With more than four feet of new snow in the past week and more on the way, North Lake Tahoe is ready to welcome locals and visitors to its 30th annual Snowfest, the largest winter carnival West of the Mississippi, taking place March 4-13th. This year offers an exciting line-up of winter events, running the gamut from zany hometown parades to bold polar bear swims and extreme food challenges.
Here at Granlibakken, we’ve been basking in blue bird days with snow up to our chins. Beginner skiers and skilled sledders have converged on our ski & sled hill, swooshing and tumbling in billows of fluffy white snow. The resort was abuzz with one particular visitor (large, white and happy), who’s now come and gone. He descended on the resort, in such bold fashion that he had to be “forcibly” removed so traffic could flow in and out of the resort.
With cross-country and snowshoe trails right out your door and Snowfest activities minutes away in downtown Tahoe City, winter is nothing short of a fun-filled time at Granlibakken. Snowfest’s Opening Night Ceremonies are this Friday, March 4th at the base of Squaw Valley USA with a torchlight parade and fireworks.
