The Tex-Mex food was very tasty and fresh. Good flavor. They make the tortillas fresh as you watch. Can either sit in outside patio or inside.

The course is a beautiful mountain course up against surrounding mountains. Late spring brings views of snow capped mountains.

Course is challenging especially if not played before. Greens were a little slow and difficult to judge but in good condition.

Just a beautiful place to play and enjoy the scenery and less expensive than Edgewood, maybe prettier.

WOW!! What a view. View overlooking South Lake Tahoe and Stateline and whole lake. 3000 feet above lake level. Gondola ride is fun and not scary since it stays at the tree line mostly. View at midstation is spectacular. Tickets are a little pricey at $20 each though.

Pack a lunch and eat it at the top where there are picnic tables. You can also go hiking around ski area.

We did the Mark Twain tour. There is an actor who plays Mark Twain. Some comments not appropriate for kids. Two hour ride with 30 minutes in Emerald Bay on paddle wheel boat. I found out afterwards there is a more kid friendly tour with Tahoe Tessie and is more catered to kids.
