resort-at-squaw-creekThis year, there has been such an incredible amount of snow that skiing and snowboarding at Squaw Valley continues through May 30! Skiing in California in May is astounding. At, we like to plan for Mother’s Day. Squaw Creek Resort in Lake Tahoe is offering The Momentous Mother’s Day Escape!


The package features a one-night stay in a Deluxe Guestroom, two 50-minute spa treatments (choice of massage, facial or body treatment), Mother’s Day Brunch for two in Six Peaks Grille (I’ve eaten there — it’s an A+ brunch), a dozen roses and turndown service (with chocolate mints on the pillows!) for $449, plus taxes and daily resort fee.

To book this escape package, call 800.401.9501 and mention promo code MOMRSC. Or and enter the promo code.

I was at Squaw Creek in January and the facilities and service were amazing. It is under new ownership this year and there is a lot of buzz about the improvements in service.

I understand that $449 plus all the taxes is nothing to sneeze at, but this is true value. Check out to see if they still have the half day lift ticket for free! It should continue for the entire season. Work it!
