A Tahoe Winter Getaway with the Radovanovic Family
Vacations with small children might terrify quite a few parents — and for good reason! Traveling with kids requires a whole new level of planning and patience. Even the smallest trip includes a detailed checklist:
Favorite stuffed animal/blankie/bottle they absolutely, positively cannot live without √
Special snacks (read: chocolate) for diffusing embarrassing meltdowns √
Extra outfits for all their messy meals √
Bath time, bedtime, and playtime essentials √√√
Now, add some snow to the mix and you have a real party!
One of our guests, Ana Radovanovic, was ready for that snow party with her family (husband and two young children — ages 4 and 2). Originally from Serbia and now residing in San Diego, Ana describes herself as a hardworking, travel-loving mom who places her family above everything else. Her biggest goal in life is, "to give my children a broad view of the world and expose them to as many cultures and languages as I can. I love learning from my children, but I also love teaching them about the world around them."
And one element of the world her kids hadn't experienced yet was...SNOW!
Ana decided their next family adventure would be the beautiful alpine area of Lake Tahoe, CA. The mountains were expecting tons of fresh powder that winter, and our Northstar Lodge resort had all the amenities to keep her family super cozy and comfortable.
“I thought the resort was out of a fairytale. Beautifully organized, beautiful architecture, everything in accessible walking distance — one of the best places for families to spend time together,” said Ana about their experience at Northstar Lodge, located at the base of Northstar California ski area in Truckee, CA.
