We're home to the largest concentration of ski resorts and the largest alpine lake in North America. There are more chairlifts and combined miles of terrain parks than the entire state of Colorado. Yet even with these credentials, North Lake Tahoe continues to expand the winter experience by improving snowmaking capabilities and adding celebrations to an already packed events calendar. On and off mountain, the destination proves that adventure seekers of all levels are in for a treat this season.

Mountain Biking at Lake Tahoe

There is nothing quite like the feel of floating downhill. I first found this bliss skiing, and used to spend my off-seasons dreaming of the time when I’d be back on snow.

Until I started mountain biking.

2013/14 Lake Tahoe winter wrap-up

Sad to admit it, but the winter season over.  It's time to store the skis and snowboards, reflect on the season, and start counting down to next winter.  

What were your favorite moments of the 2013/14 season? Typically any day on the slopes equals a terrific day in my book, but below are five moments that stand out. Did I miss yours? Let me know in the comments.

2013/14 Lake Tahoe ski resort closing dates

For many, spring brings relief after a cold, long, winter. For others, it’s a bittersweet time, signaling the eventual end of ski season. The sad news for snow addicts is that the first of the Ski Lake Tahoe resorts close in just a few short weeks. It’s ironic, as skiing and riding is terrific right now, thanks to last week’s dose of winter!

That said, if you’ve not yet made ski and snowboard vacation plans to Lake Tahoe, you still have time (though don’t delay!).

Hope to see you out there!
