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.

Our Sierra Locations and Programs

  • Stanford Sierra Camp at Fallen Leaf Lake

    Leave your daily commutes and cell phones behind, and escape to a mountain summer camp filled with family fun! Stanford Sierra Camp sits at 6,377 feet on the shore of sparkling Fallen Leaf Lake near Desolation Wilderness in the Lake Tahoe basin. Brisk fresh air, glistening cobalt-blue water, the pungent smell of pines and a twinkling night sky frame the picture for one magnificent, memorable experience for your whole family.

  • Stanford Alpine Chalet at Alpine Meadows

    The Chalet offers individual and group accommodations year-round. In the winter, stay right across the street from Alpine Meadows ski resort in one of the Chalet's 14 cozy mountain-style rooms, each with private bath and view. Relax on the deck with spectacular Sierra peak views, savor a glass of wine fireside with fellow Stanford alumni guests or delight in the alpenglow from the outdoor hot tub. Other times of year, rent the Chalet exclusively for your business retreat, wedding or family reunion.
