Enjoy all the winter fun Granlibakken has to offer during your stay.

  1. Ski and stay packages: Not only does Granlibakken have a great ski and snow play area but it also offers access to your choice of seven world class ski mountains.  The resort’s popular and affordable stay and ski packages includes lodging and lift tickets at Squaw Valley USA, Northstar-at-Tahoe Resort, Alpine Meadows, Homewood Mountain Resort, Sugar Bowl, Mt. Rose, Heavenly Mountain Resort or Sierra-at-Tahoe with rates starting at $150 mid-week.
  2. Ski and snowplay: Granlibakken has its own intimate ski and snowboard hill and separate snowplay area, ideal for families with children, beginning and intermediate skiers. Affordable and packed with just as many thrills found at nearby ski mountains, guests can rent equipment (skis, snowboards, poles, boots, cross country skis, snowshoes and helmets) and then climb aboard a lift for a full or half-day worth of downhill adventure.
  3. Snowshoeing: Strap on a pair of snow shoes, and explore the action off the beaten path at the Tahoe Cross Country Center. The terrain is wide open with trails to stomp through with specially-fitted snowshoes.
  4. Cross country skiing: Tahoe Cross Country Center can also hook you up with a pair of cross country skis so you can explore acres of forest trails for a weekday or weekend worth of discovery and lose yourself with the high sierra backdrop and quiet serenity that only cross country trails can offer. Guests have easy access to popular trailheads that provide miles of ungroomed terrain.
  5. Swing through the snowy trees: Looking for a winter skiing alternative? Guests can choose the ultimate physical challenge at California’s first-of-its-kind Treetop Adventure Park, recently voted No. 1 as a Lake Tahoe activity by TripAdvisor.com. This action-packed playground is an obstacle course set along the tree tops, 30 feet off the ground. Fully harnessed guests can zip, climb, walk, and maneuver their way through a number of obstacles, each with varying degrees of skills and challenges.
  6. Go snowmobiling: Mount a sled and take a high octane snowmobile adventure in the Sierra’s winter backcountry. Among a handful of tour operators near Granlibakken, Lake Tahoe Snowmobile Tours offers all-ages tours of more than 100 miles into the back country.
  7. Ice skating: Grab a pair of blades and head for the ice. There are nearby skating facilities at Squaw Valley’s Olympic Ice Pavilion, Squaw Creek, and at the Village at Northstar.
  8. Mush with the dogs: Wilderness Adventures offers dog sled tours throughout the winter. Experience the thrill and excitement of touring in complete safety behind a team of eager huskies. Share the beautiful sights and open spaces as a dog sled team guides you on a great adventure. Bring your camera and enjoy a dog sledding adventure at Lake Tahoe under the reigns of experienced musher Brian Maas.
  9. Cruise the lake: You’ll never believe how majestic the snowcapped mountains look from the middle of Lake Tahoe. Take a ride on the Tahoe Gal any time of the year for the ultimate, 360-degree view of Lake Tahoe.
  10. Take in a spa: Relax the mind, kneed the body, tap into your spirit and find balance with a number of spa treatments offered at Granlibakken’s Day Spa. Whether you’re looking for deep tissue massage, reflexology treatments or a body wrap, the Day Spa offers two treatment rooms and a number of wellness packages each aimed at taking the edge off those things that stress the body and mind.
