Mountain Resorts Edit

During ski season, thousands of people from all over Nevada and California, including Reno, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, and Sacramento, flock to the slopes for downhill skiing. Lake Tahoe, in addition to its panoramic beauty, is well known for its blizzards.

Many of these resorts also feature activities and special events during the rest of the year with many scenic mountain hiking trails.

Some of the major ski areas in Tahoe include:

  • Heavenly Mountain Resort: the largest ski area in California and Nevada, located near Stateline
  • Squaw Valley: the second largest ski area, known for its hosting of the 1960 Winter Olympics, located near Tahoe City
  • Alpine Meadows: a medium-sized ski area on the north shore only a few miles from Squaw Valley

  • Northstar at Tahoe: a popular north shore ski area
