The Ultimate Winter Guide to Truckee-Tahoe

If you’re ready to explore beyond Colorado this winter season, we know just the place: Truckee-Tahoe! Our partner, Cedar House Sport Hotel, lies in the heart of Truckee-Tahoe.  Head left and you’re on your way to Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley (recently renamed Tahoe Palisades) with your IKON pass.  Head right and you’re 10 minutes from the entrance of EPIC’s Northstar Mountain. 

Members also now receive 15% off holiday rates there, in addition to 50% off on Sun-Wed and 25% off Thur-Sat (non holiday).

Here’s our take on how to stay and play in Truckee-Tahoe and celebrate this dazzling slice of earth in all its winter glory.

7 ways to play in Tahoe this winter:

1. Set up Basecamp

Settle into your spacious king suite, chic designer room or Fido-friendly digs at Cedar House Sport Hotel. Owners Jeff and Patty Baird have cultivated a space rooted in fresh mountain air, pure water and irresistible mountain trails. This Truckee home base invites you to play hard and then rest easy.

2. Choose From 14 Ski Areas

Yes. There are 14! Find meticulously groomed family runs and an exciting European village at Northstar. Knee-deep pow at Sugar Bowl. And 4,000 acres across six peaks at Palisades. Revel in that famous Sierra Nevada snow cycle and California sunshine.

3. Explore Cross-Country Skiing

Peaceful, pristine cross-country ski areas rest just 20 miles from your hotel. The Donner Cross Country Center offers dog-friendly trails and jaw-dropping views of the Sierra crest. The Royal Gorge Cross Country Ski Resort is North America’s largest and Tahoe’s was voted among the top 10 XC resort in America.

4. Get Out in the Backcountry

Experienced guides are ready to take you into the wild on a powder hunt like no other. Tour Sugar Bowl and Olympic Valley side country, the coveted Mt. Rose wilderness or the high peaks on the west shore of Lake Tahoe. The North American Ski Training & Climbing school offers avalanche and backcountry travel courses from Cedar House Sport Hotel.

5.  Après Like a Pro

An exhilarating day in deep snow calls for a cheers or two. Steps from your Cedar House room, Callaghans Bar hosts a steep selection of locally sourced wine and beer from Truckee River Winery, 50/50 Brewing and others. Munch on the bar’s organic dark chocolate sea salt caramels and grab a pack of housemade cookies for later.

6. Savor Blissed-Out Recovery

Soak in the eco-luxury vibes at Cedar House. Downtime means gourmet in-room coffee and tea service, German down duvets and Egyptian cotton robes. Visit the outdoor hot tub and star gaze before crashing for the night on your pillow top mattress.

7. Discover Stella

Cedar House’s on-site farm fresh restaurant, Stella, focuses on wholesome and flavorful food, sourcing ingredients within a 100-mile radius. You’ll find open kitchen warmth and positive energy with a nod to Mexican, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean flavors. Refuel and find comfort in Chef Lupe’s soulful, yet simple seasonal dishes such as hearty tacos, shareable Mediterranean apps and indulgent steak and dessert options.
