With Lake Tahoe experiencing an existential housing crisis, Palisades Tahoe is helping out its employees. SFGate reports that the California ski resort bought two properties around the area that will house their employees.
The first property that they bought was the Tahoe Vistana Inn. The building, which has thirty units, will be able to house fifty employees. The Tahoe Vistana Inn, which has hotel and apartment-style rooms, will accommodate short-term, full-time, and international visa employees.
The other purchased property, which is located at Kings Beach, is being referred to by Palisades Tahoe as a “longer-term solution to housing.” This property will have a total of eight units, with the ability to house fifteen employees. Some of them will be fenced in, allowing these residents to have pets.
Before the acquisition, Palisades Tahoe already owned or rented 13 other apartment buildings, along with a campground that can house employees that live in motor vehicles. These new acquisitions will help strengthen worker stability at the largest ski resort in California.
