Lake Tahoe is one of the USA’s most beautiful outdoor adventure regions. Located right on the border between California and Nevada, the mountains around the lake provide some of North America’s most sought-after skiing and snowboarding.
The vistas from the slops and the town of Tahoe are breathtaking with the contrast of the azure blue lake, the green of the pines and the white of the snow combining for unforgettable scenery.
Not only is the skiing and snowboarding fantastic and the views simply sensational, but the nightlife is second to none as the lake also hosts some of the best apres ski venues in North America. The California side of the lake is quiet and serene while in true Nevada style, as soon as you cross the border there is an abundance of bars, clubs and casinos that are open 24 hours a day.
To go along with the skiing and boarding there is also the opportunity to ski cross country, do some ice skating or even try some snowmobiling.
There are slopes for all abilities and experience levels across the Heavenly, Kirkwood, Heavenly and Sierra-at-Tahoe ski fields.
Lake Tahoe is an alternative stop to Yosemite on USA Winter Tours that travel to the West Coast of the USA.
