About Lake Tahoe
Lake Tahoe, spanning the states of Nevada and California, is home to several world-class ski resorts all within 1 hrs drive of the village of South Lake Tahoe. This region is blessed with some of the largest snowfalls in the USA, but also averages around 300 days of sunshine a year, so if you are after powder skiing or boarding under blue skies, then this is the place!
The main resorts in the Lake Tahoe area are Heavenly, Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, Kirkwood, Northstar-at-Tahoe, Sierra-at-Tahoe. The majority of people use the village of South Lake Tahoe as a base for skiing this fantastic area. We recommend a rental car if you want to ski several resorts during your stay.
