Though we do not ski, the resort offers plenty of fun activities to keep families like mine busy and happy. Family friendly activities include an outdoor ice skating pavilion, sledding, dog sled tours, horse drawn sleigh rides, and the nearby Village at Squaw. Tahoe experienced a massive snowstorm on the weekend I visited, so unfortunately I wasn’t able to take advantage of many of those activities. I did however, enjoy many great meals at the resort’s two signature restaurants; took the kids sledding (kinda of); and capitalized on every opportunity to warm my cold bones by the grand fireplace in the large, comfy lobby. UNEXPECTED HIGHLIGHT The hotel lobby wasn't physically connected to the tower that housed our guest room. Every time we left our room, even if it was just to grab a bite to eat from the onsite restaurant, we’d have to don our snow gear for the walk to the main building. Since we were forced to be outside in full snow attire, the kids and I enjoyed several spontaneous play sessions in the snow. Looking back at it now, it was many of those moments that made our trip. SHOPPING Resort at Squaw Creek is stress free and self-contained. While onsite, I bought new snow boots from Squaw Creek Sports (since the cheap pair I brought from home weren’t cutting it), small toys from Little Dumplings; a boutique toy store located just outside our hotel tower, and a bottle of wine from the deli. ROOM We stayed in a standard room with two beds. It was clean and the TV offered every comfort of home. The view from my room was stunning. I snapped a picture of it from my cel phone and posted it to Facebook, if that tells you anything. SLEDDING During a brief break in the weather, my family checked out some sleds.The groomed sledding hill is adjacent to Squaw Creek's ski lift, but due to the heavy snow, we weren't able to use it. Instead, I popped the kids on a sled and schlepped them around the property as best I could. I guess you could say I was a one man dog sled team. DINING Please see my review for Six Peaks Grille. Please see my review for Sandy’s Pub. Cascades, located downstairs from Six Peaks Grille, is not a restaurant advertised on the resort's website. It features a breakfast buffet and evening seafood buffet. At the breakfast buffet, expect a wide variety of healthy and hearty food in a family friendly, casual atmosphere. My son ate a ton of bacon and cereal. I opted for an egg white omelet from the omelet bar. Cascades offers surreal views of the valley. Disclosure: I received complimentary lodging and sledding. My review reflects my honest opinions and was not influenced by the Resort or its affiliates.
