The leaves are changing and the temperatures are dropping into the 30s each night in Olympic Valley. Fall has arrived and, with it, lots of amazing adventures. Whether it’s simply checking out an event or shopping at a festival in the Village at Palisades Tahoe or checking off some exciting items from your Tahoe bucket list, this beautiful area has so much to do as the colors change and the leaves fall. Take a look at our Fall 2022 Tahoe Adventure Bucket List to see if there’s something you can check off your list.

Paddle Lake Tahoe with a Unique View

If you haven’t tried it already, the warm afternoons of September and October are the perfect time to rent a see-through kayak. You can enjoy the colors of the trees and the lake from a truly unique vantage. Lake Tahoe is known for its clarity and one of the best ways to see that for yourself is with a transparent kayak. Clearly Tahoe offers tours launching from their Clearly Explorer boat so you can get out and experience some of the iconic sites along Lake Tahoe’s shores. Or, if you want to kayak on your own, you can rent single or double clear kayaks in Kings Beach from Wild Society.

Family Ropes Course Adventure

With lots of ropes course options in North Lake Tahoe, including right in the Olympic Valley, this area is the perfect place to take your family bonding to new heights. The Tahoe City Treetop Park is open twice weekly through October. Just as long as everyone in your group is over 6 years old and 49” tall, your whole family can explore the 2 beginner, 6 intermediate & 2 advanced courses spread out over 97 Tree Platforms and 27 zip lines. If anyone in your group would prefer to stick closer to the ground, there are several trails for them to follow the group and take in the action, along with leaf peeping along the way. Why not spend one of your Tahoe fall days among the trees?

Did you know that North Lake Tahoe has 14 golf courses to choose from? Explore this beautiful area while improving your game. Or, you can choose to stick close to our home in this gorgeous valley full of fall colors. Olympic Valley golfers are spoiled with our very own links style course – The Links at Squaw Creek. Take in views of Palisades Tahoe on the Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed course that was laid out to preserve the natural wetlands and wildlife habitat. After your round, grab a beer and a burger at Sandy’s Pub in the Resort at Squaw Creek. Cheers to fall!
