The sky was a wash of pink as I pulled up to The Landing Lake Tahoe Resort and Spa. Enamored by my spectacular surroundings, I put off check-in to enjoy the show nature was featuring. I ordered a glass of New Zealand sauvignon blanc lakeside at Jimmy’s, The Landing’s Greek-inspired restaurant.
Tranquil Tahoe: Resort at Squaw Creek A little languor by the lake, with snacks By Viju Mathew “Snickerdoodle?” asked the shuttle driver as I took my seat. That’s a little familiar, I thought, before I noticed his container of homemade cookies. I grabbed a couple, rationalizing that the detoxifying spa treatments I would soon be receiving would off set the sugar bombs, and sat back to watch the picturesque mountain village of Squaw Valley come into view. Well-being takes many forms. In the case of the Resort at Squaw Creek, it comes in the form of the 10,000-square-foot spa, the most expansive ... Read more
Squaw Valley USA – Extreme Makeover Squaw Valley Puts On A Friendly New Face By Paul Tolme Photographs By Keoki Flagg On a crisp and clear afternoon at Squaw Valley, Jonny Moseley disembarks from the KT-22 lift high atop Squaw Valley and skis to a stop. Good thing, because my legs are toast. For most of the day, I’ve been chasing Moseley around Squaw, seeking out powder stashes and soft turns in Sun Bowl, Women’s Downhill, Siberia Bowl, and a dozen more runs all over the mountain, all while listening to tales of his former high-flying life as a World Cup ...

Earlier in the day, Moseley entertained onlookers by performing a ski-ballet routine, pirouetting and spinning downhill like Suzy Chapstick in her snow-ballerina heyday.
Ski instructors, who spend most of the season teaching others, come to this event to learn from each other, improve their craft, and keep their certifications current (as well as play a little bit.)
Photo: Shelly Strazis At the Heavenly Ski Resort in South Lake Tahoe the action doesn’t stop when the chairlifts do. The Horizon is located at the end of South Lake Tahoe’s casino row, the strip of high-rise hotels, neon lights, and barely believable bling that juts suddenly skyward at the Nevada border. In a B-list casino town, the Horizon is a C-lister, the type of place you end up when you’re too drunk to notice or, like me, looking for a raunchy good time. I settle into my seat in the back of the showroom, order a blended scotch, and ... Read more
