The mountains around Lake Tahoe are renowned for their plentiful snowfall, wide variety of trails, and exquisite natural beauty, making Lake Tahoe the perfect place to plan the ultimate winter ski trip.
One of the best places to ski and snowboard in the Lake Tahoe area is at the Alpine Meadows Ski Resort. Here, thirteen ski lifts service ski trails that span over the course of 2,400 acres that receive over forty feet of snow on average each year. Alpine Meadows also has an obstacle course terrain park on the mountain that is suited for everyone from beginners to expert skiers and snowboarders.
Cool Things to Do and See Nearby
Close by Alpine Meadows Ski Resort is the Village at Squaw Valley, where visitors can shop at stores and dine at restaurants to their heart’s content. Shops range from sports gear stores to art galleries, and restaurants like Euro Crepe, Ice Bar, and Twenty-Two Bistro and Bar provide diverse and delectable culinary options. There are even fire pits where you can warm your toes after a long day on the slopes and roast a marshmallow or two!
Other awesome activities and attractions like the scenic Aerial Tram ride, snowshoe dinner tours, and SnoVentures make for wonderful additions to your time at Alpine Meadows.
