NATURE NEVER CLOSED
Despite Covid it has been a fantastic summer for rock climbing here on Donner Pass in Truckee. Our Rock Climbing School opened in June with a detailed set of procedures and precautions in place, and all has gone well. Thank you to our amazing students and awesome guides who have made it so fun for all!
What you’ve said:
“From start to finish, our adventure with NASTC Rock Climbing School far exceeded our expectations. The booking process was easy and personalized to my son’s ability level. His instructor was positive, patient, and extremely knowledgeable. Both days of climbing were incredible, life-changing adventures!!” -Chalsey
“The team at NASTC is the best! My kids have loved climbing with Clinton and have enjoyed refining their climbing skills with him. Best of all, he emphasizes safety and has really drilled the best practices of climbing into them. Of course, the breathtaking locations aren’t bad either! Looking forward to many more years of climbing with this team!” -Jackie
Because nature did not close. And so many of us all enjoyed Truckee/Tahoe or other rejuvenating nature destinations. Nothing provides a cleansing for the soul in these terrifically challenging times like mountains, lakes, meadows, rivers, rock crags, and oceans. So we hope you’re continuing to get outside regularly and safely (with social distance). Because as Toni Morrison said, “At some point in life the world’s beauty becomes enough.”
So we are hard at work here at NASTC creating more Covid-safe access to nature’s beauty…next up we’ll be playing in the snow (read on). In the meantime, we’re offering rock climbing lessons through October.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
GET READY FOR BC SKIING
If I had a nickel for every time someone asks if the resorts will be open this winter, I’d share my wealth with you! We don’t know; we can only hope. But as Covid rages on, we need to be ready to play where we can earn our turns with natural social distancing…in the backcountry! This winter NASTC will offer daily private guided backcountry tours in Truckee/Tahoe for all levels with our certified guides. We will also help you with rentals if you need. Or if you want help buying equipment, contact us.
BACKCOUNTRY SKIING WITH NASTC
NASTC AVALANCHE SCHOOL
The promise of pristine powder fields and underpopulated terrain are luring more and more skiers and riders into the backcountry. However, with more access the risk has never been greater, and the need to know basic safety protocols, rescue techniques, avalanche hazard awareness and management are essential to survival and having a great time out there.
This winter we will offer the AIARE level 1 and 2 on seven weekends Dec-March. The potential of a hybrid online learning program including Zoom sessions is being developed by AIARE and we’re very confident we can deliver a fantastic learning experience. We’ll keep you posted as we finalize these flexible courses. The field work should remain the same. We are already taking reservations, and – warning – these classes always fill up.

PLACES WE LOVE TO STAY
Truckee’s Cedar House Sport Hotel’s mission is to provide a cohesive guest experience that inspires. They accomplish this as an active lifestyle hotel with a strong environmental consciousness. “Experience our world – one that is rooted in fresh mountain air, pure water and irresistible mountain trails” say owners Jeff & Patty Baird, and we could not agree more! Book your stay now, you won’t regret it!
CEDAR HOUSE SPORT HOTEL
From weathering interstate closures to harsh mountain conditions, one of the most wonderful qualities of the Sierra Nevada business community is its resilience in times of adversity.
Due to the unexpected nature of local business closures amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the long-term risk our mountain towns face is being unable to recover when the crisis has subsided. If we allow that to happen, then we allow our region to be changed forever by a temporary interruption. Community members strongly impact how well our area bounces back; please help us preserve our community institutions.
