Lake Tahoe, California
Around the third week of every March, Squaw Valley clears the snow off the decks of the giant jacuzzi tub at High Camp and declares itself once again the spring skiing capital, inviting spring revelers to trade their skis for bikinis and join the High Camp Hot Tub party at 8,200 feet. The tub-side Umbrella Bar serves up cold beers and icy cocktails to cool down the sun-drenched soakers, who can take in the spectacular views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding Sierra Nevada mountains. On select dates, a DJ or live band sets up adjacent to the Umbrella Bar, and bumps tunes throughout the afternoon. Not a skier? Hopping on the Aerial Tram in the Village at Squaw Valley takes you straight to High Camp. Don’t forget your sunscreen!
