Schaffer’s Mill is the heart of one of the world’s most beautiful outdoor playgrounds, and the opportunities to create memorable experiences for our Members, their families and guests are nearly limitless. As the community grows, the Schaffer’s Mill team has been keen on adding services and amenities to help Members take advantage of this world-class destination. The latest of these is Schaffer’s Mill Adventures (SMA).
Part outfitter, part guide service, part cool local connection, the mission of SMA is to create amazing experiences for Schaffer’s Mill Members, their families and friends either at the Club or throughout the Truckee/Tahoe area.
The SMA team is led by the Club’s Chief Adventurist, Malcolm Ridenour. Many Members know Malcolm as the Tennis Director at Schaffer’s Mill, but this just scratches the surface of his expertise. In addition to being a USPTA Elite Professional Tennis Coach, Malcolm was ranked one of the Top 100 ski instructors in North America by SKI Magazine in 2004, and is an avid water-sports enthusiast and accomplished outdoorsman.
SMA is located in the clubhouse and provides experiences and activities for all ages. These include everything from tennis camps and guided hikes to wakeboard lessons on Lake Tahoe, fresh-tracks ski days and much more. Members will have three options when accessing SMA services:
- Everyday Adventures – Will always have some fun brewing around the clubhouse for Members to enjoy. Daily activities will range from cornhole and capture the flag to obstacle courses, fitness challenges and swimming races. We’ll also have weekly kids golf clinics, guided hikes and seasonal adventure camps. Plus, Members can always access the club’s Toy Box with a host of games, sports equipment and other toys.
- Club Adventures – These are organized Schaffer’s Mill outings open to all Members, their families and friends. Club Adventures will range from fun activities, easily accessible activities designed to introduce Members to new skills and adventures, to challenging excursions specially planned for accomplished adventurists.
- On-Your-Own Adventures – Members can access the expert knowledge of the SMA team free of charge to gain insights and suggestions, facilitate equipment rentals and learn new possibilities for adventure, enabling them to explore the region at their own pace and comfort level.
- Custom Adventures – For a fee, Members will be able to work with the SMA team to curate special guided excursions or other experiences tailored specifically to their interests and skill levels. This option will provide Members with the greatest flexibility in exploring all the Truckee/Tahoe area has to offer.
