Skiing in Lake Tahoe
Snowfall in Lake Tahoe tends to be so heavy that they measure it in feet instead of inches. Beginners will find gentle slopes and great tuition in all of the areas. Intermediates are so spoilt for choice that you won’t be able to ski all the runs in one single skiing holiday, although you can give it a good try! Advanced skiers and experts on the slopes loyally return to the well-equipped and challenging Tahoe terrain. The famous KT-22 peak is fantastic and if you feel super-brave why not ski the previously-thought-unskiable 75 Chute. Snowboarders will be in their element with the copious amounts of endless powder, whilst the area called ‘Heavenly’ lives up to its name with 4 well-maintained boardparks. Lake Tahoe is a popular choice for mixed skiing and snowboarding group holidays.
