Always pray for snow! How do you describe skiing in Lake Tahoe?  Let’s start with breathtaking views, spectacular mountains, miles & miles of winding slopes, skiers, snowboarders, trams, gondolas, quads, chairs, terrain parks, moguls, food, drink, fun, sun, and over 400 inches of snow each year.  Green, blue, or black diamond.  Steep & deep or mild & groomed.  Ski or ride, ride or ski, or both in the same day!  Epic, sunny ski days and memories to last a life time – all at a place known simply as “The Lake” as in Lake Tahoe where the entire skiing and riding experience has gone to a new level.


Where to ride and ski in Tahoe?  Well, it’s simple… and not so simple given there are over 18 world-class ski resorts in Lake Tahoe to choose from!  On the Tahoe's South Shore the most popular ski resorts are Heavenly (large) and Kirkwood (the local’s favorite).  Homewood is the choice on the West Shore and on the North Shore, the popular resorts are Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows (always lots of snow and now joined with Squaw), Sugar Bowl (closest major Tahoe ski area to Sacramento and the Bay Area), Diamond Peak (great views & groomers), Boreal (small and open for night skiing and riding), and Northstar (popular with families).


Season Passes can be purchased and if you ski or ride more than 5-6 days per year, they’re a steal not to mention an awesome deal.  Check Tahoe's best live and up-to-date Tahoe ski reports here where you'll find ski and snow conditions reported each morning directly from each resort.  For a list of Lake Tahoe ski resorts and a ski resort map see the bottom of this page.  Look above for ski resort opening and closing dates.  If you are driving to Lake Tahoe, check our extensive weather page which includes forcasts, radar maps, road conditions and live highway webcams.  See you on the slopes!
