Stanford in the Sierra
Choose from two comfortable locations for your Stanford-style, Sierra Nevada adventure. Visit Stanford Sierra Camp on the south shore of Lake Tahoe on Fallen Leaf Lake for summer family camp and spring alumni programs, or bring your business for a meeting during our spring or fall conference seasons. North of Tahoe City at Alpine Meadows, visit the Stanford Alpine Chalet in winter for excellent access to snow sports or for a business meeting or family reunion other times of year.
Spring! — The favorite season of many Tahoe locals and the lowest rates at the Stanford Alpine Chalet! Before the summer crowds arrive, hike & mountain bike on newly opened trails with amazing views of waterfalls, newly budding trees and blossoming wildflowers. After a busy day, soak your tired muscles in the Chalet hot tub surrounded by beautiful, soaring mountain peaks. Call Chalet staff today at (530)583-1550 for availability and rates!
Stanford Alumni Association members now enjoy a $15 discount per night year round!
