Tough Mudders grind through Tahoe Fall challenge Sept. 28-29

September 23rd, 2013

Fall at Lake Tahoe is a season known for bringing out the inner-competitor. Last week’s Ironman competition is followed by this weekend’s running of the Tough Mudder at Northstar California Resort, Sept. 28-29.

Founded in 2010, Tough Mudder bills itself as “Probably the Toughest Event on the Planet” with each Mudder taking on endurance challenges that test toughness, fitness, strength, stamina, mental grit and teamwork.

Tough Mudder isn't about personal records, it's about teamwork.

Tough Mudder isn’t about personal records, it’s about teamwork.

Costume-clad and fired up, Tough Mudders run through a series 10 to 12 miles of hardcore obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test a competitor’s all around strength, stamina, mental grit and camaraderie. Featuring wide runs, steep terrain and plenty of mud, Northstar offers an ideal location for Tough Mudder Tahoe Fall 2013.

If you’re planning to participate or just to watch, Granlibakken offers several lodging options where you’re guaranteed a nutritious carbo-fueled breakfast and a good night’s sleep before taking on the endurance challenge.

With the most innovative courses, over one million inspiring participants worldwide to date, and more than $5 million raised for the Wounded Warrior Project, Tough Mudder bills itself as the premier adventure challenge series in the world.

But it doesn’t take itself too seriously, either. After competitors have gone through it all, there’s a mob of folks and a live band waiting at the finish line with beers in hand, food on the barbecue and a full-on party to celebrate those participating in the toughest organized human event ever created.

Veterans say it is more than an event: Tough Mudder is a way of thinking. By running a Tough Mudder challenge, participants say they’ve unlocked a true sense of accomplishment while discovering a deep camaraderie with fellow runners. At Tough Mudder, participants don’t get through it alone. It takes the help of fellow Mudders to cheer ’em on and push them through.

Tough Mudder by the Numbers:

  • 78 percent of participants finish a Tough Mudder
  • 80 percent of Tough Mudder participants do it as part of a team
  • 1,000-plus participants have the Tough Mudder logo permanently tattooed on their body
  • 3.5 hours is the average time it takes to finish a Tough Mudder course which is usually between 10 to 12 miles.

It’s never too early or too late to start preparing for next year’s Tough Mudder. Granlibakken offers High Altitude Training options featuring cycling, biking, hiking and its Treetop Adventure Park, recently voted No. 1 Tahoe activity by readers.

Recently voted No. 1 Tahoe activity by readers, the course is not only a hoot to go through, but it definitely gets the heart pumping, especially if you’re competing with others.

Triathalon training? Lake Tahoe is a mile from Granlibakken. Lap swimming is available in the Granlibakken pool open daily from 10 to 10, early morning swim times can be arranged in advance. Donner Lake is a good spot for bikers to ride up old highway 40 and then back to the Donner for a long distance swim (Donner Lake is a little warmer than Tahoe). The Donner Ride is a steep and challenging ride. You can warm up with a 15 mile ride from Granlibakken to Donner Lake.

At the end of the day, get those sore muscles rubbed out nicely by treating yourself to a relaxing massage at Granlibakken Lighthouse Spa. The spa offer a variety of treatments by reservation.

Leave your laptop at home and reunite at Granlibakken with friends and family

September 10th, 2013

Connecting with family and friends has been made easier over the years thanks to social media. But there’s more than a few things websites cannot do.

Laptops cannot hug or handshake, raise a glass to propose a toast, race down a mountain on a pair of skis or zip through a challenging obstacle course set on platforms above the trees.

Sure Facebook is an important tool but nothing beats being in a room full of family and friends, sharing details and memories that usually get overlooked in our written thoughts. There’s only one true way to engage in conversation and laughter and that’s being right in the center of it, side by side and face to face.

Get your family together for a reunion at Granlibakken!

Tee up at surrounding Lake Tahoe golf courses

August 26th, 2013

Leave your slice at home and tee it up for a late summer or early fall golf outing at any number of challenging golf courses near Granlibakken.

Whether you prefer your game in morning or like to swing at it in the afternoon, a round or two of golf will stand on its own merit because even if you don’t play well, you’ll have all the benefits of spectacular scenery set against an awesome Lake Tahoe and Sierra Nevada backdrop.

Closest to Granlibakken is the Tahoe City Golf Course. This 9-hole, par 33, 2,700 yard executive golf course is the locals’ favorite and has one of the longest seasons of any course in Tahoe. Lake views are available from several holes, and if you go long on hole 2, your water hazard will be the Lake itself. This is a “good time golf course” with forgiving greens but still a challenge for the experienced golfer.

Other nearby courses are:

Old Brockway Golf Course: This 9-hole, par 35, 3,400 yard executive course in Kings Beach designed by John Duncan Dunn was home to the first Bing Crosby Golf Tournament in 1934-1935. The course is often referred to as a “Dean Martin Loop” for the fact that one can skip straight from hole 4 to hole 8, thereby quickening the pace back to the bar for a Martini. Located in the Banana Belt of North Lake Tahoe, Old Brockway is often the first to open and the last to close due to the sun exposure it receives.

Resort at Squaw Creek Golf Course: This is a classic Robert Trent Jones, Jr. course with link-styled play and frequent marsh hazards. Located at the base of Squaw Valley USA, every hole provides a magnificent view of the surrounding mountain range. The course’s signature 6th hole is an island green and stretches 155 yards from the middle Tees. 3 PGA pros on staff, valet bag-drop and caddy services make this one of the most player-friendly courses in Tahoe.

Northstar-at-Tahoe Resort Golf Course: This challenging and affordable course 18-hole par 72, 6,781 yard course designed by Robert Muir Graves is characterized by two very distinctive nines. The mountain nine is tree laden, target golf, while the meadow nine are more forgiving holes meandering through wider meadow areas. And with Tahoe’s earliest twilight rates beginning at 1 p.m. it’s popular with many locals.

Incline Village Championship Golf Course: Following its recent $10 million renovation, this 18-hole Par 72, 7,106-yard signature Robert Trent Jones, Sr. target golf course features plenty of challenge with several water holes and bunker hazards. One of the most impressive views from any North Lake Tahoe course comes at the signature 16th hole, where the view of the entire east shore of Lake Tahoe serves as a reward for making it so far along this challenging course.

Incline Village Mountain Golf Course: With spectacular green sites and contours, the Mountain Course demands more accuracy than distance. “Shot making” skills are necessary to navigate the mountainous 18-hole par 58 terrain. Carved out of the pines with no harsh transition areas and no artificial landscaping, this course is all natural and a real challenge and joy to play. It’s a tribute to its brilliant designer, Robert Trent Jones, Jr.
