Should there be no vacancy at Black Bear Lodge this holiday season, another mountain hideaway might be available. This one is closer to Kirkwood, however, Heavenly Valley North is just a half hour away should you have a pass that allows you to ski or snowboard both (lucky you!). Here’s the scoop on the super-private Diamond Valley House that has a pond for iceskating (weather permitting) and miles of cross country skiing right out the door. Bonus: Grover Hot Springs mineral pool is just ten minutes away, ready for soaking your tired bones after a long day of having fun in the snow or hiking or biking.
The deluxe mountain hideaway close to Kirkwood and Heavenly Valley
Apres skiing: Come sit by the hearth with a hot cup of cocoa. Our place is cozy and Heavenly Ski Resort and Kirkwood are just minutes away. Great idea: snowshoe right out the back door in our big open meadow. A great place to build a snowman or sled with the kids.
The water in Lake Tahoe could cover a flat area the size of California by 14 inches. This is also enough to supply everyone in the United States with 50 gallons of water per day for 5 years. Coincidentally, the amount of water that evaporates from the surface of Lake Tahoe every year could supply a city the size of Los Angeles for 5 years.
