Meetings West Features
|The Water's Fine|

Meetings West, April 2007
You can't tell by looking that Lake Tahoe is one of the deepest and highest lakes in the world, but its extraordinary clarity and mesmerizing blueness have to be seen to be believed. Its setting among the peaks and forests of the Sierras makes it a living postcard that groups will be tempted to experience and explore.
Luckily, there are nearly as many ways to get out on the lake and enjoy the scenery as there are shades of blue.
Tahoe Adventure Company features team-building exercises for nearly any size of group, either on the water or off. In the summer, guided sunset, full moon and astronomy kayak tours on the lake are just a few of the memorable experiences available, and customized programs are also offered. In the colder months, a Winter Olympics-theme team-building package is designed to bring out both competition and collaboration in groups.

Lake Tahoe's majestic natural beauty lends itself to exciting outdoor pursuits, including interesting team-building options and adventure sports. Several local companies on both the North and South shores cater to groups seeking a unique way to incorporate the great outdoors into agendas.
Tahoe Adventure Company: Another ropes course option is offered through Tahoe Adventure Company, which also incorporates sports such as kayaking, biking, rock climbing, and hiking into its team-building programs. The company also specializes in Beach Olympics, in which groups are broken down into teams of 12 to 15 attendees to complete a series of enjoyable bonding tasks. Tahoe Adventure Company also aims to educate groups about the heritage of the area by stopping along the way during hikes to discuss the region's natural and cultural history.
