It’s a little off the beaten path, but the food is really good. The lunch counter has one of the best burritos in the area and the atmosphere is pretty cool (it has the feel of an old ski lodge). I have lunch here at least once a week.

Derek, thank you for reviewing our Snack Bar at Granlibakken's Ski and Sled Hill. We have been told many times that the Snack Bar has the best Mexican food in town! Don't forget to check out our Cedar House Pub this winter, open Fridays and Saturday 5 - 9 PM. As a local, the Pub offers 2 - for - 1 entrees every Friday night! Thank you for your continued patronage.

I and my family have stayed 4 ski seasons at Granlibakken. The staff are friendly and helpful going above and beyond in make us feel welcome and comfortable. The rooms are a very comfortable and relaxing to place to rest after a day on the slopes. Granlibakken is located with in minutes of great ski destinations such as Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Homewood.

We always start our day with a trip to Granlibakken's breakfast buffet. The food is delicious and fresh. My sons and I enjoy a finishing up the day with a good soak in the Hot Tub. Then we get ready to do all again the next day.

We have made trips to Lake Tahoe in the past 4 years and always look forward to our stay at Granlibakken.

We had a wonderful dinner with friends and family at the Granlibakken Pub. Upon entering the Pub the kids immediatly found a place on the hearth in front of warm and inviting fire. The adults found the bar, ordered a drink and joined the kids at the fireplace while waiting for a table. After a short wait ( while listening to live music) we were seated and had our orders taken right away. Our two favorite dishes were the fish and chips and the Holland Michigan Chicken.The kids scarfed up the burgers and spaghetti as well. All the portions were generous and the price was very reasonable. A great place to go with the family after a day of sledding and skiing on Granlibakken Hill!

Family and friends spent Thanksgiving at the resort. The evening feast was incredible and included turkey, stuffing, salads and more. This is a great way to get together with family and spend the evening feasting and then breakfast the next morning included in the room rate.

Room Tip: All rooms were great!

We stayed here between seasons and loved it. Tahoe is so beautiful in the fall. They have a ropes course that is very large, creative and well done. The rooms are a decent size with a big kitchen. I would recommend this to everyone!
