RENO, Nev. — Long known for a junior ski program that’s produced some of the area’s top winter athletes like Reno’s David Wise, Sky Tavern has long been a staple in the Tahoe area for youngsters seeking to learn to ski or ride.
With snow now gone, the training center has shifted gears and is now using its trails for mountain bike clinics and programs.
Last year, Sky Tavern began working with professional trail builders Momentum Trail Concepts to improve and redesign trails at the ski hill located off Mount Rose Highway. Following last year’s work, the nonprofit now boasts an array of cross-country trails, single track, downhill sections, and jump lines. Sky Tavern also teamed with the High Fives Foundation to build a top-to-bottom trail designed specifically for adaptive mountain bikes.
