The Five Best Things About Mid-Week Vacations

There are plenty of good reasons to sneak up to Tahoe in the winter, but here are our Top 5 reasons to do it in the middle of the week.

1) Have the place to yourself! From restaurants to ski slopes to the drive to/from your favorite Tahoe ski spot, it's just you and a couple of local residents enjoying yourselves.

2) More affordable! From lift tickets to accommodations, everything is just a little bit cheaper during the week.

3) Clear your brain! There's nothing like a day spent in the clear mountain air to clear the cobwebs out of your brain and get your body working again.

4) Do you really use all your vacation days? Be honest. Americans are notorious for leaving vacation days on the table. Why? This makes no sense. Recharge yourself with a few days in the mountains.

5) FOMO your friends. You know you've been watching all those Instagram feeds lately and feeling like you don't do enough with your own life. There is actually a clinical treatment for this - get outside!

Or, in the words of John Muir: “Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”

Warm Up By The Fire With These Winter Cocktails

Two creative winter cocktails from Six Peaks Grille, a North Lake Tahoe restaurant, will change the way you order dessert this season.

The Melting Snowman is not just a fancy hot chocolate. This is a total reinvention of the winter warmer concept. Created with Belgium White Chocolate, Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur, and Courvoisier, then topped with whipped cream and a chocolate snowman, the Melting Snowman will make you want to melt right into your glass.

The S'Mores Martini is equally decadent. Crafted from Godiva White & Chocolate Liqueurs, and marshmellow vodka, rimmed with graham cracker encrusted chocolate ganache, and then topped with a toasted marshmellow, the S'mores Martini doesn't just tingle your tastebuds - it explodes on the tongue with a burst of chocolate flavor and subtle marshmellow undertones.

Order either cocktail this winter in Six Peaks Grille and we promise you'll be delighted.

Dogsledding and Sleigh Rides in Squaw Valley

Visitors to the Olympic Valley in North Lake Tahoe can experience the magic of Tahoe's winter terrain from a horse-drawn sleigh or the back of a dogsled at Resort at Squaw Creek. 

For children and adults alike, the chance for a horse-drawn sleigh ride through snowy meadows and forested paths is a winter delight not soon to be forgotten. Borges Sleigh Rides offers trips over the river and through the woods right from Resort at Squaw Creek's Nordic Center daily during the winter season, weather and conditions permitting. Each antique sleigh has warm blankets for snuggling, but you should still plan on dressing warmly for the experience. Make a reservation directly by calling Borges Sleigh Rides at 530.580.8439 or simply speak to our Concierge. 

For something completely new, take your family on a dogsled ride through Squaw Valley's meadows with Wilderness Adventures Dogsled Tours. Take in the views of the six massive peaks of Squaw Valley, meet the Alaskan Huskies who pull the sleds, and learn about the sport of dogsledding from the friendly, experienced guides. Dog Sled Tours are offered daily in the winter, weather and conditions permitting. Make a reservation directly with Wilderness Adventures by calling 530.550.8133 or simply speak to our Concierge. 

For children who love animals, meeting the sled dogs and the carriage horses is a magical memory they will cherish for years.

Girlfriend Getaways in Lake Tahoe

Here are five ideas to help you plan the perfect girlfriend getaway to Tahoe this winter. 

1) Just pack up and go. Wing it. Fly by the seat of your ski pants. Get your favorite girls in the car, head up to the mountains, and let Mother Nature (another of our favorite girls) do the rest. Whether it's skiing, snowshoeing, or a snowmobiling adventure, our concierge can help you make the rest of your plans once you arrive. 

2) Did someone say Spa? Massages, facials, and body treatments at Spa at Squaw Creek are an excellent way to spend an afternoon. Lounge in The Sanctuary before your treatments and catch up, then head out for an intimate dinner at Six Peaks Grille. Finish the day in the hot tubs under the stars. 

3) Boutique shopping in Historic Downtown Truckee. Local artists have set up shop, local boutique owners have an eye for the unique, and local restaurants are putting their own contemporary spin on mountain cuisine. Spend a few hours walking and talking around Truckee's local shops and restaurants. 

4) Take your skiing to the next level with Squaw Valley's Women of Winter three day clinic on March 1-3, 2015. Top off your weekend by enjoying our Four Diamond service and luxuriously appointed ski-in/ski-out suites. Pick up a picnic dinner from Sweet Potatoes Deli and relax after your day on the slopes.

5) Make a mountain of memories with Mom. Bring your daughter, your mom, or all three generations up to the mountains for some serious girl time. Drink hot chocolate for breakfast, make a snowman, ski wherever you want, go ice skating on our private rink, roast s'mores in one of our outdoor firepits, float in the heated pool while you catch snowflakes on your tongue, and get dessert before dinner (we won't tell).
