TRAVEL // NEW YEAR’S EVE AT SOUTH LAKE TAHOE

If you follow us on Instagram, you might’ve noticed that I had spent New Year’s Eve in snowy South Lake Tahoe. I literally had this fantasy of staying in a warm, toasty cabin surround by soft, falling snow and having a blast essentially. And I am happy to say that is pretty much what happened.

The one thing I’ll say though is that fresh snow does have its downfalls. It was seriously frigid, and I didn’t realize how cold cold really is (typical bay area girl) until I’m standing in 7 degree F weather and unable to feel my toes. When you can’t feel your toes, like REALLY can’t feel them, frostbite begins to seem like very likely. Oh, and driving up a hill on slippery ice is something I didn’t quite foresee being a huge, scary deal but it was. Fortunately, we dealt with it.

Besides the small blips, it was a magical trip. South Lake Tahoe is rather quaint, with a very winter cabin look everywhere. We rented a cabin via VRBO that was nestled amongst tall, looming trees. There are plenty of large grocery stores, coffee shops, and of course, a few casinos in the area as well. Love to snow? Heavenly is just a few minutes away.

We also got caught in a mini snow storm. That was pretty cool.

Towards the end of the trip the sun came out and it was seriously glorious. The way the rays peaked through the trees, just beautiful.
