So besides the obvious, snow skiing, what is there to do in Lake Tahoe in the winter?
From TripAdvisor’s tips on Lake Tahoe: “Whether you choose to go snowboarding at Heavenly Valley or Kirkwood Mountain or prefer cross-country skiing at Spooner Lake, a South Lake Tahoe vacation will put you close to it all. If you want to enjoy the nightlife or gambling on the Nevada side, choose to stay in town. Take a break from the slopes to ride the Gondola to the top of Heavenly or take a romantic sleigh ride in the snow.
With a backdrop of pristine Lake Tahoe, the town of South Lake Tahoe is an idyllic place to visit anytime of year. Go boating, kayaking or jet skiing on the lake’s South Shore. Or take a cruise over to Emerald Bay on the North Shore. Or stay on dry land with a hike or bike ride along the Tahoe Rim Trail for jaw-dropping views. If you want to try your luck, walk or drive the few blocks to Nevada and visit one of the area’s casinos.”
