The combination of crystalline lake and crowning mountain peaks creates gorgeous vistas from every angle, stunning sunsets, and marvelous star-gazing. Tahoe is as loved in its snowy winter as in its brilliant summer. With each season, the area beckons nature lovers, adventurers, and those in need of a retreat. Skiers, snowboarders, and snow aficionados flock to Tahoe each winter, while hikers, mountain bikers, and lake devotees return every summer.
