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: https://bit.ly/2z8mvu2 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: https://bit.ly/2PkhUPV
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.
