Lake Tahoe Vacations

Vacation in Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe has been a vacation destination for over three thousand years, when the Washoe and Paiute Indians enjoyed their summer R&R at the Lake. For just about as long, Lake Tahoe has elicited superlatives from its visitors. The Washoe called it "The Lake of the Sky". Mark Twain proclaimed the Lake to be "the fairest picture the whole earth affords!" These days, we use phrases like majestic, breathtaking and awe-inspiring.

However you describe it, Lake Tahoe is a pristine jewel of nature. Surrounded on all sides by the Sierra Nevada mountain range, you can see on average 72 feet down into its cobalt waters.

Lake Tahoe was formed about 25-million years ago and is the second deepest lake in the United States at 1,645 feet deep. It is the tenth-deepest in the world and one of the clearest. Lake Tahoe has 75-miles of shoreline, is 22-miles long, 12-miles wide, and the lake surface level averages 6,225 feet.

A vacation to Resorts in Lake Tahoe is all about time management. With great South Lake Tahoe activities, skiing and more winter and summer activities than any other travel destination, you’ll have a tough time squeezing everything in.

But above all else, Lake Tahoe is about the Lake itself. And the most spectacular view of Lake Tahoe - perhaps the most awesome view from a ski area summit anywhere - is at the top of Heavenly's Sky Express. From here the Lake looks like a brilliant blue sapphire, encased in a rugged ring of snowy granite. You won't find a better view than this at any Lake Tahoe ski area.

There's special, and then there's a whole different category of special - reserved exclusively for Lake Tahoe.

Heavenly powder skiing

Why Ski at Lake Tahoe?

Heavenly’s elevation means we get piles of soft snow when smaller mountains get rain. Where else can you ski in two different states on a variety of beautiful, challenging terrain?

Between the epic Tahoe snow and breathtaking views of the lake, we offer a one of a kind ski experience. Finish your day off with the best après ski scene on the west coast including our Unbuckle Après Ski Party.
