Xterra Lake Tahoe, the off-road triathlon, returns to Incline Village this weekend, and I’m signed up. To say I’ve got a few butterflies is an understatement. I have never done a full-distance triathlon before. I have only done a short distance and a relay. This will be my first full-distance triathlon, and it will include: a 1500-meter swim in Lake Tahoe, a 22-mile mountain bike ride, and a 10k trail run in succession.
THERE ARE FEW PEOPLE that exemplify the Tahoe region and the reasons so many people are drawn to it in the way that Aaron James does. Aaron, or as he is far better known, Elko, is an accidental namesake of the rural town in Nevada which he grew up near. Elko moved to Tahoe in the fall of ‘98 to attend Sierra Nevada College. Upon moving here, he was almost exclusively referred to as the kid from Elko and the name stuck. He was studying ski resort management and also coaching the SNC ski team. Skiing was, and still is absolutely his ‘thing’, but school was less so.
Lofty prices, low inventory, and a fast rising cost of living are housing market factors that are not unique to Incline Village. While these conditions exist nationwide, additional impacts from second home owners now occupying properties year-round and the beauty magnet that is Lake Tahoe place additional strain on buyers. As interest rates continue to climb the number of listings are increasing, some with price cuts, although a seller’s market persists in Incline Village and Crystal Bay.

My all-time favorite thing to do in the summer is to listen to music in an outdoor setting, even better if I can dance. July kicks off the summer music season in Incline Village. No matter where you go, whether it’s the beach or the Classical Tahoe Pavilion on the campus of UNR, formerly SNU, you are bound to find something you like.
Start the 4th of July weekend with TOCCATA’s Red, White & Blue “Salute to America” concert with Broadway, opera, and patriotic music at the Chateau at 7pm on Friday, July 1! The Tahoe Symphony Orchestra, founded by Conductor James Rawie and his wife Nancy, perform concerts year-round at many venues in the region. If you have never been to one of their concerts, you are in for a treat!
