The state of California has always been known for its large array of wineries, but what most people might not know, is that some of these wineries are located close to ski resorts.  This is especially true in the Sierras, and at Sierra-at-Tahoe Ski Resort, all of those wineries come to you as the ski resort pairs up with several vineyards for tastings throughout the ski and snowboard season.  Guests who have a lift ticket or season pass at the tastings receive 20% off their wine purchases, and local vineyards that have and are participating this season include Sierra Vista Vineyards, Lava Cup Winery, Madrona Vineyards, Boeger Winery, and Crystal Basin Cellars.


If learning to cook is more your speed, then Chez Cherie’s in La Canada is the place for you! It’s conveniently located minutes from Mt. Waterman Ski Area, so when you need a break from the hill, it’s easy to get to!  Chez Cherie’s offers private cooking parties, corporate culinary team-building programs, and even trips to gourmet growers and purveyors.  There’s certianly something for every cook, regardless of experience!
