Happy Tuesday! It’s been a while since I last did an instagram roundup (if you don’t follow me on instagram, you can here) so today I’m sharing a bunch of insta pictures from my recent trip to Lake Tahoe. I had a ton of emails/comments asking where we stayed, so I’m giving you all the resort details at the end of this post!
This was the view out of our room on Christmas morning… we stayed in a room with a “forest view” instead of “valley view.”
Every room in the resort also has a fireplace! The temperature in Tahoe was below freezing most of the time, so we took advantage of the fireplace a lot. It was so nice to wake up and sit by the fire with a cup of coffee!
One of our favorite things to do in Lake Tahoe is visit Olympic Village. There are tons of restaurants and shops, and you can take a tram to the top of the mountain, which is a really cool experience. It was so cold that we were constantly taking breaks for hot drinks!
I would definitely recommend renting a car (with four-wheel drive!) in Lake Tahoe. We used ours almost every day to drive to Olympic Village, Tahoe City or just exploring.
Being in Tahoe for Christmas was magical. Our resort had a gorgeous Christmas tree up in the lobby and had hung lights on all the trees outside.

Okay now for the resort info! We stayed at Squaw Creek Resort in Squaw Valley. You may remember that my family actually came here last January and we loved it so much that we wanted to go back for Christmas (plus California was an easy destination for my brother to fly to). If you ski or snowboard, you will definitely love Squaw Creek, there’s a slope right on the property. My family doesn’t ski but there was still plenty to do while we were there… we went sledding, tubing, ice skating, visited Olympic Village, Tahoe City and drove all around the lake exploring. We ate almost all of our meals at the resort… my family loves Sandy’s Pub – a little restaurant that serves burgers, salads, sandwiches, etc. I’ve heard that it’s also a lot of fun in the summer… there are several pools and a lot of lake activities you can do in the summer.
If you have a specific question, let me know in the comments! 🙂
