2-Night Ski Giveaway: Sweet Skiing Sweepstakes!

With the 56 degree weather, and bluebird days at Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, spring is definitely in the air. But don’t think we’re out of the snow woods just yet. (We know, we know. We haven’t been deep in them, but it’s only March!) We have another set of big storms on the horizon, which means more powder for your play!

So don’t pack away your gear just yet.  Especially if you want to come ski/ride Squaw and Alpine on us! We’re giving away a 2-night package at Squaw Valley Lodge, a Sweet Skiing Sweepstakes that’s sure to treat you right, both your powder legs and sweet tooth.

There’s no trick or gimmick to winning. Simply ‘like’ our Facebook page, fill out a short entry form (60 seconds short!) and check back on March 19th to see if you’re the lucky winner.

Be sure to share with all your family and friends!  Because if you don’t win, hey – maybe your spouse or best friend will. And that could amount to a nice little spring sweep at Squaw for you! You have until March 16th at 11:59pm to enter!


Lake Tahoe Cultural Events: Tahoe Youth Ballet

Who ever said urban and rural life couldn’t intersect seamlessly? You can enjoy Lake Tahoe’s breathtaking great outdoors, tucker yourself out on the slopes all day, and still get your fill of a city-center cultural favorite: ballet.

There is a company of young dance students in the Lake Tahoe area who are devoted to bringing new life to the cultural fabric of the region. Tahoe Youth Ballet presents “Dancing Women, Then and Now” on March 9th and 10th at 7pm at Cal Neva Resort.  “Dancing Women, Then and Now” features Act II of Giselle and the premiere of Into the Trees. The gala opening night tickets ($55) include admission with preferred seating, a semi-formal post-show party and two raffle tickets.

General admission tickets are also available at both performances: Adults, $20; Students/Seniors $10.  For more information about Tahoe Youth Ballet, performance dates, and a sneak peek of Into the Trees, click here.
