Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

Don’t feel like packing your bike for your Lake Tahoe getaway to Granlibakken? Don’t worry. You’re all taken care of thanks to West Shore Sports.

Take a bike adventure with a set of wheels from West Shore Sports.

The adventure begins onsite at Granlibakken. West Shore Sports offers the most comfortable “bike path” bikes on the West Shore. Feel like powering up the pavement?

You can check out a 15-speed road bike and circumnavigate the lake. Looking for a less strenuous trip closer to shore? Try a seven-speed beach cruiser. Want some intense backcountry adventure? Try the ascent up Blackwood Canyon and then thrill ride down on a mountain bike.

Whatever you have in mind, West Shore Sports will put you in any saddle you like, and outfit the family, too. They offer kids 20-inch and 24-inch mountain bikes, younger kids Adams Trail-a-Bikes (third wheels) and Croozer trailers that can hold two little ones up to 100 pounds.

All bike rentals come with helmets, bike locks and trail maps at no extra charge. West Shore Sports staff can offer personalized route directions, based on the needs of your group, to send you off on a great adventure.

Throughout the Tahoe City region there are dozens of on and off-road trails, fit for novices to experts. The Tahoe City Public Utility District and Caltrans fund bicycle trails in and around Tahoe City. Paved trails run from Tahoe City to Dollar Point, Tahoe City to Sugar Pine Point State Park and from Tahoe City to Squaw Valley.

If you’re looking for something to do on the water, you can head on over to West Shore Sports and check out any number of stand up paddle boards, kayaks and accessories. Or you can call ahead of time and have a kayak or paddle board delivered to Granlibakken.

West Shore Sports is also your one-stop for winter, with alpine skis, snowboards, snowshoes, cross country skis, tuning and repair.

Where will your bike adventure take you when you visit Granlibakken?

Pre-season Ski Training Tips

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

Even though the weather is still in the 60s and 70s (in fact record highs today) ski season is around the corner with area resorts anticipating opening in a little over a month. Whether you ski 5-10 days a season of 40 + you’ll likely be sore the first few times you hit the slopes.

Keep in mind we’re not health experts, but here’s a few tips to help you before strapping on those skis and snowboards this season.

Here’s a few of my favorite exercises/stretches:

Core Performance recommends training session that combines lower body strength-boosting moves, power exercises and drills to solidify your hips, torso and shoulders. This helps to build strength and speed for the mountain while carving up a more flexible body, and one that’s more resilient to injury.

Did you know that we’re located near several of the top resorts in the country, including Squaw Valley USA, Northstar-at-Tahoe and local favorites like Alpine and Homewood. We have array of ski/stay packages (of course includes our delicious hot daily breakfast and transportation to several of the resorts) – rates will be available soon.

What’s your favorite pre-ski season exercise? Do you prefer to ski or snowboard?

Our fingers are crossed for the El Nino winter we keep hearing about. Check out a trailer for the new Warren Miller film “Dynasty”. The Tahoe segment will surely leave you dreaming of snow.
