I vacationed at Granlibakken Resort in January of 2013. The entire resort was covered in snow and so beautiful. I rented snow shoes from the rental shop and traveled their groomed trail. This led right down to the Truckee river. This was my first time snow shoeing and I had an enjoyable and rewarding experience. Beautiful spot for photo ops. Granlibakken was also very close to top ski mountains including Squaw Valley, North Star, and Alpine Meadows; traveling was easy. Granlibakken also has a ski hill on sight which was a perfect slope for first time skiers. A truly family oriented resort.
The housecleaning crew and staff were very attentive and provided excellent service. There were superb breakfast spreads every morning, and the pub served delicious food (complete with cozy fireplace!). I would highly recommend trying the chicken schnitzel. The hot tub was very large and relaxing. There was also a heated pool and sauna nearby.
Overall, my experience at Granlibakken was outstanding! I would highly recommend this resort for anyone seeking a relaxing ski vacation in a absolutely beautiful location.
