Also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of St. Valentine, February 14th is the day of love. One origin legend says that Saint Valentine officiated at weddings for soldiers who were not permitted to marry. Many traditions have developed, including one in Italy where lovers give each other keys that represent the keys to their hearts. For modern Valentine’s Day, the keys to one of our Valentine’s Day vacation home rentals in Lake Tahoe is a perfect place to start.

What to Do on Your Valentine’s Day Trip
Lake Tahoe is one of America’s favorite winter playgrounds. In February, snow sports are still in full swing, and there are also many non-skiing attractions. Here is a rundown of things you can do while you’re here.
Snow Sports in Lake Tahoe
The north end alone has nine ski resorts! If you like large resorts with many skiable acres, try Squaw Valley and its less crowded sister, Alpine Meadows. You can ski both of these resorts on the same day with one pass and ride the shuttle bus in between them.
Mt. Rose Ski Resort is the highest resort at Lake Tahoe. It’s a favorite for its 1,200 acres of skiing at reasonable prices. Beginners to adrenaline junkies will love the selection of green to double black diamond trails.
Incline Village’s Diamond Peak Ski Resort is a must for fans of vertical. Although there is not much parking near the resort, there are plenty of shuttles to get you where you need to go. If you want to treat your valentine to views as well as skiing, go to Homewood Mountain.
Donner Ski Ranch was one of the first ski resorts built in the Tahoe region. If you like the old family-owned feelings of the ski areas back in the day, this is a beautiful trip. Tahoe Donner is another down-home ski resort, built in a residential area. They also rent fat-tire bikes to people who like to ride in the snow.
Granlibakken Tahoe is not only a popular ski resort, but it also has a sledding hill that is a local favorite. You can rent sleds, too!
One stand-out favorite ski resort is NorthStar, California. This resort has a whopping 3,700 acres of skiable trails and a summit of 8,61o ft. Located in Truckee, this resort is on a mountainside with natural wind shielding, and you can take a gondola from The Village to the resort. This resort also rents out fat bikes.
After you ski at NorthStar, the ice rink, live music, food, and more are waiting for you in The Village nearby. There are also lots of indoor activities and shopping if you’re tired of being outdoors.
Visit Nature at a State Park
Skiing and snowboarding are fun, but let’s look at some other things to do in the winter in North Lake Tahoe.
A beautiful place to take a sleigh ride with your valentine is Sand Harbor at Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park. There’s nothing more romantic than a horse-drawn sleigh ride with a majestic Belgian draft horse.
Spooner Lake State Park is a favorite for snowshoe enthusiasts, and you can rent snowshoes that will fit your standard winter boots. Tahoe Rim Trail is also open for snowshoeing and is a favorite place to take your dog to play in the snow. EdZ’berg Sugar Pine Point State Park is a value-packed option if you want to go cross country skiing.
If you enjoy the excitement and scenery of a snowmobiling trip, book a tour with Lake Tahoe Snowmobiling Tours. Located at Tahoe Vista, this excursion will take you through the wilderness, where you can view untouched beauty and wildlife.
