Skiing & Snowboarding around Lake Tahoe!

Ski and ride on some of the steepest terrain in America by day . . .
. . . play, dine and dance in famous casinos by night!

Skiing at Lake Tahoe dates back to the mid 1800's when John "Snowshoe" Thompson crossed over what is now Heavenly on his 90-mile mail route from northern Nevada to northern California, traversing a portion of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range.

Lake Tahoe is ideally situated in the High Sierra, the snowiest region on the North American continent where snow is known to have fallen in every month of the year. The Sierra Nevada is directly in the path of huge Northern Pacific storms that swing in from the Gulf of Alaska, so the Lake Tahoe Basin gets routinely hammered with a ton of white gold, in a surprisingly short amount of time. In fact, the Lake Tahoe Basin gets more average annual snowfall than either Utah or Colorado!

When one of the Sierra's notorious snow storms -- known to dump up to seven feet of snow in just 24 hours -- rules out a day on the slopes, there's a full docket of quality daytime diversions to enjoy in Lake Tahoe.

We invite you to explore this site and spend some time reading about each of the 15 major ski resorts in the Lake Tahoe Basin. Good luck deciding which resort to ski or ride first. Then again, you could just spend the entire winter in Lake Tahoe and experience all of them. After all, life is short and Tahoe is really big!
