Tahoe Trips and Trails announces new speaker series, guided treks and self-led backpacking adventures
TRUCKEE / LAKE TAHOE, Calif., March 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — “How do you Tahoe?” asks Patty Baird, owner of Tahoe Trips and Trails, the outdoor adventure company based out of The Cedar House Sport Hotel. The question — part challenge, part tongue in cheek and all inspiring — is asked with a smile.
“It’s not just a state of mind, and it is more than a lifestyle,” explains Baird. “We use ‘Tahoe’ as a verb. It’s Tahoe our way – with authentic connections, magnificent vistas and opportunities for personal growth. We ‘Tahoe’ locally, in Yosemite and as far away as Utah.”
‘How do you Tahoe?’ is a prompt to experience the beauty and incredible personal growth opportunities available in the natural world. The campaign includes on-site inspirational speakers plus guided trips and self-led treks on the Pacific Crest Trail and Tahoe Rim Trail. Follow the “#HowDoYouTahoe” campaign at Facebook.com/TahoeTrips.
“We live in a fast pace world where technology has changed the way we communicate and interact,” shares Baird. “We crave more true connections on a regular basis. Tahoe Trips and Trails helps adventurers connect. All of us know, on a gut level, the magnitude of being in the right place at the right time with the right people.”
