Tahoe U blog Summer Weekend Guide

Summer is just getting started but the activities are already stacking up. After a gorgeous kickoff last week, we're looking forward to this weekend's round of summer fun. Here's our Summer Weekend Guide picks in Truckee and around the lake.


Tough Mudder Tahoe 2018 | 6/9 - 6/10 

This event is known to get a little dirty. The Northstar location is perfectly designed for the obstacle course race made to test your endurance and will power. Not for the faint of heart, but for the tough mudders looking to "crush" the elements. Image via
