Trout Creek Updates

We know it’s an inconvenience when your workout schedule is interrupted. We know how important daily exercise is to many of you. We hope you understand that we try our best to accommodate your needs, try to give a much warning as possible and select the shoulder season to close Trout Creek Recreation Center for spring cleaning every year. It’s necessary for us to plan for a concentrated amount of time to perform building updates, many of which are suggestions from members who want to see more electrical outlets and locker room upgrades.

During the spring closure, every nook and cranny is cleaned. This year we’re fixing and replacing tile areas – some in high-traffic areas – to keep up with our safety standards. Replacing tile is something that just takes time to do right.

Throughout the year, we collect all of your upgrade suggestions, compile our list of safety enhancements and spend three concentrated days working on deep cleaning the facility, repairing walls, repainting areas and making any other necessary updates.

We hope you understand this method, and we hope you’ll be smiling when you see the great work which has been completed!

Spring Cleaning at Trout Creek

Trout Creek Recreation Center will be closed for spring cleaning from April 17 – 19. During the closure, we will power wash the floors and clean out the lockers. If you rent a locker, we ask that you please clean out your belongings. We plan to clean all of the lockers and want to make sure your belongings are protected. Thank you for your cooperation. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Spring Weekend Fun

Winter returned to Truckee this week, bringing fresh white snow on Wednesday night and more still expected to fall before the weekend. Weather will clear for the weekend, with plenty of sunshine in the forecast.

Sounds like the perfect ingredients for a fantastic weekend of spring skiing and riding. It’s also the last weekend of operations at the cross country ski center and downhill ski area, so we encourage you to get out there while you can! Friday night is the last Happy Hour and Open Mic night at the cross country ski center. Stop by from 4 – 7 p.m. for $3 beers, live music and appetizer specials.

Sunday is the annual Downhill Dummy and Rail Jam event at the downhill ski area. This year’s theme is movie characters, and there’s still time for you to build your own downhill dummy to enter in the contest. There will be live music, food and drink specials, a bounce house and half price lift tickets on Sunday. Rail Jam starts at 12 p.m. and downhill dummy starts at 4:30 p.m.

We also want to remind you that Snowplay is now closed for the season. Thanks for tubing, sledding and hanging out with Parker the Penguin this year. We hope to see you again next year!

Downhill Dummy April 15



We always close out the season with a big bang! Hope you’ll come out for the annual Downhill Dummy and Rail Jam event on Sunday, April 15.

Lift tickets will be discounted at half-day rates for the entire day. In addition to skiing and riding, we will offer snow tubing on this special day, plus a free bounce house.

The rail jam kicks-off at 12 p.m. We’ll have live music from Forget the Roses on the deck all afternoon, plus food and drink specials.

The highlight of the afternoon is the Downhill Dummy. Teams build unique dummies to send down the hill and launch off a jump. This year’s theme is movie characters, and prizes will be awarded for best design, best air and best crash. Watch them fly down the hill starting at 4:30 p.m. You’ll want to get there early to get a good spot to watch!
