Palisades Tahoe Lodging

There are plenty of Palisade Tahoe hotels and lodging options on-mountain that are typically upscale and offer the convenience of staying right near the slopes. More economical options are to stay in towns such as Truckee and Tahoe City or the city of Reno Nevada. Another option is to stay on-mountain at Northstar and commute across to Palisades Tahoe for day trips.

Palisades Tahoe Lodging (Olympic Village)

The Village at Palisades Tahoe lodging is a handful of resort-managed upscale condo buildings located right in the village. Building 1 is located right opposite the funitel and tram, whilst the other buildings are just a very short walk to get to the lifts. The Village at Palisades Tahoe includes hotel rooms, and 1, 2, and 3 bedroom condos/apartments. 

The village area also has several other Palisades Tahoe hotels and lodging options, however most do come with a premium price tag, especially those that are close to being ski-in/ski-out.
