In celebration of the upcoming 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, and the new batch of powder that has just fallen in Lake Tahoe, several bars in the area are pouring some splendid winter cocktails with distinct Olympics themes and flavors.
Tahoe is suffering from a sorrowful lack of snowfall this season, but on the brighter side, the weather up here has been beautiful for other outdoor sports that we don't normally get to enjoy in January. It's even better if you can enjoy them with a date or significant other.
The Tahoe area just got another two to three feet of snow and the ski resorts are celebrating with more open lifts and runs. It's really cold and powdery too. However, what if your idea of being in the snow doesn't consist of hurling yourself down a mountain?
Show your love of Big Blue by shopping locally and picking up a holiday gift that not only screams "I Love Tahoe!", but supports Tahoe shops, vendors and non-profits. These five gifts will keep your loved ones warm both inside (vodka) and out (fleece sweaters).
