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

Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival: Last Chance For Summer Family Fun!

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!

Lake Tahoe Snow Storm: Possibly Four Feet!

If you don’t have a room booked and your skis ready for a weekend of powder, do that now!

Our Squaw Valley Lodge reservation lines are open: 800.616.0906.

We’ve waited long enough for good snow to get our skiing and snowboarding legs wet! Winter is back in full effect, with up to 48 inches of powder that may fall between today and Monday. Get ready skiers, powder is here!

For the full storm forecast, check out the Tahoe forecast on Open Snow: http://opensnow.com/dailysnow/tahoe

Tahoe Forecast

The GFS model calls for 3 to 4 inches of precipitation along the West side, and up to 5 inches along the crest. So what does that mean for the amount of powder you’ll be skiing this weekend?

40 to 50 inches. And along the crest, 60 inches. Yep. Get stoked, because the snow is falling hard in the next 24 hours, where the area will see approximately 23 inches of new snow.

In the spirit of winter’s return, we thought we’d share a photo from a Lake Tahoe local in hopes that maybe Mother Nature will be just as kind for another epic year. It might be unlikely, but we can still hope. (Can you imagine what that winter must have been like since this is a photo from July?) In the meantime, we’ll take a couple feet of fresh powder and be on our merry way.
