Lake Tahoe is a spectacular destination. Set in the heights of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, 22 miles of deep blue water stretches from north shore to south. Nestled among those mountains are 14, varied and enticing ski resorts waiting to welcome you. Straddling the California / Nevada border, some of the best skiing in the United States can be found around this beautifully blue piece of water, and what better way could there be to spend a fortnight than by touring them all? This is the ultimate destination for your California ski safari!
Start at the southern end of the lake with Heavenly, one of Tahoe’s biggest and highest resorts. By day, explore the mainly wooded slopes with breathtaking views of the lake; by night take in the lively entertainment. While you’re down south, check out Sierra at Tahoe and Kirkwood too, before heading round to the north shore and continuing your epic adventure. Check out Squaw Valley, home of the 1960 Winter Olympics, Northstar at Tahoe and nine more amazing resorts. Soak up the views of the lake, the snow-capped peaks and the California sun. With such outstanding scenery, it’s a good job the skiing’s first class too.
