Travel Tips from people who've been to Truckee
Truckee is located on the north side of Lake Tahoe, California. Truckee is a great place to stage a ski trip from because it has numerous nearby ski mountains and several ski and snowboard centers like Porters. The food is relatively good in Truckee and it is a town where many people pass through on their way east from the Bay Area.

One of the greatest places on earth!!! Truckee is great for the outdoor types and the non outdoor types as well! There are sooo many ski resorts in the general area that finding a spa and a nice room is not difficult.  There is camping, boating, fishing, hiking, skiing, etc. etc. and it is absolutely beautiful!!!

Rent a private home in Truckee for a superior snow experience! Truckee is close to all the Lake Tahoe skiing destinations and you get better accomodations than the hotels near the slopes. Just make sure that on old houses, you leave the water running for a trickle or else your pipes might freeze.
