Apres Ski in Palisades Tahoe

Palisades Tahoe Village

Palisades Tahoe Village is small and feels almost European, and offers visitors everything they would need to make a stay at Palisades Tahoe Mountain Resort a fantastic experience.

The Village at Palisades Tahoe

The Village is small, with around a dozen or so main buildings, and has the close-knit feel of a quaint European village. It’s the ski area that draws visitors though, not the village. Major new developments by Intrawest in the past 20 years have transformed Palisades Tahoe into a true four-season recreation destination with a 13-acre village, estimated to have cost around US$250 million.

Phase One brought new slopeside lodgings, shopping and eateries to the resort’s base area. It dramatically changed the face of Palisades by adding three buildings, including 139 mountain-side condominiums, 19 stores and restaurants, and approximately 250 underground parking spaces. Phase Two of the project, was a European-style village featuring 640 lodgings units and 80 boutique stores, restaurants and galleries. These have redefined the resort and gone some way in meeting the need for more accommodations within Palisades Tahoe.

Apres Ski Bars & Restaurants in Palisades Tahoe

A wide selection of restaurants offer everything from fast food to Asian tapas, sit-down to self-service and varying in price and style from inexpensive and casual to fine dining.

There are 25 dining options in the Olympic Village base area including bars, restaurants, cafes, crepe stands and food trucks.

For après, check out KT Base Bar, which is bathed in sun until it sets and offers the best view of the mountain along with an excellent local beer selection. Le Chamois (The Chammy) and The Loft Bar are the old-timer “local” apres-ski hangout. Bar One has live music, dancing and pool tables, while the Plaza Bar is the hang out for sports fans, with sporting events on the big-screen TV. For a more intimate après ski experience, the bar at the PlumpJack Inn has a cozy fireplace and an excellent selection of wine. (Their selection of hard-to-find Californian wines and extensive wines by the glass program have garnered critical acclaim and a loyal following.)

Nearby in Tahoe City, you will find Pete ‘n’ Peter’s and the Bridgetender. Further north on the lake in Carnelian Bay, check out Gar Woods and with its famous Wet Woody drink and Lakeside dining. In Truckee, check out Casa Baeza and the Tourist Club.
