Frisco, Texas
Reviewed 5 January 2016

We went there for Christmas vacation and teach our 7 and 9 yr old to ski. The rooms very very comfy and close to the ski slope. Restaurant food was good. Ski instructors very informed and patient. It was a great experience and our kids were so happy.

Thank you for sharing your experience at Granlibakken Tahoe. Our ski hill is perfect for beginners, and the whole hill can be viewed from the bottom of the slope, which is great for families. Skiing and sledding day passes are also half priced for lodging guests, which is a great value. We hope that you will be back again soon,...

We rented a 3-BR townhouse over the holidays. The breakfast spread is amazing and staff are incredibly helpful. The sledding run was great fun. Take a walk in the woods with snowshoes from the ski-hut.

I was pleased with my stay at Granlibakken Tahoe. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to meet my needs. Looking for hiking opportunities, Ron Parson, the general manager, provided me with his personal favorite hikes in the area. He recognized me later in the day and made a point to ask about my hiking adventures-personal attention!
