Yes, there are probably a handful of threads out there with some of this info, but I'd love to get some input from others on stuff to do when the skiing isn't that great. Starting next week, we're going to have a lot of people in Tahoe and not much snow for them to ski on. I'd love to hear others' ideas on things to do, in addition to skiing, during times like these. I'll start with a couple ideas:
My family loves arts & crafts type projects. I'll often bring some along - making window stickers is a favorite. There are some great toy stores in Tahoe City and Truckee that have projects and supplies to entertain in this vein.
CandleMaking - there used to be a place in Squaw Village called Waxen Moon where you could make your own candles. I believe it is gone now, but there's a similar operation in the Village at Northstar. It was always a fun way to kill a few hours on a bad weather day with the kids.
Skating - there is ice skating in a few places around. There's the Village at Northstar, Resort at Squaw Creek, and even High Camp at Squaw (is that one open yet?).
Movies - there's a movie theatre in Truckee on Brockway Rd., apparently there's one in Northstar, there's a small one in Tahoe City, and one in Incline.
Bowling - Bowl Incline.
Take a Ski Lesson - yep, you can work on fixing lots of bad habits even on bad snow. The lift lines are probably going to be long during the holidays. It wouldn't be a bad time to sign up for a lesson and work on some specific challenges that are holding you back from reaching the next level.
What else you got? Creative, fun ideas are welcome. Thanks.
