Lake Tahoe Ski Resorts:

Alpine Meadows
This mountain mesmerizes us with perfect powder that lingers days after a storm; grants moments of clarity on quiet traverses through snow-covered trees; and converts visitors to locals with seven open bowls, gentle, top-to-bottom cruisers and forested glades.

A leader in the terrain parks, Boreal offers terrain park features throughout the mountain for all ability levels. Boreal Mountain Resort offsets 100 percent of its electricity by purchasing green power.

Diamond Peak
Recognized for its family friendly atmosphere, incredible lake views and perfectly groomed runs, Diamond Peak has 655 acres of terrain with a peak elevation of 8,540 feet and a professional and welcoming staff.

Donner Ski Ranch
One of California’s first ski resorts, Donner Ski Ranch is located on historic US Route 40 high atop Donner Summit. On Donner Summit you’ll find an atmosphere that is relaxing and carefree, harkening back to times past.

Granlibakken is family owned, occupying 74 wooded acres in a picturesque mountain valley. It is a great place to avoid the crowds of larger Lake Tahoe ski resorts, while enjoying a day of skiing right out your back door.

Besides easy access to the South Lake Tahoe resort, visitors can enjoy the variety of amenities and facilities that are provided. On the mountain, riders and skiers can enjoy groomed runs, tree runs in the back-country and terrain park adventure.

Deemed the gem of Lake Tahoe’s West Shore by SKI Magazine, the 1,260-acre mountain offers unobstructed views of the lake and surrounding peaks. The historic setting of Tahoe’s West Shore and a family focused winter experience make Homewood unique.

With an average snowfall of more than 600 inches, skiers and riders can expect to find ample powder skiing and riding for their enjoyment. In 2009, Ski Magazine ranked this Sierra Crest resort as one of the nation’s top 10.

Mt. Rose
Mt. Rose is the closest resort to the Reno/Tahoe International Airport, and just 25 minutes from Reno’s 17,000 hotel rooms. Mt. Rose is a good choice for the first and last day of your Lake Tahoe vacation.

Northstar California
Northstar hosts many renown park events, and introduces new terrain and features in its award-winning terrain parks, which were recently ranked third in the country by readers of Transworld Snowboarding Magazine.
The 42-year-old resort focuses on family programs while offering a wide range of on-the-mountain activities with its multitude of well-received terrain parks and superpipe.

Soda Springs
The welcoming small resort spirit and relaxed atmosphere of days past can still be discovered at Soda Springs, located just off I-80 at Donner Summit.

Squaw Valley USA
Home to the 1960 Winter Olympics, Squaw is known for steep skiing and gorgeous views of Lake Tahoe; definitely one of the jewels of the region.

Sugar Bowl
Sugar Bowl is a place of precipitous peaks, steep narrow chutes and wide open bowls. It receives more snow than almost anywhere in North America with more than 500 inches of snow per year!

Tahoe Donner
Wide-open bowls, uncrowded slopes, great beginner terrain, excellent grooming and a friendly, courteous staff make it a great place to ride. The resort’s small size allows its staff to deliver the personal touch families are often looking for.
