Released on: 01/10/2011
(Tahoe City, Calif.) – Granlibakken Resort & Lodge (www.Granlibakken.com) is poised to usher in winter with what is arguably Tahoe’s best stay and ski package, as well as a healthy serving of holiday celebrations and season-long offers. Granlibakken, Lake Tahoe’s original ski resort, has been appealing to families for generations with its rustic mountain ambiance accented by the creature comforts of a full service resort.
Tahoe’s Best Stay and Ski Value
The Stay and Ski Package starts at just $114 per person, per night mid-week ($138 weekends), and includes one night of lodging, hot buffet breakfast, and choice of the day’s lift ticket to one of seven Lake Tahoe resorts: Squaw Valley USA, Northstar-at-Tahoe Resort, Alpine Meadows, Homewood Mountain Resort, Sugar Bowl, Mt. Rose, and Sierra-at-Tahoe. Alternate activity options offered in conjunction with the package allow guests to exchange their daily ticket for a $50 credit towards any spa service at the Lighthouse Spa or for one day trail access at the Tahoe Cross Country Center including rental equipment. Ski shuttles are provided by Alpine Meadows, Homewood Mountain Resort, and Squaw Valley offering door-to-door access and convenient drop off at resort base areas.
Thanksgiving Dinner Without the Work
Leave the apron and oven mitts at home this year and get a taste of the holidays with a traditional Tahoe Thanksgiving. Sit back and relax with a feast for the entire family as the resort takes the pressure out of preparing a complete holiday dinner by doing all the work. A turkey carved table-side and a full selection of all the trimmings is on the menu, as well as vegetarian options. The feast wouldn’t be complete without leftovers, so guests can look forward to turkey sandwiches the next day as the staff at Granlibakken prepares a package full of tasty treats to take home.
