“From Small Town to World Cup”
North Shore’s Crystal Bay Casino is opening the doors to their concert venues this April, nearly 11 months after their last show. They will be opening the doors to their Crown Room for seated concerts with limited capacity. Events in the Crown Room prior to COVID-19 were primarily standing room only, and allowed for larger crowds.
After several months of being unable to host events or concerts within the casino, many are eager to gain back some of the normalcy that came from attending concerts at the popular Crown Room venue within the Crystal Bay Casino.

On March 7, 2021, the Diamond Peak Ski Team kicked off their virtual auction, an online substitute for what would be the 12th annual "Ullr Fest" that the ski team hosts but of course was limited due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. The auction will be offering a plethora of items like prime parking at Diamond Peak and a day of wake surfing on Lake Tahoe to the winners with the highest bid. It's a familiar story these days, the effects of the pandemic taking a financial toll on the smaller organizations, yet the Diamond Peak Ski Team is showing how to prevail.
