Welcome to Sierra Adventures
Sierra Adventures has been Independently Owned and Operated by Mimi Garner since 2012. Seeing the need to entice new visitors to the undiscovered and unknown region, she started an online Tourist Information website and has been helping small businesses with Business Consulting and Real Estate Services. Memberships are available in the business Association.
Sierra Adventures has been successfully promoting the high Sierra region on its website. Mimi Garnerhas been agressively promoting the region since 1995 when she established the nationally acclaimed Nakoma Resort, Gold Mountain development and Dragon golf course located outside of Graeagle, CA.
Garner states, "My goal is to connect visitors and its citizens to local businesses in the Sierra Adventures region year round. The Sierra Adventures Chamber covers a much larger region than individual, micro-local county chambers cover because we are not reigned in by county lines, restrictive charters or government involvement. When small businesses connect and join forces, not only do they succeed, but Sierra Adventures succeeds as well."
Garner has been a creative businesswoman since graduating from college. Garner's businesses have included working with Independent banks in the 1980's providing computer programming services and asset
liability management products. In the 1990's, Garner operated a very successful gourmet baby vegetable farming operation Baja California Sur, Mexico which grew to some 6,000 acres and exported produce around the world.
In the early 2000's, Garner established one of the first environomentally sensitive, golf communities called Gold Mountain from which arose the world renowned, destination resort and clubhouse, designed by Frank Lloyd
Wright in 1924. He named Nakoma after a Chippewa Indian word which means "I do as I promise." The clubhouse, became the center piece of the Gold Mountain community along side the challenging Dragon "Send Me Your Heroes" championship golf course designed by golf architect Robin Nelson of Mana Lani and Kapalua fame.
The Gold Mountain community was masterplanned by Taliesin Architects, Scottsdale, AZ a subsidiary of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and Wright School of Arcitecture. Garner got the project showcased in Architectural Digest, Forbes Magazine, Golf Magazine, Golf For Women Magazine, Links Magazine and on the Golf Channel, just to name a few.
"Another goal of Sierra Adventures' is to educate folks about the premier outdoor recreation and tourist destinations in the high Sierra region. The Sierra Adventures website offers a place to find what visitors and citizens need to LIVE WORK STAY SHOP PLAY VISIT. When small businesses in the region join the Association, they'll reap rewards by getting their message delivered farther and wider. " says Garner.
