If you have been dreaming of strapping on your skis and hitting the slopes few locations provide such a boundless supply of resorts and timeless natural beauty. Lake Tahoe Resort which is nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountains is home to nine world class ski resorts spread across 22, 000 acres of land. Loaded with adventure and pristine beauty vacationing here is truly a breathtaking experience.
By far the most popular and quintessential selection is the Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley Resort. Historically the two resorts were separate but they have since been combined into one massive resort with every amenity you can imagine. Both locations can be seen from the top of their mountain ranges.
As of 2011 a new base-to-base gondola now connects both resorts. Previously you were required to drive from one parking lot to the other to access each location but no longer. Not only do you get the beauty and adventure of both slopes you get a gorgeous panoramic view as you are whisked from one mountain to the other. Relax while being transported across the mountain range that is home to one of the most renowned ski areas in the United States.
Known as the home of the seasoned skier the resort also offers plenty of less intense family fun options with intermediate and beginner skiers claiming almost 45% of the terrain. After a day on the slopes head down to the Squaw Valley for dinner, entertainment or to do little shopping. The village has a European layout and is home to 60 boutiques, restaurants and art galleries.
The Village also provides exceptional lodging options that are loaded with amenities including 8 outdoor hot tubs, a children’s game room and fully equipped gourmet kitchens. Load the troops and head out for some unforgettable, scenic and outrageous fun at a winter destination that truly has it all.
