2018 Thanksgiving Holiday Trip Planning

If you’ve never stayed at Lake Tahoe during the Thanksgiving holiday, you are missing out on one of the most fun seasons of transition. The area shifts from quiet fall days, where town feels deserted to full-blown winter ‘buzz.’ Many years there’s snow on the ground by Thanksgiving and Red Dog is up and running at Squaw; some years we have just a dusting on the ground. But it’s all worth it!

You’ve scratched the idea of cooking, baking and hosting this year – we don’t blame you! A long-standing Thanksgiving tradition is dinner at Squaw Valley’s High Camp, served buffet style in the Terrace Room, with stunning views of Squaw Valley and Lake Tahoe. You can feast at 12PM or 3:30PM. Tickets on sale shortly: If you don’t feel like celebrating Thanksgiving at 8,000 feet, here are some other fun places around Tahoe you can enjoy turkey and cranberries with your loved ones:

On Thanksgiving morning you might be looking for a way to burn some calories before – if you’re not out on the hill, you can get in a strong flow at Wanderlust Yoga in the Village at Squaw, or try a great full-body workout at The Bar Effect in Downtown Truckee.

Round out the weekend with Squaw’s Winter Party, which truly is a the official holiday season kick-off celebration! Welcome to Winter Party on Saturday, November 24 has offers free photos with Santa, live entertainment, a Plumpjack Sport fashion show, and the Squaw Tree Lighting ceremony at 5PM.

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!
