Travel Tips for Truckee

The great outdoors

by Wormily

Brave the cold of winter & get your blood flowing on the slopes of Tahoe. Go snow-shoeing or crosscountry skiing for peace & tranquility or take a snowmobile tour or sled-dog ride for excitement.
If you are an intermediate or above skier or rider take a free lesson at the top of Mt Pluto 10:15am & 2:15pm weekdays at Northstar at Tahoe. For the best views, ski Homewood or Diamond Peak. If you are a stud, Ski Squaw.
(or think you are....hee hee) The little critters.
I'm probably the only local who actually loves the squirrils, raccoons & coyotes. O.K. I don't feed them (they carry the plague) but if I see one I have to squeal like a school girl & give it a name (Nigel is the Grey squirrill who lives in out front yard) then watch what ever it is up to until it notices me & runs away!

"Truckee's Intro"

There's a great deal of history about our fair town. We started as a railroad stop, and grew into a large lumber and ice exporter. The fact that Truckee is frequently the nation’s coldest location is considered a tongue-in-cheek joke among locals because those relatively low temperatures usually occur from late spring through early fall.
Compared to other major mountain ranges in the world, the Sierra Nevada has a mild winter climate, but during the summer months, a combination of climate and topography drops Truckee’s overnight temperatures below most other communities in the country.
Most tourists come here in the winter, for the excitement of extreme sports. But the majority of our commerce arrives just before Memorial Day, and leaves clear into September. During that time, most of our snowmelt has left, the lakes and resevoirs become open to boaters and the like, and the mountains tend to offer more activities if you think on it.

Basically, Truckee is set up into three types of groups. There are the latino-americans who account for about 30% of the town. Then, there are the middle-class locals; construction workers, and diehard "locals" who enjoy everything and anything Truckee offers. Finally, we have the second-home buyers. So far, they tend to make up 15% of Truckee.

Crime wise, were a really safe town. We have a string of deaths along the years, but its either from nature or old age. When circumstances do arise, we have three different police districts to use. Since our incorporation a couple years ago, we can draw upon all three agencies: Truckee PD, Nevada County Sheriffs, and the CHP. But for the most part, our town is pretty quiet.
