Pack for any possibility
When I was last there (over a Labor Day weekend), the weather was warm during the day and cool/cold at night. Recommend that you bring shorts and long sleeve shirt for the morning/afternoon and sweats, long pants for the evening.
Golfing the North Shore
While there are a few golf courses outside of Truckee, Kings Beach, Squaw Valley and Northstar (to name a few), the two courses in Incline Village are wonderful.
The views are spectacular, the greens are typically in good condition, and the air is invigorating.
Neither course is easy, and both are full of hills and dog-legs and bends. But the Championship course would be the longer and flatter of the two. The Mountain Course (used to be called the Executive Course) will test your abilities to hit from various elevations in relation to the greens.
A word of advise, the air is thin... so the ball will go a bit farther than you might be used to. Remember you are playing near to 7,000 ft above sea level (more than 2100m)!! Bring your own or rent...
I believe a cart is now mandatory due to too many flatlanders getting altitude related illnesses and over exertion.
Mountain course starts at ~$35 for twilight (after 3pm) in low season
Championship course starts at ~$99 for twilight (after 3pm) in low season
Nice Mt. Village
"My First Home Away From Home"
This is the first place I lived when I moved away from my parents house in 1975.
I visited some friends already living here around the time of my 21st birthday. I was injured waterskiing and returned home to find myself unable to do my job. I received about 8 weeks of disability and found my job unbearable when I returned to work. So after about 3 days back at work I quit and moved to Incline.
I lived on the North Shore until 1980 when I move to Park City UT.
Incline Village @ Lake Tahoe
We took a mini-vacation to the Incline Village area in 1999 to play in a softball tournament over Labor Day Weekend. This area is so beautiful and there are so many things to do in addition to skiing. You can go camping, hiking, swimming, boating etc. Following is a brief overview of the area.
Since the 1990 census was taken, the Incline Village/Crystal Bay area has experienced a 12.67 percent growth, going from 7,148 to 8,054, according to information provided by the University of Nevada, Reno, Bureau of Business and Economic Research. But it has changed dramatically since the 1800s when logging was the main reason for being there. Now people come here to ski, hike, bike, open a small business or work in one of the many businesses that fill the small town.
Tourism is the operative word in town with the area's stores, restaurants and roads packed with people during the peak summer months. Businesses range from restaurants of all types to accounting firms, public relations and advertising companies, hair stylists, doctors, lawyers and any other profession you might find in a larger area.
There are 6,797 housing units on the North Shore with 25.7 percent of them being occupied by owners and 20.5 by renters. And almost one-fifth of the population is between the ages of 35 to 44. Nearly half of the population is between the ages of 25 and 54. (Information provided by the Incline Village Tourist Bureau)
