Lake Tahoe Boating, Jet Skiing, and Waterskiing

Story from Bill Cottrill, General Manager at Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel

My Tahoe Waterskiing

My Tahoe is waterskiing.

My favorite time to enjoy the serenity of Lake Tahoe is early morning. This is when the lake is typically calm, no waves, just “glass” as water-skiers call it. A great spot for Lake Tahoe waterskiing in calm water is west of Baldwin beach, locally known as “ski beach.” There’s even a good chance you’ll see Bald Eagles searching for fish. Keep in mind that the winds typically pick up around 11 am, so if you’re on a watercraft, plan accordingly and be safe.

Book your stay at Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel for easy access to local waterskiing hot spots, and get the locals’ perspective and advice from our team!
