Oktoberfest at Squaw Valley: Drink In The Autumn Season!

Oktoberfest beer steins and Bavarian dancers at Squaw Valley

Grab your stein of beer and enjoy Oktoberfest at Squaw Valley!

This time of year at Lake Tahoe seems to sneak up on us. We’re in the thick of summer and all its glorious events, and in one fell swoop summer suddenly collapses in fall. With the crisp, cooling temperatures and leaves rapidly changing colors, it’s time to ring in the season with Oktoberfest at Squaw Valley on September 27, 2014! Taking down a large stein of beer will get you ready for those long winter nights of cozying up by the fire after an epic powder day on the slopes. Sure winter is on the horizon, but let’s be sure to enjoy fall first!

What to expect at Squaw’s Oktoberfest? All the standard greats: Traditional Bavarian music and folk dances, Benefit Beer Garten, Brats & Kraut, and games from 2-6pm. Your $10 admission includes a specialty glass and first beer (choose wisely). After that it’s only $5 for additional beers in your stein!

Don’t worry, wine is also available if you’re not a beer lover. (We’ll forgive you for that one at Oktoberfest.)

For some people it doesn’t matter what season it is – they’re always dreaming of winter.

Of course summer in Lake Tahoe is an epic adventure—full of water sports and rounds of golf, late night ice cream trips with the family, outdoor movie showings at Squaw Valley, July 4th fireworks and floats down the Truckee River— but snow makes everyone here giddy.

Now that summer has officially waned, the countdown for Old Man Winter is on! This means if you haven’t lined up a Tahoe Super Pass, you still have time to save big before it’s time for first tracks. If you already have vacation days blocked off to ski or snowboard, why not snag your ski pass now? In fact, the pass could pay for itself in only four days of riding. Remember, The Tahoe Super Pass is valid at Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Sierra-at-Tahoe, and Sugarbowl Resort!

Tahoe Super Pass sales prices are guaranteed through September 8, 2014 – that’s tomorrow, folks! Since Squaw Valley Lodge is perfect for your next ski-in/ski-out getaway, we suggest you jump on the savings now, and while you’re at it, check out our reduced rates for this winter.

See you out there ‘shredding the gnar’!

Fall Into Autumn Around Lake Tahoe

Autumn Leaves in Truckee

The Truckee River aspens on fire on a cozy, fall day.

Tahoe locals like to talk about the three seasons you’ll find here: winter, summer, and construction. Although it may seem like Mother Nature skips over fall and spring, we’d like to reveal one of Lake Tahoe’s best kept secrets: autumn.

The aspen trees are ablaze in yellow–endless meadows and vistas of orange. The days are still long enough to hit the trails after work. Highway 89 isn’t a parking lot. Local restaurants and grocery stores are not zoos. There is a slight chill in the air, the Tahoe sky is on fire with cotton candy sunsets, and the hopeful anticipation of an epic winter is palpable. The animals are preparing to hunker down while you sip spiced lattes or mulled wine by the fire.

Here are some fun family activities and events to check out in Tahoe City, Squaw Valley, and Truckee!

Lake Tahoe Autumn Food and Wine, September 5-7

Lake Mary Cabin Dinner Series, September 7

“Trattoria” Opening Event for Tahoe Art Haus + Cinema, September 5-6

The dog days of summer are winding down with kids back in school (or on their way this week), which means it’s the perfect time to soak up every last drop of fun! There are still many family friendly activities and things to do in Lake Tahoe or Squaw Valley before the school bells ring. Do you love theater? Do you love being outdoors? How about a beautiful sunset at Lake Tahoe with a delicious picnic and glass of wine? How about all three!

The Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival at Sand Harbor is one of the region’s most sought after summer events for the whole family, held at “the most scenic venue in the world.” That’s a bold statement, but not a stretch, as you gaze across the pristine waters of Lake Tahoe during the show – it’s an enchanting cultural experience that shouldn’t be missed!

The 2014 season featuring Shakespeare’s romantic comedy, “As You Like It,” closes tomorrow, Sunday, August 24. Ticket are still on sale here! For a guide to the festival, with everything from seating to parking to food, click here.

Since the plays generally end around 10:00pm, you’ll need a place to rest for the evening. Our Squaw Valley Lodge Reservation Agents are ready to assist you with the best rates possible! Contact us today.


Tahoe Snow Storm Brings Over Two Feet of Powder!

February is going out with a bang in the Lake Tahoe area by adding another two feet of fresh snow, which totals eight feet of powder for the month! Looks like Squaw Valley could be headed into another Miracle March! Two systems this week brought in over two feet of powder, blanketing the area as we speak. Ski resorts could see another eight inches of snow Friday evening, which makes for a great weekend of skiing or snowboarding.

Check out photos from KT-22 at Squaw Valley … need we say more?

If you haven’t booked a room yet, it’s about time. You’ll find great late winter rates at Squaw Valley Lodge, starting at just $159/night!
