Every year, the Tahoe City Rotary Club hosts a Sled and Santa Day at Granlibakken. Pack up the kids and join us on December 12th for free sledding plus gifts from Santa, who arrives, not by sleigh, but by Tahoe City fire truck. Festivities kick off at noon.

Did you get a taste of Tahoe’s big November snowstorm? We at Tahoe Mountain Sports made the cold-hardy Granlibakken Vikings proud by getting out and playing in the deep stuff.
We headed just a few miles from Granlibakken on Tahoe’s West Shore, where the snow is always the deepest… our tracks had us breaking snow up to our thighs! Black Diamond skis were definitely the tools of choice and the Black Diamond Megawatt made its earliest season debut in years. Enjoy this photo from the Lake Tahoe backcountry, and come enjoy the snow yourself! It will just keep coming down in December.

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.
Mother Nature knew that school was out this week for the Thanksgiving holiday. Unfortunately for parents, kids aren’t sleeping in. Awakened by the sound of plows followed by the quiet of snow, kids are clamoring to make that first snowman of the season and get out their sleds.
With over six feet of new, fluffy snow coating our historic hill (and more on the way), Granlibakken’s sled hill is officially open for the season. The new snow has made this Thanksgiving one of our most memorable in years! In addition to a home cooked dinner and the company of friends and family, visitors can look forward to the laughter that only comes from being bundled up from head to toe spinning down fresh white powder in a fluorescent green saucer.
