This review is for the snow play/ski area only. We took the 3 and 7 year old boys here for beginner ski lessons and sledding. Ski instructor (Patrick) was great, prompt, friendly, and patient with my son (even after he smashed into the SLOW sign and cried for 5 minutes , he was unharmed). The process was painless, and not...

We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed skiing and sledding with your family here at Granlibakken Tahoe, Brian. Our ski hill is perfect for beginners, with affordable rates and with fewer crowds than the larger ski areas. We always like to hear when one of our staff members goes above and beyond for a customer, and we are...

Our room was very cute and updated--a newly renovated studio in the main lodge. It was quiet and the beds were very comfortable (including the sofa bed) so we slept well. The studio has a living area with fireplace, dining table, 2 beds, and a full kitchen as well as an outdoor seating area. Breakfast was excellent. We will definitely...

Service is not the best. The sled/ski area is extremely slow. Lines are long only because their process is very inefficient. Nice place for small children and a great hot breakfast. The weekend requires a two night minimum. We enjoyed Tahoe City restaurants in the immediate area.

This place was nice - fun for the kids. We stayed in a 2 bedroom townhouse with a loft. This was a nice blend of vacation rental (full kitchen) and hotel service (daily housekeeping, toiletries like you would find in a hotel room). We stayed during a large storm when the power went out - and though some things could...

Our family of four stayed at Granlibakken for the first time during the week before Christmas and we had a wonderful time. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment, which was very comfortable and clean.
