North Lake Tahoe Stories and Tips

Convenience to the slopes!

I just returned from a week's stay at the Olympic Village Inn from Feb. 13 to Feb. 22.

The one-bedroom condo is very cozy and perfect for a family of four. As you walk into the unit, you are led into the bedroom with a queen-size bed. Continue into the unit and there's a vanity area/bathroom that separates the bedroom from the living room. The living room has a pullout double size sofa bed. Also in the room is a VCR and CD/radio. There's a kitchenette in the living room area. The kitchenette is equipped with two burners, a microwave, small refrigerator, dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker, pots and pans, dishes, silverware, and cooking utensils. Our room had a balcony that had a view of the Squaw Valley ski slopes.

The best thing about the resort is the convenience to the slopes. Hop on the free shuttle provided by the hotel and you are on the slopes within minutes. After a long day of skiing, just hop back onto the shuttle and you're sipping the complimentary hot coffee and hot tea in the resort's lobby while the other skiers are still fighting the traffic getting out of the parking lot. The resort has a large heated pool that is available even during the winter months. The resort also has many outdoor hot tubs that are perfect for relaxing your sore muscles from skiing. The hotel lobby has a sitting area with a television, and free internet access on the computer for guest use. Right out the doors of the lobby are three coin operated washer and dryers for use by all guests. The resort also provides ski storage, so you don't have to lug your skis up to your room. The recreation department provides free use of sleds and snow shoes as well.

The staff at the resort is very friendly and helpful.

I would highly recommend staying here!
