Truckee Luxury Homes

Truckee Luxury homes are primarily owned by second home owners living in Northern CA. The majority live in the Bay Area and Silicon Valley and are high income families enjoying the all season outdoor activities that can be found in the Truckee/Tahoe area. The most famous landmarks when entering Truckee are Donner Pass, at the summit and then Donner Lake as you approach Truckee, via Interstate 80, at an elevation of roughly 6500’. The 80, as our LA friends would call it, provides quick access to the Truckee area from the Bay Area and is certainly the key feature that makes Truckee such an attractive vacation area. Owners and visitors can make the commute in as little as 3 hours in fair weather conditions. Not so in winter storm conditions – drivers need to review Caltrans highway maps and conditions to avoid long driving times. Caltrans information is relatively sophisticated with cameras located all along the interstate, copies of road conditions messages that are on the actual road signs, colored sections that indicate speed of the traffic and indicators for chain control and accidents. At over 6000’, Truckee is definitely a mountain town with an upscale attitude. Fine dining, high end shopping bike trails, hiking trails including the nearby Sierra Crest trail, beautiful golf courses, fishing, boating, kayaking/paddleboarding and more are available in the summer and of course the winter skiing sports which Truckee is famous for. Things slow down a bit during the “shoulder seasons” between winter and spring and fall and winter. Mid October pretty much defines the start of the fall shoulder season because the golf courses are closed down and readied for winter - and the weather starts to get a bit nippy slowing some of the water sports. So, we then wait for the snow so we can launch our winter ski season. Thanksgiving used to be a bit sketchy for snow but now most resorts up here have snow-making equipment to help launch the season around Thanksgiving. Then we have the busy Christmas and the Feb Presidents Day weekend (which is supposedly the busiest weekend of the year). Then after a great ski season we enter the next shoulder season which is late April to early June and then we start all over again. Fun!
