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!

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!
