The deal
Despite the mercury slowly rising, you still have a little wiggle room when it comes to spending quality time on the Lake Tahoe ski slopes. From now through April 10, the recently renovated, AAA Four-Diamond Resort at Squaw Creek is advertising a stellar ski-and-stay deal that will have you shredding the powder, instead of your money. For just $155/person/night, this package includes:

•    Accommodations in a Deluxe Guestroom Forest View (normally $269/night)
•    Daily breakfast for two adults in Six Peaks Grille
•    Two adult lift tickets to Alpine Meadows Ski Resort, per night stayed
•    Complimentary shuttle transportation to/from Alpine Meadows

About the resort
Squaw Creek, which has consistently ranked among Condé Nast Traveler’s "Top 50 Ski Resorts in North America," rests high in the apexes of California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains — the site of the 1960 Winter Olympic Games. Besides its prime location (and a $53 million overhaul), the luxurious, full-service resort boasts a shopping promenade, four sit-down restaurants, and a spa.

In the activities/amenities department, Squaw Creek impresses once more, offering guests an 18-hole championship golf course, ice-skating rink, heated outdoor swimming pools, waterslide, hiking and biking trails, and even on-site cross-country ski and fly fishing centers.

As for accommodations, the resort’s 405 tastefully decorated rooms and suites are outfitted with flat-screen televisions and provide guests with unparalleled views of the surrounding mountainous landscape.
