Outdoor recreation options abound at Granlibakken as weather warms

Friday, April 19th, 2013

Lake Tahoe, locals refer to the transition between spring and summer as the “shoulder season.” But that does not mean there is a shortage of outdoor fun.

It’s a time when mountains are winding down their operations, while at the same time preparing for the sun-soaked days and the refreshing cool nights that Tahoe summers are known for.

With plenty of biking, hiking and other recreation opportunities, the shoulder season lends itself to outdoor activities, without the large crowds often found in the peak periods of winter and summer.

Explore the grounds of Granlibakken and Tahoe city on a bike or your feet.

Whether you’re looking for a midweek escape or a romantic weekend getaway, choose from several lodging options and book a first-class room, studio or suite that’s loaded with amenities, including free high-speed internet service in case you need to do business in between activities.

After you’ve checked in you, you’re on your way to enjoying the peace and serenity that comes with the season with onsite tennis courts, wide open nature trails along the Truckee River and the nearby Tahoe’s Rim Trail, which borders the resort. If you’re ready to trade your skis for mountain bikes, Granlibakken has them available, too.

Before you start your day, you’ll need the added fuel if your plans demand quick energy and high-endurance. Granlibakken is well known for its hearty, hot breakfast buffet served daily for guests. Featuring fresh fruit, homemade muffins, quiches, blintzes, eggs, and the daily chef’s special, plus all the accompaniments – the buffet is always a crowd pleaser.

You can take your spring step further with the added physical challenge of California’s first Treetop Adventure Park, “where ropes course meets zip line on steroids.” The high-tree intertia-bending course consists of platforms installed along tree tops that are connected by various configurations of cable, wood, rope and zip lines to form bridges. Fully harnessed guests can zip, climb, walk, and maneuver their way through various obstacle courses, each with varying degrees of skills and challenges that promotes teamwork at 30-feet above the ground.

After spending the day taking command of those nearby hills by mountain bike, hiking shoes or at the Adventure Park, you can return to a luxurious pool, sauna and hot tub area to relax and rejuvenate. If you need your tired muscles worked, try a massage at the Lighthouse Spa.
