PEOPLE

In Lake Tahoe, we are a community with an undeniable connection to our little corner of the universe.

Outside in Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe is home-base for world-renowned explorers and athletes. There's a good chance the guy or gal slinging your latté also sends V12 boulder problems.

THE WORD

We’re inspired by the place and the place inspires some who can articulate it through the written word. We share these writers and their stories.

"Culture is the arts elevated to a set of beliefs."

Thomas Wolfe

A mountain culture that masters the fine art of living. Welcome to this place we call home. Meet the local artists, individuals, businesses and events that define our unique mountain culture and embody Tahoe's creative and entrepreneurial spirit.
