About Dave Geis

I moved to Tahoe after graduating from Coloradro State University in 1994 to follow my path as a professional snowboarder. I have never been able to leave Tahoe. I came here for the winters and stayed for the summers. I now own a Helicopter Skiing and Snowboarding operation in Valdez Alaska called Alaska Snowboard Guides.

Dave Geis purchased this house in 1999

Why Dave Geis chose Alpine Meadows

I bought this house because I loved the proximity to everything; ski lifts, backcountry skiing, mountain biking, hiking and fishing to name a few! Lake Tahoe is just a few miles away and you do not have any real commute to the ski area. Being this close to Squaw and Alpine changes everything. Lets face it who wants long drives to the ski area with traffic. Especailly on powder days and during storms. You will be in the hot tub while other are still driving home.

What makes this house unique

Winter shuttle from your driveway to Alpine Meadows on holidays and weekends. This can also take you to Squaw Valley.

Experienced Backcountry skiers with proper avalanche rescue equipment can ski home from Alpine Meadows.

Easy access to the house during the largest of storms.

Located at the beginning of the plows route into the neighborhood, we are among the first to get our road and driveway plowed.

Perfect for a family weekend!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for a beautiful mountain retreat! The jacuzzi on the deck under the trees was a lot of fun. Close to Tahoe City, Squaw and Donner Lake. The home was clean and comfy--- we really needed some AC at night though.

Great Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great week at this property at Alpine Meadows. We had room to spread out (2 smaller bedrooms on the same level as the kitchen, one bigger bedroom a flight above). The kitchen is nearly perfect - plenty of pots and pans, decent knives, cookie sheets, roasting pans, cutting boards, etc. Plus, enough dishes, silverware, wine and regular glasses so that we weren't constantly washing dishes so that we could eat again. In addition, there are decent spices and condiments already there - even ketchup. Only the Thermador oven caused us a little stress - it took a mysterious turning of knobs over and over to get it to stay on (we always managed to get it to run, however). The hot tub on the deck was a true treat and very welcome after a day of skiing. Plenty of off street parking if friends come to visit, and less than 5 minutes to Alpine if that's where you like to ski. All in all, we felt incredibly comfortable in this house and never felt on top of each other.

Alpine Escape

  • 4 of 5

Had a fantastic 4th of July stay at David's place. It was our first time being in a Tahoe cabin without it being ski season and it won't be the last. The Alpine area turned out to be perfect for us - total serenity but close to everything like King's Beach, Tahoe City and beyond. The cabin itself is wonderful with epic views out of every window, total privacy, and very dog friendly. The activities outside the cabin are endless with hiking, biking, swimming and horse back riding to name a few. We cooked some great meals in the kitchen and the kids put the the hot tub to good use. There's plenty of room for a family to spread out and still be gathered together for quality time.

Overall a great stay...thank you Dave.

Wonderful week !!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing week in a beautiful home. Thank you Dave for all your knowledge you made our trip so much better... The hot tub was great , beautiful views from it and views from every room! Everything was there for all of our cooking needs and there were many hikes right from the house! We want to come back as I know the ski shuttle stops out front and we don't even have to drive! Thanks again for an amazing week!!

Nice house but needs a little love

  • 3 of 5

The house is pretty and convenient but it's all in the details. Unfortunately it looked like no one had set foot there in a while: it was dusty, there were cobwebs, only one roll of toilet paper for 6 people, no soap in bathrooms, the pilot was out, the stairs to the house have no light so they are hard to climb at night, no little book welcoming you letting you know about the rules and nuances of the house. There's a lot of potential, but I would have liked to have seen a bit more love put into it.
