If you love to ski, snowboard, snowshoe or just sit by the fire and gaze at the winter wonderland outside your window, it’s time to get excited for winter in Tahoe! Come visit during this magical time of year, but make sure that you’re in a safe and dependable vehicle, since winter driving can be challenging. A 4-wheel drive car is the best option for most situations (if the weather is any worse than that, we recommend staying by the fire with a warm drink!).
Interested in spending the holidays in Tahoe this year? We sometimes have openings at Tahoe Village and the Eagles’ Nest during Christmas and/or New Year’s week. If you’re dreaming of holidays spent skiing or lounging by a fire, check with our Reservations Department for information about our 2019 availability and upgrade fees.
Autumn in Tahoe is a wonderful time to check out some of the area’s best breweries! Here are some of our favorites:
Cold Water Brewery: This all-grain brewery features hand-crafted beer brewed on site, California comfort food, a full service bar, 5 huge TVs and weekly events and dining specials. Sunday brunch also features a Build Your Own Bloody Mary Bar.
Stateline Brewery: This popular brewery is a short walk from the casinos and Heavenly’s Gondola.
With temperatures dropping but the weather still mild, autumn is one of our favorites times to visit Lake Tahoe. If you’re planning to join us, here are a few local activities to keep in mind:
Oktoberfest can be found various places and dates from late September through October. Visit Squaw Valley on September 21st or Camp Richardson on October 5th and 6th.
The Kokanee Salmon Festival at Taylor Creek celebrates the fall migration of the Kokanee salmon. This free family event is held October 5th and 6th. Join in a salmon feed or perhaps a 5k, 10k or 1/2 marathon.
Apple Hill is open year-round but is always fun during autumn. Pick apples, sample apple ciders and apple pies, visit a winery and enjoy the fall colors!
