It’s spring at Lake Tahoe, which means that signature springtime combination of powder snow followed by extended periods of classic Sierra sunshine. The latest storm dropped over a foot of fresh snow on the Ski Lake Tahoe resorts, which are still boasting impressive summit base depths of more than 100 inches. If you’re thinking of heading to Lake Tahoe this spring for a ski vacation, you won’t be disappointed. Think phenomenal snow conditions, a full slate of special events and unparalleled savings on your ski and snowboard vacation.
If you’ve not yet been to Lake Tahoe in spring, you’ll have to trust us when we say that Tahoe’s legendary spring skiing must be experienced first-hand to be fully understood. It includes miles of carvable corduroy, dazzling Sierra sunshine, and bikini-clad skiers and snowboarders, all with the stunning blue of Lake Tahoe as the backdrop.
Springtime here also means the unique ability to enjoy a sunset stroll on the beaches of Sand Harbor or a refreshing dip in the crystal clear waters of Emerald Bay after an invigorating day on the slopes - experiences that you can’t find anywhere else!
To complement the sunshine, snow and great conditions, the Ski Lake Tahoe spring calendar is filled with world-class competitions, one-of-a-kind special events and a palpable party atmosphere that extends far beyond the ski area boundaries. The US Alpine Championships and the US Freestyle Championships will provide spectators with an up-close-and-personal preview of potential US Olympians headed to Sochi; in addition, longtime industry pros Shaun White, Tanner Hall and Glen Plake will all be hosting high-energy events at Lake Tahoe resorts this spring. Daily après ski parties, free concerts and slope-side festivals will serve to get skiers and snowboarders in the right frame of mind to fully embrace the 24/7 nightlife and Vegas-style entertainment offered at lake-wide casino resort properties.
And don’t forget the sunblock.
