Tahoe Getaway Guide

Mark Twain and Teddy Roosevelt raved about it. The Nevada Silver rush took all of the trees they could cut from around it and took then to Viriginia City to build the mines and houses there. Swells from San Francisco discovered it and brought their big wooden boats, and built grandiose" cabins" around it. A new generation (or two) of pines have grown and the lake is a national gem enjoyed by throngs of visitors to the largest alpine lake in America.

Lake Tahoe captures the imagination of everyone who visits this shimmering very blue body of water, sitting in a magnificent mountain bowl on the heights of the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada. We hope this guide will help you to plan your next visit here.

Skiing Tahoe

The ski resort season is coming to a close with smaller operations already closed. You'll find information and links on our guide to skiing at all the ski resorts and cross-country ski areas in the Tahoe-Truckee area, including links to projected closing dates, snow reports, ski facilities, runs, boarding, and kids programs.

Tahoe Concerts and Special Events

There's lots of entertainment in the South and North Lake Tahoe casinos, plus festivals and other seasonal events around the lake.
Our events guide lets you know what's happening.

The Great Outdoors

Our Outdoors page has more than a dozen things to do -- other than skiing -- on and around Lake Tahoe, including fishing, hiking, and water activity. Take a bike ride beside the lake -- in South Lake Tahoe, and on the North and West Shores.

Tahoe Restaurants

Lake Tahoe dining features a wide range of cuisines. Check out our large list of eating places from casino restaurants, buffets, and coffee shops, to quiet, romantic dining rooms -- beside the lake or in the woods.
