Early winter storms brought plentiful snow to the Lake Tahoe ski slopes.  Now we’re experiencing above average daytime temperatures with clear blue skies and sunshine.  This combination makes it an excellent time to schedule a midweek visit to the Stanford Alpine Chalet.

The Stanford Alpine Chalet

Locals know the best time to ski or snowboard is midweek when there are less people on the slopes and in the lift lines.  The Chalet is conveniently located at the base of Alpine Meadows ski resort and provides just what you need for a fun mountain getaway with friends or family.  Chef Ron prepares a hearty cooked-to-order breakfast each morning, Chalet staff drive you the short distance to and from Alpine Meadows, then relax apres ski with a glass of wine and hors-d’oeuvres in the Chalet’s great room with its stunning view of the slopes at Alpine and soak tired muscles in the outdoor hot tub.

You can have dinner at the Chalet and spend the evening in front of the fire, or if you get your second wind, head into nearby Tahoe City. Jake’s is a popular local spot where you can dine lakefront.  I recommend the udon noodle bowl, it’s authentic, delicious and brings back memories of my two years in Japan.  Another good lakefront restaurant is Christy Hill.

The midweek ski special is $230 for two and includes lodging, full breakfast, apres ski social hour, shuttle and a full-day lift ticket to Alpine Meadows for each person.  Call Geoff or Dusty at 530-583-1550 to book your visit.  The Chalet has just 14 rooms, and is sold out for most remaining winter weekends, but has available rooms midweek. Don’t forget your sunscreen!
