Lake Tahoe ski resorts reported more than 3 feet of fresh powder last week, with several chairlifts opening early (the majority of the resorts are slated to open in mid-November). Best deal: the $299 Ski Lake Tahoe Six-Pack Lift Ticket offers six days of skiing/snowboarding at all seven Ski Lake Tahoe resorts. The lift tickets are completely transferable (friends, family or complete strangers can use them) and they do not have to be used on consecutive days. Details, click here . . . . Mammoth, meanwhile, reports more than a foot of snow from the storm, with temps cold enough that the snow guns are going at night.  Opening slated for Nov. 8 . . . . Might be the best Halloween San Francisco has ever seen. On Wednesday, the city is staging a ticker tape parade down Market Street after the team’s four-game sweep.  Looking to beat the mob, not to mention parking hassles? Book the “W Night Out” package at W San Francisco, located just around the block from the parade route. The package is available for $469 per night, at (415) 777-5300 . . . . Solvang will sparkle during its annual Julefest (pronounced Yule-Fest) Celebration Dec. 1-19. Details, www.SolvangUSA.com . . . . Gordon Ramsay’s the London West Hollywood is offering a three-course festive Thanksgiving menu that includes: pumpkin soup, roasted organic turkey, butter poached halibut and baked apple tarte tatin. The price is $95 per person. Reservations (310) 358-7788 . . . . The 24th Annual Chocolate, Wine & Roses Festival will take place 7-10 p.m. Saturday at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe in Incline Village. Tickets are $85 . . . . Travel quote of the day: “Anyone could see that the wind was a special wind this night, and the darkness took on a special feel because it was All Hallows' Eve. Everything seemed cut from soft black velvet or gold or orange velvet. Smoke panted up out of a thousand chimneys like the plumes of funeral parades. From kitchen windows drifted two pumpkin smells: gourds being cut, pies being baked.” (Ray Bradbury, in “The Halloween Tree”)
