It's official, Lake Tahoe has snow. Powdery perfect snow. Ideal to drop all plans of munching on turkey with the family and instead huff it up to the mountains to delight in the winter wonderland. Better act fast--before all the good powder melts under the hordes of folks boarding down the hills.
If you can, check into Deerfield Lodge for a night of luxury mixed with easy access to Heavenly lifts and the gondola.
I've also heard through the grapevine that Southwest Airlines has released some unbeatable deals to fly to Reno--something to the tune of two for one trips.
Finally, on your way up to the mountains be on the lookout for the fall colors dotting El Dorado County. I've heard it is quite a show right now, but going away fast.
Happy Winter Everybody!
