So you’ve just registered as a conference participant at Granlibakken. What next?
Well, first you can set up transportation to and from the Reno airport by calling our reservations line at 530-583-4242. The Reno airport is about an hour away, and our service is the most affordable way to get to and from Granlibakken.
When you arrive, our friendly front desk staff will check you in, and will also give you any materials that the conference organizers may want to pass on to attendees. Once in your room, you’ll kick your feet up in front of the fireplace of the studio that you booked, and perhaps watch some TV or catch up on some reading to relax.
Tahoe City is only a mile away, easy walking distance in the summer. Perhaps you’ll head to The Bridgetender for a burger and a beer, or Christy Hill for some wine and views of the lake. Our front desk will be happy to help you find a good restaurant and some nearby entertainment.
Every day at Granlibakken starts with breakfast. Our hot buffet-style breakfast has something for everyone, and is a great way to mingle and get to know your fellow conference attendees. When session starts, you’ll head into our Mountain Ballroom, set up for the speakers and presentations of the day. Our banquets staff will make sure that the pre-function area is kept well-stocked with water, coffee, tea, juice drinks, and light snacks. They will also work to ensure that all of the presentations and events go off without a hitch.
After session ends, it is time for lunch. Executive Chef Ron Eber and his kitchen staff will be sure to serve up something yummy, whether it be a flavorful build your own taco bar, or a relaxed outdoor barbeque.
Maybe you have some free time in the afternoon, which can be spent hiking or snowshoeing some of the trails that intersect with Granlibakken’s property and extend through the 74 acre valley that Granlibakken is situated on. You might choose to rent the bikes available at Granlibakken to explore the bike paths through North Lake Tahoe. Attractions like Emerald Bay and world-class ski resorts like Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are also just a short drive away. Or for a more relaxing afternoon, hang out on one of Tahoe’s many nearby beaches, and book a spa treatment at Granlibakken’s onsite Day Spa.
In the evening, our kitchen and dining staff will have your meal ready for you, whether it is a casual barbeque, a hearty buffet, or a delicious plated dinner. You might grab a couple of drinks with other attendees at the open bar, and then head down to the outdoor hot tub and sauna to unwind and relax.
