“It seems like everything sleeps in winter, but it’s really a time of renewal and reflection.” ― Elizabeth Camden
The beautiful array of autumn hues has been replaced with a white blanket and a majestic wintry landscape. The panoramic view from Cedar Glen Lodge allows for spectacular vistas of snow-capped mountains gently kissed by billowing clouds above the azure waters of Lake Tahoe!
After a long day of snow play, there is no better way to unwind than to spend time in one of our cozy cabins or in our holiday-themed wine bar in front of our stone fireplace! Weather permitting, we light our outdoor fire-pit and provide all the fixings for S’mores which promotes a convivial atmosphere to interact with guests from around the globe.
Cedar Glen Lodge offers you a plethora of amenities! Many of our beautifully renovated rooms and cabins boast Bain-Ultra Thermo Masseur tubs. The jets provide a rejuvenating experience that will relax tired muscles after a long day on the slopes. The Jacuzzi and sauna are also available throughout the winter months!
Other features offered at Cedar Glen Lodge include complimentary continental breakfast and WiFi, Wine Bar, Tesla / Universal charging station all in an eco-friendly environment. We are conveniently located to many world-class ski resorts, shopping, dining and more!
Whatever your desires may be, we will be happy to provide suggestions to make your Cedar Glen Lodge stay memorable! Some of our favorite activities include:
North Tahoe Regional Park: (1.5 miles) Located directly behind Cedar Glen Lodge, this family-oriented park offers snowshoeing, snowmobiling, sledding and much more! They also feature dog-friendly hiking trials.
Squaw Valley (15 miles) Some people can only ski Squaw and it’s easy to see why. It has some of the most challenging runs in North America. After purchasing Alpine Meadows a few years back, the duo of resorts boasts more terrain on a single lift ticket than any other resort in the area. The village at Squaw Valley is huge and is home to many restaurants, retail stores and more. Prices are high and it gets very crowded, but it is a unique skiing experience.
Northstar (7.7 mile) This resort is great for families who want a little more room. The terrain is mostly beginner-intermediate with some advanced runs. The village at Northstar is very festive during the Holidays. It offers many great retail stores, restaurants, wine bar and an ice skating rink surrounded with couches and fire pits. Tickets are on the pricier side of the spectrum, but very well-worth it.
Mount Rose (16.8 mile) Mount Rose is a great option for the more experienced skiers and snowboarders. It has some incredible double back diamond runs with amazing views. In addition, it has great intermediate terrain as well as a bunny slope or two. This is another great budget-friendly resort.
Diamond Peak (9.5 miles / Opens December 15th) Perfect for families, this budget-friendly resort offers beginner-intermediate terrain with truly stunning lake views. Diamond Peak is a smaller, customer service oriented resort, and offers a Child Ski Center for 3-7 year old kids. Please inquire at our front desk to purchase their lift tickets.
Tahoe XC (5.5 miles) An alternative to downhill skiing, Tahoe XC has your cross country skiing needs met. Just a short drive from our property, this ski area has great terrain to keep you in shape and beautiful views to keep you coming back.
Lake Tahoe Snowmobile Tours (4.6 miles) Experience the thrill of snowmobiling while enjoying unobstructed views of Lake Tahoe from trails through the National Forest. Guided tours are available for morning and afternoon sessions.
