Member Monday: Ski-Loving Family Hits the Slopes at Lake Tahoe

First-time Global Discovery Vacations traveler Shawn C. and his family of six needed a ski trip for the whole family. What better way to accommodate everyone than with a comfortable two-bedroom condo at The Ridge Pointe resort in Stateline, Nevada? With Lake Tahoe’s numerous slopes, read about Shawn’s favorites in this week’s Member Monday.

Where would you recommend a fellow member to go to…
Eat:
Our meals were mostly prepared at home. We ate our one meal in Heavenly Village near Stateline, Nevada, at Dough Custom Pizza. It was good for a large group with a lot of individual preferences.

Have fun/attractions:
Skiing! We were three minutes from Stagecoach Lodge at Heavenly Ski Resort.

Kids Skiing Lake Tahoe

Sierra at Tahoe is a great place to ski with the whole family.

We prefer to ski at Sierra at Tahoe because we have four kids under 10 that ski and it’s a little smaller and caters to families.

What was your favorite…
Resort/Condo Amenity:
Indoor/outdoor swimming pool and spa.

Place to go in the destination:
There are at least 10 ski resorts within 30 minutes.

Why did you choose this destination? Were you traveling for a special occasion?
The rooms are perfect for large families. We are a family of six, so it was a good fit. This was our winter ski getaway so it was important that we were close to the Tahoe area ski resorts.

What was your favorite memory of your vacation?
So many moments to remember. After a long day of skiing, sitting with all four kids and my wife next to the fire, watching the moon rise over the moon-lit ski slopes out our balcony window.

Any tips for a traveler going to this resort or destination? Anything you think they should bring?
Bring warm clothes and skis.
