2 cool places in Tahoe for teens

The Tahoe weather report is in: blue skies and plenty of snow on the slopes are predicted for the long holiday weekend. Which means, of course, that you'll have to plan ahead and get to the slopes early (MLK weekend is usually a breakout weekend for ski resorts here). 

Got teens? Head for Squaw Valley (at left); with 4000 acres of fun and a noted freeride culture, there's plenty for them to do. Check into the special Ski & Snowboard Camp for Teens, ages 13-18 years (Jan. 17-19). The camp is geared for intermediate to advanced skiers and riders. And don't forget the Riviera Superpipe—Squaw Valley’s night-accessed pipe, open Friday through Sunday until 9 pm, and until 7 pm on weekdays. It's an awe-inspiring 435 feet long, with 18 1/2-foot walls. Photo credit: Squaw Valley; Tom O'Neill.

Or just let the kids rock out, literally, at Incline Village’s grand opening of High Altitude Fitness (formerly Incline Athletic Club). On Friday and Saturday (Jan. 16 -17), they can chill with presentations by world famous climbers –like free climber Lynn Hill and free soloist John Bachar – enjoy entertainment, appetizers, and raffle prizes, or just, well, hang.
