2-dONNER-SPRING-2017

 

Winter is refusing to go quietly this year. I recently read that our snow pack is 300 % over average and Lake Tahoe was a mere few inches below it maximum legal rim. That’s pretty amazing. In an effort to keep the lake below the maximum, the flood gates at Tahoe City are spewing out water, and that’s in addition to the run off from snow melt when we do get a warm day. Local alerts warn people to stay away from the Truckee River, as her waters are raging and bike trails are under water. And all that snow pack hasn’t even melted yet!

The Billy Dutton Uphill   Leave a comment

This Sunday April 23rd is the Billy Dutton Uphill. It is tougher then it looks, and it looks pretty damn tough. The event climbs up the Mountain Run at Squaw Valley. It’s just around five kilometers to the top, a piece of cake for a cross country skier or runner right? Well, wrong, because it’s 2000 feet of climbing. It’s hard, but it’s also spectacularly beautiful to ski the Squaw terrain in the early morning, enjoy an awesome party at the top with an always cool group of local folks, and then enjoy the view from the tram as you head back down the hill. Or you can be one of the truly adventurous and join a few crazies who ski back down the hill on their skinnies.

The race is run in memory of Billy Dutton, one of the founders of the Tahoe Nordic Search and Rescue. He was a Squaw Valley kid who used to like to ski up the mountain on his classic skis before succumbing to cancer several decades ago. Members of his family join the event every year.

The Billy Dutton attracts cross country skiers, and snowshoers/runners and has different prize categories for each. A few runners have come close to winning the event every year, and are often in the lead until the several hundred yard downhill just before the finish. The Billy Dutton is a fundraiser for Far West Nordic’s Junior program. The party at High Camp includes an excellent silent auction and raffle prizes, as well as music and food and a chance to catch your breath while enjoying the amazing view.

Every skier or runner should try the Billy Dutton at least once. I’ve done it about five times, even though every time I do it I wonder why I’m doing this to myself once again. The trick of course is to ski slow and steady, which has never been my strong suit. I go way too fast out of the gate, followed by leaning over my poles gasping for breath. Whatever your technique, it’s a true iconic Tahoe event that should definitely be on every cross country skier or runners bucket list.
