Warren Miller’s Line of Descent

For the past 68 years, Warren Miller has produced phenomenal winter films that are released each fall season.  Warren Miller himself is now 93 years old and does not have a part in the films, but Warren Miller Entertainment still produces one feature-length ski film per year.  As early as 1956, Miller used to rent show halls near ski resorts so that he could film the next year’s footage during the day and show the current film in the evening.  Now the films are shown all over the world from Australia to China, in thousands of locations big and small and can even be downloaded and streamed online.

This year is no exception and the Warren Miller event is coming to a venue near you!  Don’t miss the premier of "Line Of Descent".  Get fired up for the season by joining in the excitement at one of the public shows- there is no better way to get ready for the epic winter ahead.

Big Truck Day

One of the best days of the year for young boys and girls is coming up this weekend.  The highly anticipated 8th Annual Big Truck Day is taking over the Town Corp Yard located off of Donner Pass Road, just north of downtown on Stockrest Springs Road. The town has gathered a fleet of large machinery for the event including a plow, groomer, crane, school bus, fire engine, police car, helicopter, ambulance, digger, dump truck, police car and much more.  Kids get the chance to get up close, sit in the drivers seat, honk horns, pull levers and learn all about these large working machines.  

Make sure the kids wear clothes that can get dirty, because they won't want to miss the giant sand hill that is in one of the huge garages. Kids can spend hours climbing up and rolling down this massive pile of fun.

The Truckee Lions Club is providing a BBQ lunch, a bake sale full of delicious treats and music by local bands.  Smokey the Bear will also be on site for photos, high fives, handshakes and fire prevention tips. Big Truck Day is an event that the kids look forward to all year, hope to see you there.

What’s New at the Northstar Village?

An array of shops, restaurants, and activities for all make Northstar one of the top family resort destinations in the United States. In the winter, the 9,000 square foot ice rink is the centerpiece for the Northstar Village experience. Surrounded by seating areas and fire pits, families will enjoy a central gathering place with food, drinks and music. The Village is home to some signature winter events such as Noel Nights in December and the Riparoo (the mountain's mascot dog) parade every Saturday at 3:30pm that ends in s'mores for all.  When visiting the Village at Northstar for another epic winter, be on the lookout for two new tenants in the Village. One retail shop and one new restaurant. Both are sure to add to the dynamic Village lifestyle.  

Lululemon is setting up shop in the Village and will be located next to Starbucks. This well known athletic brand has a storefront that boasts easy access from the Tahoe Yoga and Wellness space. Grab a new pair of yoga pants or a warm base layer and go get some exercise.

Yamakai Fish & Sushi Co. has taken over the Mikuni space on the north side of the ice rink. Yamakai opened it’s doors in June and has been receiving rave reviews ever since. Described as family-friendly Hawaiian and sushi fusion, this restaurant will appeal to a wide range of tastes. The sushi menu has a great variety of options like the "Open Snow Roll" and the portions are enough to satisfy any appetite. Also check out the Hawaiian burger, New York steak and Wicked Chicken, there is something for everyone at Yamakai.  
Yamakai will also be a great apré location with a full bar and creative cocktails. Happy hour is Wednesday through Friday from 3pm – 5pm and has a different theme each day. Wednesday features whiskey and sliders, Thursday has tacos & tequila and Sunday Funday has a happy hour menu available all day.
Don’t miss out on dessert, the menu is always changing. Irresistible treats like a tempered Twinkie with ice cream and chocolate shavings or hand made ice cream sandwich with green tea ice cream are the types of things you'll find at Yamakai.
