[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]The 2015-16 ski season is shaping up to be one for the books! With so much to do on and off the slopes, we’re here to help you figure out how to maximize your winter fun. Here are our top 10 experiences at Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows that we strongly suggest you add to your Tahoe bucket list:

    1. Ice Bar at Alpine Meadows
      Slide up to the Ice Bar tucked away on the backside of Alpine Meadows and soak up the casual, inviting ambiance usually reserved for the beach. Kick back in a lounge chair and enjoy a cold beverage and barbecued bratwurst.
    2. Dawn Patrol at Squaw Valley
      Serious about first chair? Get on the lifts before anyone else for first tracks down untouched powder or perfectly groomed corduroy depending on the day’s conditions. The sunrise over Lake Tahoe isn’t too shabby either.
    3. Snowshoe Dinner Tours at Alpine
      Experience the magic of the Tahoe forest under the light of a winter moon. Snowshoe up to the mid-mountain Chalet at Alpine Meadows for an intimate seated dinner, then come out into the crisp night air for a refreshing walk back downhill.
    4. The North Face Mountain Guides
      A good mountain hides her secrets well. Discover the secret spots of Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows with a professional guide from The North Face. Comes with priority lift line access and a free ThermoBall jacket as well.
    5. PCT Bowls at Alpine
      Arguably the best terrain on the mountain, these bowls deliver deep pow turns, full face grins and are best experienced with a North Face Mountain Guide.
    6. Scenic Aerial Tram Ride
      Take the scenic Aerial Tram 2,000 vertical feet up to High Camp where you can take in jaw-dropping, panoramic views of Lake Tahoe as well as access to a mountaintop pool and ice skating rink.
    7. WinterWonderGrass
      The music will echo off the mountains and reverberate through the meadows. Bluegrass music was born in the mountains and it just sounds better here. Join us for the biggest bluegrass festival of the season, right here in Squaw Valley.
    8. Top of Alpine Bowl to Base
      Cruise down 1,802 vertical feet of wide open groomers from the top of Alpine Meadows, where the view of Lake Tahoe is so immense it completely takes up your goggle vision.
    9. SnoVentures
      You love snow. You want your kids to love snow. Get them addicted to winter fun with tubing, mini snowmobiles and plenty of hot chocolate, topped with what they love the best – spending time with you.
    10. Stay at the Village
      Park the car and forget about it. When you stay in the Village at Squaw Valley, everything is right at your fingertips. Walk to the lifts, the hot tubs, the fire pits (don’t forget the marshmallows), restaurants and shopping. We’re pretty sure you’ll forget that traffic even exists.
