Savings Across the Board for Tourists to Lake Tahoe

May 5, 2009 at 9:26 AM | by | Comments (0)

If you’ve never been to Lake Tahoe, now's the time to go, as Zephyr Cove Resort is offering 25 reasons to visit the lake and stay with them. It’s actually only about three hours from the Bay Area and eight hours from Los Angeles, and you can even swing by Yosemite National Park for a total earth lovin’ vacation—except for that carbon emissions thing.

The biggest of those 25 reasons to visit Zephyr Cove is its newest deal--50 percent off all its rooms, suites, chalets, and cabins through June 30. Just enter mayjune25 when booking, and that lakefront cabin will be yours—just try to keep the John Candy reenactments from The Great Outdoors to a minimum. If you'd rather stay in the lodge, we found rooms for less than $80 for this weekend—not too shabby.

Ski Resorts in Summer: Actually Worth Visiting?

May 15, 2008 at 5:00 PM | by | Comment (1)

Going to a ski resort in the summer sounds like a half-baked idea that your dad comes up with to save a couple bucks while getting some fresh air. Can't you just imagine standing at the base of a mountain while dear old dad waxes on about how beautiful it must be all covered in snow? Next year, kids!

But what if your old man was craftier than that and took you to the new 3,100-foot Heavenly Flyer zip line at Heavenly Mountain Resort? It's the longest zip line in the lower 48 and hits speeds of 50 mph on the way down. It would be a lot cooler if you had to hold on for dear life like on the zip lines you grew up with, but insurance companies get kind of grouchy about stuff like that: You'll have to settle for being strapped into a seat.

For $30 a ride, this is a unique way to experience some of the best views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding mountains. No doubt taking in the sights from 50 feet up at 50 mph will make for unforgettable daddy issues for decades to come.

(Btw, the Flyer doesn't re-open for the summer season until Friday, June 13.)
