Location: 2 miles south of Tahoe City, 1 mile uphill from Sunnyside Restaurant

Price Range: low $300,000’s to $3.5 million. No lakefronts in these areas.

These are two separate neighborhoods. Talmont is right up behind the Sunnyside – Tahoe Park neighborhood, while Twin Peaks is way up Ward Canyon near the Sherwood Chair on the backside of Alpine Meadows.

The front half of Talmont belongs to the Tahoe Park HOA with a huge lakefront homeowners’ area replete with 2 piers, large buoy field, grassy play areas, games, picnic benches, etc. It’s a great place to hang out with family and friends. The back half of Talmont doesn’t belong to the HOA but may parcels have nice lakeviews and back to US Forest Service lands. Your nice neighbor, Granlibakken Resort, thought it would be nice to run the groomer up here from time to time so the trails to Paige Meadows and beyond sometimes see the love of a fat groomer. If you don;t know Paige Meadows, it is the absolute best spot for a moonrise party and is awesome single-track biking then XC. You can pass through here is you know what you’re doing when dropping the rope at Alpine. It’s a hike but you can actually start on Donner Summit and skin yourself all the way past Sugar Bowl, Squaw and Alpine to come into Paige and your place in Talmont.

Alpine Peaks is awesome if you are up for LOTS of snow. Maybe as much as Tahoe Donner but this snowpack stays around longer because of its proximity to the Sierra Crest. You get here by taking the backside of Alpine access road and just keep going. The parcels are all larger than the neighborhoods down below. Larger lots usually means larger houses and thatis usualtly the case in Alpine Peaks. Of course, the backside of Alpine Meadows ski area is up here at the back of Ward. Now that Squaw basically owns Alpine, it’s a pretty wild thought to get oneself from here to Granite Chief then down to Mamsake for the best Happy Hour ‘beer and a hand roll’ deal in North America.
