Spring is marching in, but there is still plenty of time to ride the mountain in Lake Tahoe . We think March is one of the best times to visit Lake Tahoe. Generally, Lake Tahoe enjoys plenty of snow and mild temperatures throughout March, making it the perfect time for skiing, snowboarding, and other outdoor activities. The mountains are calling.
1. Sunshine and skiing.
The combination of ample sunshine and warmer temperatures make March one the best times to enjoy the climate and get on the slopes. In fact, we see average temperatures of around 44 degrees in March. Tahoe’s soft late winter snow paired with mild temperatures make for the perfect opportunity for a successful day outdoors. Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel guests can soak in the Vitamin D as they walk to the slopes. (The Heavenly Gondola is just steps from our front door!)
2. Great deals.
Come midweek, Sunday through Thursday, and you reap big savings! Check out our vacation packages and specials! Taking advantage of these special deals is a great way to make your ski trip to Lake Tahoe more affordable. As an added bonus, there’s generally less traffic and crowds in the middle of the week so you’ll maximize your fun.
3. More daylight = more mountain fun.
Longer days mean you can spend more time enjoying all the fun that Lake Tahoe ahs to offer. March is full of events, free concerts, and après-ski parties. In fact, Spring Loaded, which generally kicks off in March, is full of great food, entertainment, and deals to help you make the most of the spring season. Pack in maximum experience with still enough time left over to find the perfect spot to catch a spectacular Tahoe sunset.
4. Snow is on its way.
Lake Tahoe generally sees more than 35 inches of snow in the month of March. Mix that with the mild temperatures and you have the perfect weather for skiing, snowshoeing, and other snow activities. Be sure to check online for the latest snow, weather, and ski trail conditions.
5. It’s Tahoe.
It really doesn’t get any better than this.
