The Block

Thanks to the recent expansion by The Block hotels, snowboarders will have a few more options when it comes to finding a friendly place to crash on the road. With its first location in South Lake Tahoe, California, going strong after more than two years in operation, the hotel chain is opening two more locations, one in Big Bear, California and the other–a full-service hotel–near Granite Peak Ski Area in Wausau, Wisconsin.

While many ski-resort-town hotels cater to the influx of snowboard and ski traffic that pours in each winter, The Block is really the first to focus in on the snowboard market.
