When you live in one of the most beautiful spots on Earth, there is a magnetism that makes you want to keep the body fit and mind sharp. Fortunately for those of us who live here, or visit, there are literally endless opportunities for all ages to enjoy our piece of paradise.
With health and wellness at top of mind, we are privileged to be home to a thriving medical community with numerous practitioners, a Urgent and Family Care Clinic, and Incline Village Community Hospital. The Incline Veterinary Hospital is here to take care of your furry friends as well.
A Caring Community
For those who love to volunteer, welcome home! Our list of non-profit organizations defines the commitment our residents have to their ‘home sweet home.’ From local
associations to international chapters (we have two Rotary Clubs!), there is always a need for helping those who need it most. Most of the clubs have extra-curricular activities that offer social events, educational workshops, and indoor and outdoor events.
Wrapped in and around our 20+ miles on the north shore of Lake Tahoe each season unveils its own playground for all ages to enjoy. The following information provides highlights of the more popular activities. For complete information, stop by the D.G. Menchetti Visitors Center located at 969 Tahoe Boulevard.
In the wintertime, Diamond Peak Ski Resort offers family-friendly slopes with services that are void of high prices, overcrowding, and long lift lines. Known for its ‘jaw-dropping’ views of Lake Tahoe, exceptional grooming, and child and adult ski school, the resort is just the beginning of what our winter wonderland has to offer.
Just a few miles up Nevada State Highway 431 is the popular “Sheep Flats.” This expansive meadow provides access to some of the most scenic and open terrain for snowmobiling, cross-county and backcountry skiing, snowshoeing, snow biking, and sledding.
Come springtime, the High Sierra continues to define our region’s iconic namesake as “America’s Favorite Playground.” It’s a spring skiing haven that offers crystal clear blue skies for snowboarders and skiers alike. It’s a time where the winter snowmelt fills our rivers, streams, and lakes that open up for some the best fishing and kayaking in the USA.
In the summer, Lake Tahoe is a mecca of mountain fun. From the peaks of the Sierra to the Cobalt blue waters of the Lake, private sandy beaches, and all the green in-between, there are sports of all sorts to keep fit and having fun in the great outdoors. Golf enthusiasts can spend the entire summer on the links of our award-winning Incline Village Championship and Mountain Golf Courses. The list of well-maintained facilities continues with the Incline Recreation Center, Tennis Center, Skatepark, Disc Golf Course, Bike Park, Bocce Ball Park, Fitness Trail, and several ballfields and playgrounds for all to enjoy.
When the trees begin to turn, the fall season welcomes a quieter time at the Lake where hiking, biking, fishing, and hunting top the list of ‘things to do’ during this magnificently colorful time of the year.
Mindfulness and Massage
Although the location of our community naturally summons us to sit back and reflect on its beauty, there are many health and wellness entrepreneurs ready at our beckoning call to help our bodies find peace of mind. Among the list is the prestigious Hyatt Stillwater Spa and Salon, Aloha Spa Tahoe, Incline Massage and Body Works, San Soma, Skin Deep, Roam Wyld Tahoe, and many others. In addition, there are several chiropractic and physical therapy businesses located within our active community.
No matter what the season, there’s a natural reason to take advantage of what life is all about throughout our mountain community.
