Stay:  Our cabin (available for rental) on the north shore of Lake Tahoe is both family-friendly and dog-friendly. We prefer to rent homes or apartments when we travel with our children (Olive-15, Bijou- 5, Wilder- 2 months, Eero- 2 months).  It makes mealtime, nap time and bedtime so much easier.  These are a few of our family’s favorite places to enjoy the snow.
 
Play:
Skiing & Snowboarding at Alpine Meadows
 
Sledding at Granlibakken
 
Tubing at Northstar

Roast s’mores over the fire pits at the ice rink in Northstar Village.

Eat:
Tahoe House- great coffee & baked goods

Manzanita- perfect for a date night!
 
Mountain Grill at Sunnyside- The Mountain Grill is the more casual part of the restaurant and is open year-round for dinner.  It’s great for kids.  I recommend the fish tacos and hula pie.
