This was the Tahoe weekend that my friends and I always strive for - a mix of local and hip, of outdoor adventure and relaxation. This trip is fairly budget friendly, but it is easy to spend money in Tahoe (what with the trendy shopping and tempting snow gear all over the place), so be warned. You just might head home with a killer new pair of skis and a bear carved out of a tree trunk.
The people who came on this trip are all recent college grads and we don't have the money for gorgeous hotel rooms and yearly ski passes, but we still manage to have a blast in the mountains. Tahoe has plenty of upscale venues to visit, but don't forget to appreciate the natural beauty of your surroundings while you're there. Making your own sled run can be just as fun as paying for a groomed course at a ski resort.
