Serving as the Winter Wonderland of California, Lake Tahoe offers several outdoor activities for people of all ages. Whether you are travelling with a couple of your close buddies, looking for a romantic getaway or taking the kids on a snowy escapade, the snow covered Sierras and stunning blue lake will serve as the landscape you need for your winter adventures.

  • Skiing/Snowboarding- With 7 premier ski resorts close by, you’ll be sure to find the terrain for your skill level.
  • Ice Skating/Tubing – a seasonal ice skating rink is installed at Heavenly Village and almost every ski resort has a tubing option for the kids who are looking for a quick thrill on the mountain.
  • Snowmobiling– if you’re looking for a unique way to experience the Sierras, this is the adventure for you. Several tour companies in the area will give you access to exciting trails that are easy to navigate for the whole family.
  • Photography Tours- This is the perfect activity to feed your creativity. Several tours offer transportation to the most beautiful “secret” spots around the lake. A real treat for all photographers and nature lovers.

Blades Of Steel

February 16, 2010

Ah yes…nothing like gliding along the ice on sharpened blades of steel. Has the Winter Olympics gotten you all heated up with ice skating fever?

If the answer to the above question is yes and you’re coming to Tahoe then you’re certainly in luck. Although for a long period of time the only ice rink was at Squaw Valley that has changed considerably in the past ten years or so. At last count there are now six. Two of them are at south shore, two at Squaw Valley, one  over on the north shore at Northstar Village, and one just a little south of Tahoe at the  Kirkwood Ski Resort.

So…if your idea of winter fun doesn’t include the intensity of zooming down the side of a mountain with two high-tech wooden bed slats tied to your feet then maybe you should give ice skating a try.
