There are places you can visit that are orderly, fabricated and neatly packaged. A mighty fine box of all things expected. Then again, there’s this place where unprocessed adventures appear fresh daily, where real characters introduce you to wild horses, whitewater thrills, off-piste powder, trails, glider rides, charmingly creaky restaurants and the perfect bar stool for recounting your legendary day. All in a valley that’s easy to find. And hard to forget. That’s the kind of reality we’d like to share with you.

  • We could go on and on about some of the free spirits that have colored our valley but, hey, why do that when we’ve got Kim, a character crazy enough to slip into everything from the tattered boots of a Pony Express rider to the wispy lace of the Comstock’s most prominent streetwalker.

    Head for the ranch, throw down a blanket and settle in as Kim, a local actor with a quiver of personalities, unleashes a riveting blend of history and entertainment.
  • When the JT Bar & Dining Room on main street opens, the table is set for bighearted people who appreciate old world masterpieces and a side order of newfound friendships, the kind of spirit that runs rampant in Carson Valley.

    For a more realistic experience, we recommend you pour a glass of cab and nibble on a bit of something that’s generous on the garlic. Then just click.
  • If you’re looking for someone who has all the dirt on the best trails to hit in Carson Valley, you can’t do better than checking in with Kate. She and her trusted lab know the lay of the land like the back of her glove.

    Can you handle fifteen seconds of ups and downs, huffing and puffing and single-track bliss? Thought so. Just in case, grab a hydration bladder, click and off you go.
  • Cole operates in a world of silence with Lake Tahoe blues and Carson Valley greens thousands of feet below. It’s a dramatic ascent to skies so consistent that Carson Valley is one of the world’s most acclaimed soaring destinations.

    Hop in, strap up and stow your jaw in the upright position as it’s likely to drop time and again on this trip with Cole to the amazing blue yonder.
  • Photographers, biologists, nature lovers and those curious souls whose bucket lists include a front row encounter with a pack of wild horses will do well to set the alarm early and head ‘em out with JT on a journey to Nevada’s wild side.

    Saddle up and hit the range with local wrangler JT Humphrey on this journey into the outback with a supporting cast of eagles, coyotes and wild mustangs.
  • It’s only fitting that a drinking establishment as idiosyncratic as the Genoa Bar has a hostess as colorful as Dana. A frosty beer and a game of pool never went down better than here at the oldest, quirkiest, most memorable saloon you’ll ever set foot in.

    Pull up a chair and bend your elbow with Dana, a pint-sized bundle of dynamite with stories to tell, drinks to pour and a jukebox that goes heavy on Willie.
