Napa, California
Reviewed yesterday NEW

This place is awesome and beautiful! Staff was great and very helpful.. Nice place to take the kiddos if they are beginners in snowboarding, easy hill and the cost for the the day is affordable. The best thing was you are within close distance to restaurants and shopping centers. Only thing I wish they had more than one laudromat.

We visited Granlibakken for a quick weekend snow getaway with the kids. We were looking for somewhere the kids could play and sled. This turned out to be the perfect place! There are two sledding hills; a small one and a bigger one. My 3-year-old started on the small hill and quickly begged me to take her down the big...

I attended this kind of meeting several times, but here is the best place for meals (breakfast and dinner). The staff was also nice and friendly. The weather was not so good this time, but we enjoyed the stay.

6th time we've stayed. Very very kid friendly. Free breakfast buffet is awesome! Lots of snow, sledding hill, small ski hill, and plenty of hiking to do in the area. Very cozy home feel with staff that are consistent (seen the same faces for a few years now). Extremely accommodating to our needs. Pleasant happy staff that are welcoming and...

A day is definitely not enough at this resort, should do a 2-day minimum stay to really have fun at such a perfect place. Highly recommend the place. We had a very peaceful stay and enjoyed every minute of it.

The sledding slope is alot of fun, and offers good speed (no magic carpet). The ski lift is a tow-lift but is sufficent; maybe not the best type of lift for first time snowboarders. But the heated spa is huge (20-30 people) and alot of fun. The large pool and baby pool are both not heated to a warm degree,...

I just spent the weekend at Granlibakken, Tahoe City. It was wonderful for many reasons. First of all, our accommodations..... there were 6 adults and 2 children. Our condo was 3 bedrooms with an enclosed loft, basically a 4 bedroom unit with a full kitchen and living/dining area. I had brought up a dinner prepared at home, but needed cooking...

Granlibakken was the perfect place to take my 12-year-old for his first-ever skiing experience. It's tiny and friendly, and we had a wonderful ski instructor. Also, the FANTASTIC breakfast (with an enormous selection of great food) is included in the room price. (We stayed in the main lodge.) On our third day, we skied at Homewood, which is only 5...

Granlibakken has a wide selection of room availability - we've visited multiple times so we've stayed in a two bedroom, a suite that sleeps four (picture attached), and a single room for two (like a hotel room).

It's a great spread of hot and cold items - cheese omelettes, cheese blitzes, bacon, sausage, potatoes, muffins, croissants, bagels, toast, cereal, fresh fruit, yogurt, hot oatmeal, coffee, hot chocolate, tea, variety of juices.
