I didn’t know it when I bought my home here, but Christmas Valley, for an athlete and recreation enthusiasts, it just doesn’t get much better. From my home, I can access hundred of trails for mountain biking, trail running and hiking. In minutes, I can drive to one of my favorite back country skis, called Water House. In the winter, when the conditions are right, you can ski epic untracked powder from the top of Highway 50, to the Valley — in my case — right to the door. There is a seasonal waterfall only a short hike — one mile — that you’d think belonged in Yosemite. Old Meyers Grade aka — housewife hill, a favorite, less than an hour, walk — is the perfect exercise when you don’t have much time. I can go on and on about how great it is. What is it NOT is close access to what I call “casino life” or “night life”. In this case, you’d be better off near Stateline. I love my neighborhood in South Lake Tahoe and would buy real estate here again and again!!
