Booyah's at Heavenly Mountain Resort

Tahoe’s Best On-Mountain Dining

Half the fun of a day of snowboarding or skiing is being able to enjoy a break midday with a great meal. Sure, we’ve had days where it’s been all about the bell to bell turns, with a cold energy bar or a smushed PB&J lunch on the chairlift. But there is something to be said for a leisurely lunch, especially after you’ve earned your calories with a few hours of leg burning descents.

Best Places To Take a Photo at Tahoe Ski Resorts

We all know that half the fun of a winter vacation is taking photos to make your friends jealous share with your friends and family afterward, showcasing both your amazing skiing/riding skills as well as your vacation planning prowess. Lake Tahoe in the winter offers no shortage of backdrops for your photos, whether it’s the impossibly blue lake, snow covered peaks, stunning vistas or a combination of the three.

Hiking at the Lake Tahoe ski resorts

We don't hide the fact that we love the ski resorts in winter, but did you know that we also love them in the summer? There are a ton of fun activities to enjoy here after the snow melts.  

Hiking is just one of those activities, and the ski resorts have miles of trails for a wide variety of ability levels. Whether you’re seeking a gentle meadow stroll or are looking for some serious vertical, you have options at Lake Tahoe. Along with sunshine, stunning views, and an on-mountain restaurant or two.
