Lake Tahoe is snow paradise! No place on earth has as many
exhilarating ways to enjoy the mountains each winter. And
since the snow lasts into the spring, you have plenty of
time to do them all!
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.
