Skiing the powder at Alpine Meadows
Description - Located in the Sierra Nevada mountains, Lake Tahoe's beautiful, sapphire-blue waters straddle the California-Nevada state line. The lake's elevation averages 6,225 ft, and surrounding peaks reach heights of up to 10,880 ft. Millions of people come to the Lake Tahoe Region every year to ski and snowboard at its world class ski resorts.

Attractions - The Lake Tahoe region offers more places to ski and snowboard than any other destination in North America. The numerous ski resorts are complemented by an abundance of lodging and entertainment options. The resorts around Lake Tahoe range from large, world famous, destinations to small, affordable, family and local oriented resorts.

Recreation - The Lake Tahoe Region Ski Resorts offer outstanding opportunities for skiing and snowboarding. Many of the resorts also offer cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, tubing, and other snow sports.

Climate - Changeable weather conditions are common in the Lake Tahoe Basin throughout the year. Winter storms may occur from September through June, with heavy snow accumulations likely. Many of the ski resorts expect an average of over 450 inches of snow annually and can stay open until June. Sunny, summer skies may cloud over quickly with thundershowers, catching some people by surprise. Weather may also vary or change rapidly from lake-level (6,225 ft) to mountain peaks (10,880 ft).

Location - The Lake Tahoe Region surrounds beautiful Lake Tahoe and straddles the California-Nevada border between Sacramento, California and Reno, Nevada. Most of the resorts are accessed by Interstate 80 or US Highway 50.
