You Do Look Good in Blue

Winter Vacation 2015 to North Lake Tahoe

Has anybody ever told you that blue looks good on you? Like deep dark blue … Lake Tahoe blue, to be exact! This winter, head north for adventure! North Lake Tahoe is home to 11 premier ski resorts that offer winter fun beyond the slopes (skating, sledding, and lively après scenes, to name a few). It's also one of the best places to simply relax, unwind, and unplug. Tranquil snowshoe treks and simple strolling paths lead right up to the water's edge—and by that we mean the largest alpine lake in North America! Or liven things up at one of the upcoming winter events, including family-friendly Snowfest (February 27–March 8): days and nights packed with parades, parties, concerts, and activities all over North Lake Tahoe. Save the Date for the best bluegrass fest in the West: Winter Wondergrass (March 20–22) at Squaw Valley has a stacked lineup, including headliner Trampled by Turtles and Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers. If saving money is a New Year's resolution, check out smart ski packages, like the Nordic 12-pack, Throwback Thursday at Tahoe Donner ($13 children's lift tickets and $23 adult lift tickets!), and the Tahoe Super 4. This winter, try something blue: North Lake Tahoe looks good on you!

BONUS LODGING: Look out for plenty of winter getaway packages. From bed & breakfasts to resort hotels, there is an affordable option for everyone. For other cool deals plus itinerary suggestions, Go Tahoe North has you covered!
