Flanked by rugged mountains, North Lake Tahoe goes beyond the regular ski and snowboard fun. Folks in this part of Nevada know how to enjoy winter, thanks to a strong pioneer spirit.

Blessed by an alpine lake shared between Nevada and California, it’s where you can dip into favourite pastimes that satisfy all ages year-round. It’s a destination for everyone. And the winter season has its own special appeal where each day is fuelled with different activities. 

Home to 12 ski resorts that hover around 1,890 metres, North Lake Tahoe boasts North America’s largest concentration of ski resorts for all ski levels. For non-skiers, head off-mountain for winter festivals, the annual Polar Bear Swim, new après-ski dining options and a variety of winter activities. The 5th WinterWonderGrass Festival, a music event, showcases mountain bluegrass sounds in a laid-back vibe.

For those interested in skiing and snowboarding, nearby iconic resorts include Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Diamond Peak. Skiers find their adrenalin rush at Squaw, considered the biggest, however Alpine Meadows is a winter playground for all. For the best selfie shot that includes the lake background, hit the slopes by Diamond Peak for the ultimate postcard photo.

If unique winter experiences are on your agenda, sleigh rides, stargazing and snowshoeing take on new meaning around North Lake Tahoe. Nothing quite compares to Chickadee Ridge, a wooded trail popular with snowshoers who watch little chickadees eat bird seeds right out of their hands.
