Tahoe City Hotels

When you're looking for a Tahoe City hotel in the wintertime, convenience is everything. With so much to do in North Lake Tahoe and somewhat unpredictable weather, you want to be sure that you are close to the action. Granlibakken's location close to many of Tahoe's premier ski resorts as well as the many amenities included in all stays will ensure that your next winter getaway is easy and memorable.

Granlibakken offers its own skiing and sledding hill onsite. The 300 vertical foot ski hill is perfect for beginners and young families. Tickets are just $30 non-holiday for adults, and $20 non-holiday for kids, and are always half-priced for lodging guests. The intimate hill is laid-back, with fewer crowds than some of the larger resorts. Granlibakken also offers lessons for beginners, with competitive beginner packages that include a lift ticket, a lesson, and equipment rentals. Sledding is always included in full-day lift tickets, great for the kids with a short attention span, or kids at heart who want the best of both worlds. The entire ski and sled hill can be viewed from the warming hut at the base, so you can enjoy a drink while the kids learn to ski.

The Ski and Sled Hill Warming Hut

Speaking of the warming hut, Granlibakken offers some of the best Mexican food in Tahoe at the log cabin at the base of the hill, which is the original structure from the 1940s, when the hill was first developed. With a wood stove in the center of the cabin and a sunny deck overlooking the slopes, it is the perfect place to warm up and enjoy a snack or lunch. The firepit outside is lit during the afternoon on the weekends, with s'mores available in the warming hut to roast for a quintessential family favorite.

Inside the warming hut Granlibakken also boasts a full-service rental shop, with alpine ski equipment, cross-country ski equipment, snowboards, and snowshoes. For those who prefer not to go downhill, Granlibakken's 1.5 mile groomed cross-country skiing and snowshoe course around the property is great for enjoying the peaceful woods surrounding the property. For more of an adventure, you can ski or snowshoe to Paige Meadows, a popular destination for cross-country skiers and snowshoers, and about a 6 mile round-trip from Granlibakken.

Skiing and sledding are available to the public, but it definitely pays to stay at Granlibakken. Ski and sled tickets at Granlibakken's hill are half-priced for lodging guests, which is a great value. A hot buffet breakfast is included in all rates, and offers the best way to fuel up for a winter day in Tahoe. Our Tahoe City hotel is located just one mile from downtown Tahoe City, and a 15-20 minute drive from Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, and a 10 minute drive to Homewood. Guests enjoy a location just one mile from the shores of Lake Tahoe, situated in a peaceful 74 acre valley.
