Bring in the New Year with an ethereal dinner and moonlit snowshoe tour at The Chalet at the renowned Alpine Meadows Resort in Tahoe City. First, you’ll enjoy dinner at the Bavarian-style beer-garden, The Chalet, where you will be served an Alps-inspired menu featuring chicken cordon bleu, potato cheese soup and apple strudel. Then, you’ll hike a quarter mile to Alpine Meadows’ base lodge to begin the moonlit snowshoe tour. This is truly a unique and magnificent experience for family, friends and couples to enjoy. There are eight event dates: Dec. 26 and 27; and in 2018, Jan 13 and 14; Feb. 17 and 18; Feb. 24; and March 10. Spaces are limited, with only 50 reserved seats available at a time.
