The Wall Street Journal has named Truckee, CA as one of the Coolest, Under-the-Radar ski towns in the U.S.!
The media giant had this to say about the town:
A few miles inland from the north shore of Lake Tahoe, Truckee is about a 15-minute drive from the major Sierra Nevada areas such as Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows and Northstar, and about 30 minutes from Homewood Mountain Resort. Unsurprisingly, thanks to its location, this old logging town has morphed into a sporty tourist center over the years. These days it’s better equipped to wine and dine those tourists. The farm-to-table ethos rules at Truckee Philosophy, specializing in sous-vide meats and colorful salads (10412 Donner Pass Rd., truckeephilosophy.com), while beer aficionados can bar crawl between Truckee Brewing Company, FiftyFifty Brewing and Alibi Ale Works. Last year, the latter opened a second location, dubbed the Truckee Public House (10069 Bridge St., alibialeworks.com), that offers live music and chimichurri beef nachos. As for accommodations, the Cedar House Sport Hotel is a decidedly modern take on the rustic mountain lodge (from $180 a night, cedarhousesporthotel.com).
