Tahoe Things to Do: Snow Skiing & Snowboarding

It’s winter, the snow is falling and nothing will do but to slap those apparatuses onto your feet and get out there! Lake Tahoe skiing calls! If you live here or area frequent visitor, you know how epic this place is for winter sports. Beyond Tahoe skiing, there’s snowboarding, cross-country, sledding, snowshoeing, tubing, sleigh rides and more. Our Lake Tahoe ski resorts welcome thousands of winter enthusiasts every year, as do the hotels, rental homes and B&Bs. It’s a winter wonderland here with an average snowfall of 125 inches at lake level and 300 to 500 inches at the Tahoe ski resorts. That’s a whole lot of the white stuff! To put it in perspective, at the highest amount, that’s almost 42 feet of snow. If you’re an avid skier, you inevitably arrive with all your own gear. But if you’re new to the sport or need an equipment upgrade, you’ll be happy to discover the Lake Tahoe ski rental businesses. They can supply most everything you need, from the correct skis or boards to match your body to clothing to keep you warm (and trendy!) on the mountain to accessories such as goggles to assure your eyes don’t get snow blindness. Since you can typically enjoy Lake Tahoe skiing from early fall to late May or early June, you have plenty of time to perfect your skills!
