Winter Activities in South Lake Tahoe

When you’re staying in the heart of the Sierra Nevadas, you’re guaranteed a winter wonderland.

With 18 unique nearby ski areas — including Heavenly Ski Resort right around the corner — a laid-back day on the sunny slopes is always within reach. From alpine and cross-country skiing to snowboarding for all skill levels, your high-altitude adventure awaits.

Winter fun doesn’t stop at the slopes. A snow-covered landscape offers plenty of other ways to experience the season, from sleigh rides and ice skating to snowmobiling along the crest of the Sierra with spectacular Lake Tahoe views below.

Summer Activities in Lake Tahoe

South Lake Tahoe shines in the summer. Discover biking excursions ranging from joy rides to challenging single-track mountain routes, world-class golf with majestic mountain views and holes on the shoreline, and watersports from kayaking to jet-skiing in America’s largest alpine lake.

This side of the lake is also a hiker’s paradise. The scenic trails of designated protected wilderness area Desolation Wilderness are sought-after for long-distance hiking, backcountry hiking, and shorter routes better for beginners and low-key adventurers.
