Lake Tahoe offers skiers anything and everything they are looking for. Want a good resort for the family? No problem, Northstar or Heavenly's your answer. Want a crazy nightlife and easy access to awesome skiing? Bingo, Heavenly's your ticket. Want to stay in a charming mountain town without the commercialisation you might find at typical resorts? Perfect for you are Incline Village or Tahoe City. Bottom line is that the collection of ski areas and towns are close enough together making exploring fun and easy, yet each area is distinctive and unique. You'll see the differences between Kirkwood and Squaw, Alpine Meadows and Sierra. And you'll love 'em all for it!

The ski areas are very popular on holiday weekends with skiers from L.A., San Francisco, and Sacramento but weekdays, the resorts can feel empty. Most accommodation sits at the foot of the largest ski area, Heavenly, and many visitors find plenty enough at Heavenly alone to keep them occupied all holiday. It has one of the largest ski areas in America with terrain for all abilities.
