In the winter, the Lake Tahoe area is one of the best places to visit. There are multiple world class ski areas and every conceivable winter sport available. Generally, the mountains surrounding the lake get a significant amount of snow so there is rarely any concern that you will be able to enjoy your favorite activity. From late October last year until late April this year, the highest elevations received a cumulative total of approximately 60 feet of snowfall.
As spectacular as Lake Tahoe is for winter fun, it is equally or possibly even better for summer fun. On the water or in the surrounding mountains, you can indulge every sort of outdoor activity. Boating and water skiing, sailing, fishing, para-sailing, hiking, biking and mountain climbing. All while surrounded by the most stunning lake and mountain vistas imaginable.
We were fortunate to be able to visit our friends who have a house not far from the eastern shore of Lake Tahoe. We were able to go hiking, bicycle riding and take a sailboat ride. It’s so difficult to choose photos that best capture the beauty of Lake Tahoe. Our photography skills are just not adequate. I’m not sure anyone can truly capture what it’s like. When hiking you can see meadows filled with wildflowers framed by the lake and snow capped mountains. We hope the photos will give you some feel for this beautiful place.
