There’s so much happening around Lake Tahoe for the 4th of July, that it’s hard to choose where to take the family for holiday fun!

If you’re a skier or snowboarder then you know the necessity of warming up for a big day on the hill, or the joy of cooling down those achy muscles from a long day of playing hard. Yoga is just the thing; and you’re in luck because there’s a fabulous yoga studio just steps from Squaw Valley Lodge in the Village at Squaw. Climb out of your comfy bed at 7am and come “flow” while watching the snow fall at Squaw. Follow your class with a hot cup of tea and breakfast and explore Upper Mountain with muscles rearing to go! Or maybe you’re someone who would like to work out their kinks on a day off from the mountain. Either way, you’ll find it at Wanderlust Yoga Squaw Valley.
If you’re not a local, or don’t plan on a membership. you can always drop in at any class! In fact, with a Squaw Alpine Season Pass you’ll save with the Passholder Drop In Yoga Class – only $13.70 a class versus $17.00. Click here for more details!

Though summer is the season for wine tasting, there’s nothing like the warmth that comes from an autumn wine and chocolate tasting. The leaves have changed colors, the crispness of fall hangs in the air – it’s a season that beckons comfort foods. What’s more delicious and comforting than luxurious wine and chocolate?
For over 25 years the Tahoe Chocolate & Wine Festival has been one of the area’s high end culinary events to feature local wineries, chocolatiers and boutique food. For the cost of admission ($125 person) on November 8, from 5:30pm to 10pm at the Hyatt in Incline Village, guests will enjoy a wine walk–sampling wines hand selected from acclaimed California wine regions, such as Napa, Amador, and Paso Robles. Guests are then seated for a guided chocolate tasting from several of Lake Tahoe’s finest culinary chocolate artists.
Not only are guests drinking and eating to their delight, the event benefits an instrumental nonprofit in the Lake Tahoe area, Tahoe SAFE Alliance. Tahoe SAFE Alliance is the only agency in North Lake Tahoe and Truckee that provides free programs and services to survivors of violence and abuse, and educates our youth and community members on violence prevention and healthy relationships.
In addition to the event leaving your belly full, there are raffle prizes, and a door entry prize (yes, it pays to just go!) where you could win 4 nights at Playa Viva Resort – a $2,000 value!
We can’t think of a better reason to taste wine and eat chocolate while at Lake Tahoe.
