North Lake Tahoe Ski Resorts

North Lake Tahoe is home to some of the world’s finest ski resorts like Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, and Northstar at Tahoe. These resorts see over 400 inches of pure white snow each year that attract skiers and snowboarders from all over the world. Top winter sports legends have called North Lake Tahoe home, most recently Olympic gold winner Shaun White. The top of the line amenities these resorts offer will keep you busy for days, but it’s the snow that keeps you coming back. Light and fluffy snow combined with epic downhill runs, half-pipes and parks, majestic views, and crystal clear air makes for the perfect winter vacation. Oh ya, did we mention Lake Tahoe? At Lake Tahoe recreation is virtually endless. So consider your vacation is just beginning once you are off the hill.

It’s not just the large North Lake Tahoe ski resorts that draw the crowds. Smaller resorts like Homewood and Diamond Peak offer jaw-dropping views of Lake Tahoe and really cater to families. Diamond Peak has a vertical drop of 1,840 feet which make it the fourth longest drop in the Lake Tahoe area. Homewood is protected from the wind when most large resorts go on wind hold. Boreal, Sugar Bowl, Soda Springs and Tahoe Donner also bring their unique qualities to the table. Boreal Ski Resort is the first and only all-mountain terrain park in the Lake Tahoe region. Sugar Bowl is a world-class mountain resort that features four peaks and 95 runs spread out over 1,500 acres. Combine easy Interstate 80 access, more affordable rates, and plenty of snow and these resorts will easily make your list of ski resorts to explore on your next trip to Lake Tahoe. Don’t forget to venture to the South Lake Tahoe ski resorts where your skiing adventure continues.
