Fall & Winter Activites

Your all season resort in Hope Valley, CA. Grab a mug of hot chocolate and join us in the winter festivities! 

Blue-sky days, crisp nights, golden leaves, hot cocoa and mulled wine, cozy sweaters, a good book, stories by the fire with friends... it is fall at Sorensen's Resort in Hope Valley, California, the heart of the Sierra Nevada, just south of beautiful Lake Tahoe.


Cross-country skiing/ Snowshoeing

Come kick-and-glide through wilderness forest glades or across sweeping valley floors. With hopes of plentiful snow each year, we look forward to Mother Nature gracing the landscape with her white coat and the fun of winter sports. For our lodging guests, enjoy free use of our snowshoes (first-come, first-serve). Kirkwood Cross-Country is close by and available for rentals and groomed trails.

Alpine skiing/snowboarding

With Kirkwood Ski Resort only 15 minutes away and extensive backcountry it makes the perfect alpine getaway for downhill skiing enthusiasts and snowboarders. 

Snow Play

Take a slide down our sledding hill, build a snowman or even an igloo! Sorensen's is the ideal winter playground. 

Hot springs & swimming

Nearby Grover Hot Springs State Park features a naturally heated hot spring pool, as well as a large regular swimming pool. Lovely park grounds underneath the pines make a great picnic spot. Open all year, the hot springs pool is great for warming up after a day of winter play.

Sorensen's Wood-fired Sauna

One of our favorite things about the inn this time of year is having our guests fire up our Norwegian-style wood-fired sauna. It feels great especially that jolt you get if you dare jump into the snow outside.
