Thanksgiving in Lake Tahoe

The holiday where Americans consume over 40 million turkeys is one of our favorites, because it's the start to 6 buzzing weeks of family-friendly holidays in the area. Most resorts (weather permitting) open their doors to skiers/riders right before Thanksgiving Day! That means you can get out for a few turns before feasting with friends and loved ones. Squaw Alpine has announced their opening day for the 2018/19 ski season as November 18, 2018 – stay tuned for other area resort openings!
