TMS_LadiesNight2014_Blog2

With winter on the horizon, it doesn’t matter if you’re a lady or gent–you’re thinking about, dreaming up, and hoping for snow.

But if you’re a gal about town in Tahoe on a Saturday night, and looking for something fun to do before the powder hits, join fellow ladies in the area for a fun night at one of our favorite local outfitters. On November 22, Lake Tahoe native and pro-skier, Michelle Parker, will host a FREE evening at Tahoe Mountain Sports (Tahoe City, CA), leading a motivational discussion on her career and what it takes to be a successful action sports athlete.

Doors open at 5:00pm for shopping specials. There are great discounts on gear and clothing only ladies will enjoy during this event! There are also fabulous raffle prizes, including a Ghost Whisperer hooded down jacket ($300 value) from Mountain Hardware, and so much more to check out! The official program begins at 6:30pm.

All proceeds from this event benefit the SAFE AS Clinics, a local non-profit organization that heightens the awareness of community snow safety and avalanche awareness for women in an open and welcoming environment.

You can RSVP to the event on Facebook HERE!

New Ski Film: “Less” Premier by Level 1 Productions

With Saturday’s recent snow storm at Lake Tahoe, Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows got 6 inches to kick off the winter season.

Though temperatures will rise this week, it has definitely gotten us pumped for powder! With an El Nino winter on the horizon, of course we’re hoping for big storms, deep snow, and fun days on the slopes. While we cross our fingers and hope for an epic year to match the winter of 2010/11, why not check out a new ski film premiering at Tahoe on Sunday, November 23?

Join other locals at Homewood Ski Resort to view Level 1 Production’s ”Less” premier, featuring athletes like Duncan Adams, Will Berman, LSM, Magnus Graner, Tanner Rainville and more! The film was shot on location in the U.S., Canada, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, France, and Japan.

Enjoy the screening of “Less” outside around the South Lodge fire pit (so be sure to bundle up!); heat lamps and warm cocktails are provided to keep you cozy. Sierra Avalanche Center will also give a short presentation about their efforts to keep backcountry skiers and snowboarders safe and educated about the terrain. You won’t want to miss this if you plan on any backcountry this season!

“Less” tickets are $12 in advance or $15 at the door. And of course there will be raffle prizes available – even a snowcat trip on the new Homewood Snowcat Adventures ($399 value).

Remember Squaw Valley Lodge’s winter sale is going on for stays between November 21, 2014 and April 30. 2015! You could save up to 33% off, so check out our best rates, stay a few nights, catch the premier of “Less”, and stay for opening day at Squaw Valley  on November 26 while you’re at it!


October Snow At Squaw Valley!

Squaw Snow 2014

Our favorite season is right around the corner, and winter paid us a quick visit this weekend to keep us on our toes. Waking up to fresh snow at Squaw Valley on an October morning is something dreams are made of. Except dreams of fluffy white mornings on KT will soon become a reality as winter slowly rounds the corner.  Mother Nature dusted Squaw Valley’s upper mountain almost to say, “Get ready for powder: I’m coming.”  And coming it is–next week’s forecast calls for snow, so stay tuned for more autumn white!

Once fall descends on the Lake Tahoe region it’s only a matter of time before the first snow of the season blankets Squaw Valley. As you prepare for another winter–pulling out your gear, perusing a ski swap or two, waxing your fat skis for powder days–we’d like to remind you of one gloriously good piece of news …

That means you could be skiing at Squaw Valley less than 40 days from now. Of course we make no guarantees for what Mother Nature will do between now and November 26th. Please note it’s likely there will be a limited amount of lifts open (lower versus upper mountain). If you don’t have your Tahoe Super Pass, it’s time to get on the ball and save while you can! Prices increase after October 21, 2014. If you plan on getting on the slopes even a couple times this winter, the Tahoe Super Pass will pay off big time for you and your family.

Purchase your Tahoe Super Pass here, and while you’re at it, check out our deals for winter lodging at Squaw Valley Lodge!


Get Ready For Winter at Squaw Valley: Lodging Sale

One of the sure signs of winter is when Squaw Valley gets its first fall dusting of snow.

Last week we woke up to four inches at Squaw Valley, and with the colors of autumn in the valley it was Mother Nature’s reminder to get out those skis for a good first wax of the season. Before we know it the days will be shorter and darker, but full of powder, hot cocoas, happy wind-chapped cheeks, and kiddos squealing while learning their “pizza” and “hot dogs” on the slopes.
