Learn to Ski & Board Weekend – December 11th & 12th

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

Granlibakken’s is inviting all beginner skiers and boarders to our historic ski hill on December 11th and 12th for the 11th Annual Learn to Ski & Board Weekend. For just $25, you’ll get an all-day beginner lift ticket, group lesson and gear rental. And with over six feet of fresh snow (and more on the way!), conditions couldn’t be better. And in the company of other beginners and great hands of our expert instructors, you couldn’t ask for a better “first” skiing or boarding experience. Come early to reserve your spot.


Fall Specials at Granlibakken

Friday, October 8th, 2010

It is October. Fall is here and the weather is gorgeous in Lake Tahoe. What are you doing sitting at home? Known as the “shoulder season,” fall presents a great opportunity for families and couples to enjoy Lake Tahoe as we Locals do.  Sales, deals, and events make this season the perfect for any vacationer looking to wind down from a busy summer. The privacy of being nestled in trees above Lake Tahoe mixed with the excitement of the Lake’s recreational opportunities just minutes away makes Granlibakken the ideal lodging for your fall getaway.
Granlibakken is offering a $99/night fall deal for October inviting you to enjoy the Lake like a Local. Feel autumn in the air as you stroll the streets of Tahoe City and take advantage of shopping deals and dining specials.
Start your day off with a complimentary hot, hearty breakfast buffet. Stay on site and relax in a heated pool, Jacuzzi and sauna, or work up an appetite at the state of the art tennis facility.  With on site hiking trails and bike rentals Granlibakken makes it easy to experience the outdoors, and for only $99 a night, makes it affordable too.
With perfect temperatures outside fall is a prime season for events around the Lake. Tahoe City’s Annual Cobblestone Oktoberfest, Saturday October 9th , is a day full of apple bobbing, pumpkin painting, and yes, plenty of beer! Enjoy live music from Déjà vu, and wines from Uncorked Tahoe City.
On Saturday October 16th Harvest Fest will be in Tahoe City. A pumpkin patch, pony & hay rides, games for the kids & delicious food guarantee a memorable family experience. With free entry and the backdrop of Lake Tahoe the price is right too.
Don’t miss out on living like a local this October at Gralibakken.

Enter to Win a Tahoe Vacation at Granlibakken

Thursday, April 8th, 2010


Hey there.

Bob, a.k.a. “Bob the Berserker” here. I’m one of Granlibakken’s three new Viking Ambassadors. The resort brought us on board to feature its amenities, like free Wi-Fi and the peace and quiet of its 74 wooded acres just minutes from the shores of Lake Tahoe.

But I digress. My fellow warriors and I invite you to get barbaric with your creativity with not one, but two Granlibakken Viking-themed contests. Our trio needs a title, and we also want your input appropriate Viking names for each of us. I can’t go by Bob anymore… there’s already one in accounting. Check out which contest is right for you or learn more at

Meeting Planners:

Individuals from any company or industry that plan meetings can enter their name for the Viking Trio for a chance to win a $20,010 conference at Granlibakken! Enter by May 5, 2010 and grab victory by the horns.

Everyone else:

Not a meeting planner? No problem. We want to hear your thoughts on what names we should go by, besides the ones our mamas gave us. Submit your bright ideas and you could win a Tahoe vacation at Granlibakken. Enter by May 5, 2010 and let your creativity flow the icy seas.

Why Vikings? We’re part of the Lake Tahoe resort’s heritage. Granlibakken translates to “hillside sheltered by fir trees,” as named by the Norwegian ski jumpers who developed the site that would later become the location of the 1932 Olympic ski jump trials and then Granlibakken Conference Center and Lodge.  As Viking, I’m pretty darn proud of that.

Have a Thor-tastic day and good luck in the contests!
