Squaw Valley Farm to Table Dinner

We dined as a guest of the venue When planning our coming family vacation to Squaw Valley in Lake Tahoe, we wanted to have a unique dining experience. We had heard a lot of buzz about the intimate Farm to Table dinner experience, and the talented Executive Chef Tiffany Swan, so we made reservations to go on an epicurean adventure at the Olympic Village Lodge Garden in Squaw Valley.

We visited as a guest of the venue The one thing I am proud about instilling in my children is their love for adventure. I have been encouraging them always to go off the beaten path, and explore the world in a way that others don’t. Now that my children are getting older, they spend time researching our upcoming travel destinations to see where we can go exploring, and when planning our end of summer getaway to Squaw Valley, the high ropes experience was at the top of their list. While I used to love zip lining, rock climbing, and skydiving, I have been slowly developing a terrible fear of heights as I have gotten older. When my kids mentioned the high ropes, I got a knot in my stomach thinking about climbing high in the trees of Squaw...
