INCLINE VILLAGE, NEV.—Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa and Casino, the only waterfront resort in North Lake Tahoe, announces Kemp Dowdy as its outdoor and adventure specialist. Through this new role, Dowdy will work one-on-one with guests to curate and personalize their Lake Tahoe experience.

“I am thrilled to be the outdoor and adventure specialist at Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe,” said Dowdy.  “Lake Tahoe is a gem of a destination, and it provides endless possibilities for getting outside and enjoying unforgettable adventures. With such a wide range of premier experiences available right outside our doors, it is my role to help our guests plan the Tahoe getaway that best fits their specific interests and preferences. Whether that means taking a kayak trip around the lake, seeking out the area’s most beautiful hiking trails or best stargazing sites, or enjoying some of the best ski conditions in the country, I am here to help guests plan a one-of-a-kind Tahoe itinerary.”

Once guests book a stay at Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe, they will have the option to be virtually connected with Dowdy to curate their on-site experience. Prior to arrival, guests can email tahoeadventures@hyatt.com to begin the process, or they can connect with Dowdy via telephone, Facetime, or Zoom to discuss the current events and activities taking place on site. Options range from guided bicycle tours to Sand Harbor and a guided hike to the Mount Rose Waterfall, to a dryland boot camp with exercises focusing on agility, coordination and strength designed to prepare guests for the upcoming snow sport season.
