Winter weather highlights world-class ski resorts, (take advantage of great offerings with snowboard and ski rentals), snowmobiling, cross country skiing, snow shoeing and more. Families also love nearby snow parks with their sledding and tubing hills. Or, go ice skating with that special someone and sip a hot toddy overlooking the lake.
Summer recreation offers a completely different kind of fun! Lake Tahoe and the Truckee River welcome you with beaches galore, where you can picnic, sunbathe and swim. Many places on the lake offer watercraft and boat rentals, boat cruises, and tour guides. Charter a fishing expedition and catch the biggest fish in the lake. Go "fore" it and try one of the many challenging golf courses. Rent a bike and explore hundreds of trails. North Lake Tahoe hiking trails lead to amazing views of the lake, river, and surrounding mountains, and can be explored on foot, mountain bike, or horseback. And of course, if you are looking for something a little more relaxing, you can retreat to one of the numerous spas or venture into town to do a little mountain shopping.
