Beautiful! We loved it! We had never been to that part of the country. You fly into Reno ( We used Rodney Perry with AllStar Transportation to get us from the airport to the resort.He also ran an errand one day for me by going to the ATT store to get me a charger-Highly recommend!) The drive from the airport is about an hour southeast to the Resort at Squaw Creek. https://www.hyatt.com/en-US/hotel/california/resort-at-squaw-creek/rnodh. The resort is at the ski mountain which is now called Palisades. Lake Tahoe is half in Nevada and half California. It’s the second deepest freshwater lake in the US. It is in between Reno and the ski mountain. Kinda… We explored all around there.. Tahoe City and Truckee and the Olympic Village. The 1960 Winter Olympics were held there.
First day we did a little snow shoeing after getting our skis rented for the next day. Then we ate at Fireside Pizza https://firesidepizza.com/ in the village. We recommend the Thai Chicken pizza.
Next day sking. We skied our way across the mountain toward High Camp. Up at High Camp there is an Olympic museum and an ice skating rink! We ate lunch up there at The Granite Bistro. https://www.palisadestahoe.com/events-and-activities/dining-and-apres/granite-bistro. There is an aerial tram that you can take or just ski there. We did both. It’s at 8200 elevation. Here are a Few sking pics! We ate dinner that night at Garwoods https://www.garwoods.com/ and I’m still thinking about the hot salted breadsticks with whipped butter on the table!
The next day Jimmy skied with Matt and his kids and Francy and I explored Tahoe City. It is a tiny town on the Lake. We happened upon a local poke bowl hole in the wall place for lunch called Blue Fish http://bluefishtahoecity.com/ . After that As we were walking around we stopped in Mountain Slice https://www.mountainslicetahoe.com/ for ice cream. It was delicious. Nice local place,. The homemade pizza smelled amazing .
Next day I went snowshoeing with 2 guides from The Resort. It was the Lake Shirley hike. It’s a 3 mile hike. I’m not sure how far we went but we we gone about 2.5 hours. We saw a lot of beautiful waterfalls. We were hiking up the back of High Camp.
The last night we ate at Six Peaks. It was located in the hotel lobby and was 5 star dining! Everything was delicious!
