I learned to Ski in 2015 when I moved to california and there was no going back, skiing is extremely addictive and exciting at the same time. It is a blessing to live in a city where you get the lakes and mountains. Snow and Beaches are just an hour away which gives me the opportunity to do activities by the season. 

While skiing and snowboarding in South Lake Tahoe are out of this world, don’t miss these other activities in between runs on the slopes. Challenging back-country trails, tubing hills, and inviting fireplaces are awaiting vacationers on the mountain. Pack up your snow gear and get ready to take on some new adventures this season.

Individuals of any age and ability can participate in the sport since your outing can be tailored to match your own interests and fitness levels.  Snowshoe is footwear for walking over snow. Snowshoes work by distributing the weight of the person over a larger area so that the person’s foot does not sink completely into the snow, a quality called “flotation”. Snowshoeing is a form of hiking.

Ice Skating

Heavenly Village: No spot is as picturesque for ice skating in South Lake Tahoe as Heavenly Village with holiday lights strung all around and music playing. Ice skates are available for rent and you can even buy day or season passes. Other options are as follows: Edgewood on Ice, South Lake Tahoe Recreation Complex and Sawmill Pond. 

Relaxation by the Fireside

As temperatures cool and people pull out their winter jackets, restaurants around the Lake Tahoe Basin are preparing for winter. With uncertainty about what the state of COVID will be in the winter, restaurants are preparing to continue outdoor dining even after the snow begins to fall.Imagine a crackling fire, cozy seating, and hours of conversation at a local café  Artemis Lakefront Cafe, Coachman Hotel, LAKE TAHOE ALEWORX,  MOODY’S BISTRO BAR & BEATS, ALIBI ALE WORKS, COLD WATER BREWERY AND GRILL.
