Looking for an easy Girl’s Getaway—chock full of good eats and great times? Give us 30-hours and we’ll give you giggles, lifelong memories and, of course, plenty of photo-fodder for Facebook. Enjoy this insider, local’s guide to the ultimate girls-only overnighter:

9:00 am – Visit The Mill Juice Shop in Truckee for an all-organic, cold-pressed juice or, a delicious Hub Coffee & Espresso latte.

10:00 am – Stroll through historic downtown Truckee for the picturesque scenery of this quaint mountain town or, a new pair of Paige skinnies at Kalifornia Jean Bar and a locally-crafted “Mommy-pot” from Riverside Studios… And yes, your husband did call to say buy anything you want.

12:30 pm – Savor a dungeness crab, lemon, arugula and béchamel flatbread cozied around an outdoor firepit at Moody’s Bistro.

2:30 pm – Hit the Tahoe Rim Trail off Highway 267/Brockway Summit for some heart-pumping female bonding and stunning bird’s eye views of Lake Tahoe.

4:30 pm – Enjoy (2) glasses of wine and an artisan cheese plate for $20 at Petra’s daily happy hour.

5:30 pm – Check into your multi-bedroom, luxury Village at Northstar condo. Most residences include a full kitchen, great room, fireplace, and outdoor terrace—the perfect get-ready, gathering space for you & all your besties.

7:00 pm – Pile into the Highlands Express Gondola for a S’moretini and decadent dinner at The Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe’s Manzanita Restaurant.

8:00 am – Throw on your Lululemon’s (shop coming to The Village at Northstar winter 2017/2018) and stumble out the door for a double, venti, extra foam caramel macchiato and spinach feta wrap at Starbucks Northstar.

9:00 am – Grab first chair at the Big Springs Gondola and enjoy a day with the girls swooshing down Northstar California’s pristine slopes.

12:00 pm – Re-fuel at the new, chic, mid-mountain Zephyr Lodge. Build-your-own ginger, garlic noodle bowl or perhaps a Beefy Mary is in order.

2:00 pm – “Tost” to good friends, the good life and an unforgettable girl’s weekend at this daily, bubbly Northstar California tradition, happening at the top of the Rendevous Chairlift.
